Improved Coordinate zone usage

Improved Coordinate zone usage

In South Africa, the coordinate system is different from the rest of the world. Not all countries use Easting and Northing, with the increases being east positive horizontal, and north positive vertical. South African coordinate systems use Y and X, with Y increase horizontal left, and x increase vertical down.


If the coordinates are adjusted to reflect positive values, points are created in the wrong Cartesian Quadrant, and coordinate transformations add unnecessary steps to the worflow.


Include an option to specify which values increase in which direction, to allow for more seamless collaboration.
