[Bldg-sim] DOE-2.2 geometry import troubles

Hi all;
I'm trying to figure out how to manually enter geometry in DOE-2.2 and I'm
having a little bit of trouble. My problems are myriad, but they essentially
boil down to this: when I enter
polygon.0 = POLYGON
V1 = (0.0,0.0)
V2 = (200,0)
V3 = (200,300)
V4 = (0,300)
..
floor.0 = FLOOR
AZIMUTH = 360
POLYGON = polygon.0
SHAPE = POLYGON
FLOOR-HEIGHT = 3.28
SPACE-HEIGHT = 3.28
..
space.0 = SPACE
ZONE-TYPE = UNCONDITIONED
POLYGON = polygon.0
SHAPE = POLYGON
..
face.0 = EXTERIOR-WALL
POLYGON = polygon.0
X = 0
Y = 0
Z = 0.0
AZIMUTH = 0.0
TILT = 0.0
CONSTRUCTION = "EWall Construction"
..
and import it to eQuest (the only good way I can think of to check if I've
entered my geometry correctly), the resulting EXTERIOR-WALL surface is not
where I expect it to be. I was expecting it to be in "NE" quadrant of the
the building's XY plane, but instead it's in the "SW" quadrant, as if it had
been rotated 180 degrees about the building coordinate system's z-axis.
Puzzlingly, the SPACE and FLOOR objects appear where I would expect them to
-- in the building's "NE" quadrant.
Clearly I'm misunderstanding something about how POLYGON objects are to be
positioned. If anyone could help me to understand what I've got wrong, I
would greatly appreciate it.
Many thanks,
Josh
