Thirty years ago we called that COGO -- coordinate geometry. ;)

So far I am not finding any linux/unix aps for this. (You have to put
biomechanical in the search because software tracking movements of stocks
are also calle "motion analyis".
I have found one rather full featured commercial windows program called
ProAnalyst. It is a bit pricey but keeping in mind that the reason I did
not finish my PhD was that I tried to write a motion analysis program
for the Amiga (in Amiga Basic) and I had a trigonometry crises which kept
me from finishing the program.
However now that I am leaning to pull my research footage off my video
tapes I am inspired to try and finish the project.
The basic thing I need to be able to do is to mark points on a still
picture and measure lengths and angles determined by the points and save
the measurements to a datafile without having to hand enter the x,y
