What the macro does
This macro creates a point with the average N, E and Z values (X, Y and Z) from a number of selected points. This
macro may be useful for calculating the average point from a number of GPS readings for the same point.
Using the macro
Select multiple points by holding down the shift key while clicking on the individual points, or click and drag a
rectangle over a range of points that you want to select (or you can also use the Edit - Find tool to select points
based on a number of criteria). Max 10
Select the menu option Bonus Tools
Calculations - Average point.
A new point will be created that represents the average values of the X, Y and Z coordinates of all the selected
points. The point will be red, so it is really visible.
If you no longer need the original points (the ones you selected), you can simply hit the delete key on your
keyboard to delete the original points. That way, the only point remaining will be the calculated average point.
You can change the color and style of the average point by double clicking it.
