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.

Create section drawings:
Easy to use measuring tool. Estimate 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. Custom labels can be rotated in any direction. Search feature can be used to find which layers contain which labels.
include a call list:
Split a single plot into multiple plots. Split the plot by hand, or choose a starting point and let the Metes and Bounds software find the nearest halves automatically for you.

Call lists can be formatted for importing into Metes and Bounds or exporting from Metes and Bounds with other deed 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 drawings. Import GPX and KML files. Make calculations 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 metes and bounds 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.
