Survey routes design made of parallel transects

This tool allows to create parallel profiles for a specific survey area just introducing 2 geographical points
on the map (generally perpendicular to the general trend of the shore) and an uniformly-spacing distance between a selected number of profiles.

Application : optimization of bathymetric profiles in depth sounding surveys
Possibility to save the result in Olex format, kml for Google Earth display or CVS for spreadsheet and to play with a simulation tool to help to manage the reduction of costs involved in hydrography missions (calculating ETA on waypoints introducing boat speed for each leg)
