Plotting One or More LOPs Procedure Follow  the  steps  in  the  table  and  refer  to  the  accompanying  figures  to plot  LOPs. Step 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Action Plot  the  AP  (assumed  position).  This  is  the  whole  degree  of latitude  and  the  assumed  longitude.  In  our  example  problem this  would  be  Lat  37°  00.0'  N  Long  017°  52.2'  W. Lay  off  the  azimuth  line  (Zn)  from  the  AP  toward  or  away from  the  body,  depending  on  whether  the  observed  altitude (Ho)  is  greater  or  less  than  the  computed  altitude  (Hc). Measure  in  the  proper  direction,  along  the  azimuth  line,  the difference  between  the  observed  and  the  computed  altitude  in miles  and  tenths  of  miles.  This  is  the  value  of  a  or  intercept. Draw  a  line  at  the  extremity  of  a,  perpendicular  (add  90°  to  Zn) to  the  azimuth  line.  At  the  time  of  observation,  this perpendicular  line  is  the  LOP. Label  the  LOP  with  the  time  of  observation  and  the  name  of the  observed  body. Figure  9-12.  Plot  the  LOP. 9-28
