Use the programs in the Utilities | Coords menu to perform a variety of coordinate conversions on data listed in the RockWorks datasheet or typed into the program window. This topic summarizes the tools that are available - click on a link for more information.

**Quick Locator**: Reads a single XY coordinate pair that you type into the program prompt and displays the point with a symbol in Google Earth. (More info)

**Convert Single Point**: Translates a single coordinate pair from one coordinate system to another. (More info)

**Convert Multiple Points**: Translates multiple coordinate pairs listed in the datasheet from one coordinate system to another. (More info)

**Polar -> XY**: Translates location coordinates listed in a polar coordinate format (bearing and distance) to X,Y coordinates in a Cartesian coordinate format, assuming a fixed reference point. (More info)

**XY -> Polar**: Translates X,Y locations in a Cartesian coordinate format to a polar coordinate format (bearing and distance) assuming a fixed reference point. (More info)

**XYZ -> Polar**: Converts a list of xyz coordinates into a borehole-style list of polar coordinates (i.e. distance, bearing, inclination). (More info)

**Azimuths -> Quadrants**: Translate decimal-style azimuth bearings (i.e. 135) into quadrant-style bearings (i.e. S45E). (More info)

**Quadrant -> Azimuth**: Translate quadrant-style bearings (i.e. S45E) into decimal-style azimuth bearings (i.e. 135). (More info)

**Rescale XY Data**: Rescale X,Y location coordinates by a user-declared real number value. (More info)

**Rotate XY Data**: Rotate X,Y location coordinates by a user-declared amount around a user-declared "pivot" point. (More info)

**Shift XY Data**: Shift the X,Y location coordinates by a user-declared amount in both the X and Y directions. (More info)

**Public Land Survey -> XY**: Computes X,Y coordinates for each corner of leases that are listed with Range, Township, Section descriptions. (More info)

**Local Origin Lon/Lat**: Compute the 0,0 lon/lat point for a local coordinate system, given a known point. (More info)

**Dates -> Stardate**: Translate dates into a decimal-style "stardate". (More info)

**Merge Time-Stamped GPS Data**: Compute X,Y coordinates to datasets that only have a "timestamp" using a GPS file. (More info)
