Turn legal descriptions into a map drawing.
Easy to use data entry form. Enter lines, curves, azimuths, compass points and section calls. Data can be entered using the convenient Data Entry Form or freehand using word processor style entry. Legal Description plots can also be easily drawn using the call drawing tool.
Customizable Toolbar: Create an interface that fits to your workflow.
Layers: Layers allow you to have multiple legal descriptions plotted on a single drawing. Layers can be free floating or locked to a common starting point.
Perform plot calculations: Square Feet, Acres, Hectares, perimeter distance and more.
Metes and Bounds will calculate if the survey closes or not. Calculate closure errors: closing error ratios and the call needed to close the plot. Apply Compass Rule Adjustments.
The legal description plot closing error analyzer tool can look for common entry or survey errors and offer suggestions on how to correct them.
Auto-Completion of drawing. If you're missing the final segment of your land plotting data, let our Metes and Bounds - Legal Description plotting program finish the mapping for you. Determine closure errors. Have a bad or missing call? Enter a question mark (?) for the call and let the legal description plotting software find the missing call for you. Close drawings using Bearing-Bearing Intersections and Distance-Distance Intersections.
Multiple measurement types: Data can be inputted using Feet, meters, rods, chains and many other different measurement types. There should be a measure type for any of your real estate measurement needs.
Merge Layer: Layers can be easily merged into a single layer using the Merge Layer Tool.
Calculate a Legal Description's area and perimeter distance.
Easy to use measuring tool. Measure the distance between any two points on the screen.
Automatic labeling: Each line can be automatically labeled with the length and call. End points can be marked for easier recognition. End points can also be labeled with information like the interior/exterior angles and Lat/Long coordinates.
Create custom labels and. Custom labels can be rotated in any direction. Search feature can be used to find which layers contain which labels.
Drawings can include a call
Custom X,Y points. Use custom X,Y points to mark and label unique land features on the legal description plot.
Split a single plot into multiple plots. Split the plot by hand, or choose a starting point and let the plot plotting software find the nearest halves automatically for you.
Create section drawings:
Exporting: Legal Description data can be exported as DXF files, KML Files, CSV files, Shapefiles(.shp) and more.
Importing: Deed Plotting data can be import from many types of DXF files, KML files, CSV files, Shapefiles(.shp), GeoJSON and more.
Call lists can be formatted for importing into Metes and Bounds or exporting from Metes and Bounds with other legal description plotting software such as Net Deed Plotter® by Greenbrier Graphics, LLC.
Real-world X,Y coordinates. Export real-world X,Y coordinates for integration with other mapping software such as GIS software.
Waypoints to metes and bounds calls. Convert a set of waypoints, x/y or Latitude/Longitude based, into a list of metes and bounds calls.
Enter Waypoints and Tracks. Add GPS waypoints and tracks to your legal description plots. Import GPX and KML files. Calculate things like the distance between two waypoints.
Real-world Latitude and Longitude coordinates. Enter the latitude and longitude for a plot's POB and let the legal description plotting software calculate the latitude and longitude for each of the other end points. A plot's POB lat/long can also be set by UTM datum or World Files.
