[Therion] strike and dip

Hi all,

we are solving a problem of adding a basic geological observations
(measurements) to therion.
When measuring a planar feature (bedding or fault or others), you measure
strike and dip.
When measuring linear features, trend and plunge is measured.
In the case of faults, also whether it is dextral or sinistral fault is
determined and potentially a magnitude.

My question is, do you have some idea/wish how to integrate these into
therion? Do you have some experience with it?

Our first idea is to add a standard T symbol for strike and dip measurement,
but there is one problem. Orientation of this symbol is not drawn, but it is
measured (with compass). But its position is given by position on the map.
Should these measurements be entered into a table (as centerline data are),
or put as options with symbols?

Do you have any ideas or comments?

Best regards, S.
