I'll assume you ordered map(s) from Deed Mapper.
1. No, unless you are extremely lucky. That is why you need the map(s) with roads and
waterways. You'll need to move the plat to get it in the right palce. You might even
need to rotate it a bit.
2. Do you mean maps (which you buy and load or copy) or do you mean plats (what you get
when you plot the deed? If you oreded maps that are next to each other they should touch.
If you mean plats, they may or may not touch. If they should touch one or the other of
the deed should mention that the land is bound on one side by (the name of the person) or
one of the lines could be refered to as being the boundry of the other persons.
3. Where did you maps come from? If you ordered maps with waterway overlays from Deed
Mapper they only show the course of the waterway, not the name. I'll assume this was
done to kee down clutter. Compare the map you are plotting on to a Topo Map from another
source (maybe some of the many online maps).
Your questions aren't dumb. We aren't born knowing these things. We learn by
I hope this helps a little.
Hi all - I'm new. Which means I have several questions.
1. When the deed shows up plotted is it where it belongs on the map, or do I
have to move it to that position?
2. If several maps are connected is that how they are supposed to be? I mean
were they actually touching?
3. Why are none of the rivers marked on the map?
I realize these are probably dumb questions, but believe me, I'm totally
I have the maps plotted. That took me awhile. A few dozen mistakes and I
finally got them to look right. Now I want to match them up so I can see who's
next to whom.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
