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. Calls can also be easily drawn using the call drawing tool.

Background Pictures: Background pictures can be set to scale with your plot drawing. Background picture scale settings can be automatically set using World Files.

Multiple Layers: Layers allow you to have multiple deeds on a single drawing. Layers can be free floating or locked to a common starting point.

Perform 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 Metes and Bounds 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 land plotting software finish it for you. Have a bad or missing call? Enter a question mark (?) for the call and let the software find the missing call for you. Close drawings using Bearing-Bearing Intersections and Distance-Distance Intersections.

Multiple measurement types: Data can be entered using feet, meters, rods, chains, varas and many other measurement types.
