I think this is what you are looking for, and I'd say they are very good. I have most
of Buckingham and
Cumberland Counties in VA, and was able to combine various grids even in to a neighboring
These are topo maps from USGS, modified for the purpose of Deed Mapper. It is important
to have the topo
with the watercourses, as that is frequently how you will site the property. If you go to
and find one of your
locations, look at
the topo map, you will get a pretty good idea what is there. Not all of the watercourses
are labeled, so
you will have to use the above link to find the property location, or look at another map
to compare and
go back to DM to find the probable place.
You *can* import your own, but I've never been too successful with that.
Well worth the cost, I think.

You may find, as I did, that many of your properties are already charted out, sometimes
more than once.
Saves mucho time.
By the way -- I wasn't sure of your original question, or would have answered it
earlier -- but isn't it
fun to get a conversation going?

Ed, thank you for the webpage. Now I would like to know if anyone has used these maps and
if they have
found them to be of assistance and do what I described, and that is....
I understand there is some type of map, (a topographical map I think) that once Deed
Mapper had drawn out
the lines of the property, that can then be placed on a map. Then you can go to the
property and do the same thing.
