Have you used this?
If you click on Help - Sample Projects - Public Domain it will bring up a Public Domain
project. It appears this project is using a DMU supplied map for the area.
By going to Table View and selecting item 2 then clicking on Text View you'll see they
really used Metes & Bounds with each side being 80 poles long which gives the 40 acre
I've never plot public land so I can't tell you how I would do it. This may be
you only choice with small pieces of land.

Michele, I'm not aware of any, but then again, I didn't spend a lot
of time looking. I will put together the steps that I followed and
post it here. It may not mean as much to you since you don't already
have the program, but it will give you some confidence that it can be handled.
