Wellpath Map

The wellpath is mapped by connecting the directional survey stations with circular arcs. The length of each arc is the measured distance from one station to the next. The directions measured at adjacent directional stations determine the directions of the endpoints of each circular arc (a bit of analytic geometry here).
