Will appreciate comments from users of DeedMapper regarding the
>From old deeds I key (fill in the blanks) the bearing (N32E, etc) and
distance (100 poles and the software converts it to feet, etc) from
call-to-call into an inexpensive surveyor software program. The program
allows me to print out excellent plats. I give each plat a name and save them.
Using a hand-held GPS, I have taken field readings along old boundary
lines, corners, etc. I key these locations into TOPO! from National
Then, I sit down at the counter with a USGS print-out at 1":1,000', a
calculator, etc. and MANUALLY plot the boundary lines onto the topo.
End of story, except that I'm not a happy camper.
What I'd like is some software which would allow me to input the data from
deeds with the ease of my current software, print a plat and save
it. Repeat the process for as many deeds as I wish. I'd also like the
ability to join plats with ease, print and save the joined plats.
DeedMapper can do this
Then call up the map (or someone else's USGS map).
DeedMapper can use a DeedMapper map or USGS map as a background for a
project on which you can place plots
Next, I'd like to call up one of the saved plats and place it in
proper location on the map. Then go back to the file for a neighboring
plat and place it on the map beside the first. I'd then like to print out
the map with the plats, as well as save it for future use whenever I find
another neighboring plat. Anytime I call up that specifically named map,
I'd like it to have the plats (plural) still on it in their proper place
and ready to accept additional neighboring plats.
DeedMapper can do this
Finally, I'd like the ability to subdivide a plat either while
on the map; or remove the single plat from the map and subdivide it, then
place the "pieces" back onto the map in their proper place.
DeedMapper can do
Is DeedMapper for me? Must I also purchase maps from DeedMapper to
accomplish my objective or may I use the maps (software of USGS maps) I
DeedMapper is for you. You can either use DeedMapper maps or downloaded
USGS maps to place plots on a map
My apologies for the length of this post, but my greatest of thanks to
those who will share ideas.
I have used DeedMapper for years and have thousands of plots in scores of
projects. You will be amazed at the versatility of this software. Its
capabilities is only limited by the imagination of the user.
