CoGo plugin for QGIS


This plugin was developed to enable efficient bulk capture of coordinate geometry off survey diagrams.

It caters for addition, modification and deletion of cadastral parcels.

Bearings and distances

Where bearing and distance data are available, they can and should be used to defined property boundaries. An initial beacon coordinate is captured and then bearings and distances are captured to define all other beacons in a chain.

Then properties are constructed by grouping beacons in a specific order to define a parcel polygon.


Where bearings and distances are not available, coordinates can be used instead to define beacons.


This plugin depends on a PostGIS database with a predefined schema including tables, materialised views and triggers. This schema will be created on initial setup when first running the plugin.

Sample Data

A sql script is provided which populates all the mandatory tables required by the plugin. In order to use the sample data create the database with a CRS: 26332. A sample survey is provided as a guideline on how to capture records.
