Assuming the two sections of the transect are straight, and you have the GPS coordinates of the ends to which you reference your measurements, it seems like an Excel spreadsheet could handle the rest with some old fashioned trigonometry. This would produce an XY table that could be brought into the GIS quite easily.

Subject: [UW-GIS-L] Georeferencing Points
I'm wondering if there is a relatively simple way to do this: I have a dataset consisting of points taken along a 10 m transect. I've recorded the position along the transect and the distance away from the transect in either direction. I have GPS coordinates for three points along the transect. Now I want to georeference all the points in the transect using the three GPS points.
