Tech/Engineering - Architecture / Building surveying
German term or phrase: Flurachse
Context:

"In den meisten Fällen wird ein lokales Koordinatensystem definiert, dessen Ausrichtung sich vorzugsweise an den Hauptachsen des Bauwerks orientiert. Liegen die Koordinatenachsen parallel bzw. orthogonal beispielsweise zur dominierenden Flurachse des Bauwerks, erleichtert dies später viele konstruktive Zeichenvorgänge."

I presume that "Flur" is not translated literally (hallway/corridor) in this context!

* Sentence or paragraph where the term occurs: See above
* Document type: Book
* Target audience: Surveyors/architects
* Country and dialect (source): German
* Country and dialect (target): British English
