Change DPOS report output coordinates

Is there a way to select my MN county coordinate systems for coordinate reporting? I see where you can have "Auto" coordinate system, which is MN State Plane, but there is no preset list for the county systems. They're set up in my LS, so I know the systems have all the projection settings, but how do you punch them into the settings on DPOS?

That is correct. In the web app, there's a spot to specify the report coordinate system with "Auto" as the default. It would be great if there was a dropdown list to pick from, or even if it wasn't built into the website, a list to pick from to make sure I type it in correctly. Ideally, the report would spit out coordinates in my specified MN County Coordinate system, in US Survey Feet, which is what the counties I work in run on (no further conversions would be manually done by me).

Ok. We need some time to perform an examination how it may be done. Please share the data file you want to process and the county name.

Attached is a sample file similar to what I would be processing. The coordinate system of the project I'm working on is shown below:

Finally we found the resolution. This feature is quite experimental and now works in our development environment only

Please find attached file "NAD83 (2011) Minnesota Cass North.jcs" containing the county coordinate system transformation

To make the things possible you must have valid user account at http://dpos-dev.javad.com

First navigate import coordinate system page
Then upload XML file and then press 'Import' and 'Submit' buttons respectively

You must see the uploaded coordinate system in list

Navigate data upload page

upload your data and then press 'More' options button, set check to 'Private coordinate system' and then select your coordinate system

As the processing will be done you should see the report like this

Have a nice day

I tried what you suggested and it works perfectly - I can even set the report units to US survey feet so the report is on the exact same datum as my J-Field project. No more calculator conversions for me!

The only thing that make me cautious here is that it's in the developer section of the website, and an experimental method. I hope the reports/computations are equally reliable and accurate as they would be in the regular DPOS web portal (I'm sure they are). It would be awesome if we could link the coordinate database built into J-Field so that the dropdown list of coordinate systems in the DPOS web portal would be the same as you get on the LS - maybe someday...

Thank you for the fast answers, you've really went above and beyond to help me. This is why the Javad environment is so much fun - ordinary users providing feedback and working directly with developers to improve the product every day.

How do I get my report to show state plane coordinates like that? Mine show up in N and W. Is there a reason why default report shows utm is x,y and state plane isn't?
