Using Net Deed Plotter to Create a Map
The image on our homepage shows the easy steps of obtaining a map, area, closure, and more using Net Deed Plotter.
The first step is obtaining a description. It could be the legal description in a deed or from another source. For this demonstration we used the example metes & bounds description shown below. We will now show you how easy it was to use that description to draw the corresponding map and to get important data. After you read this description, proceed to the steps that follow.
The image below shows Net Deed Plotter after the deed calls from the description have been typed into the deed call editor, but the map has not been drawn. (For clarity, the entries in to the deed call editor, as shown in the image below, are list here. n43.15e 351.85, curve left radius 305.74 delta 46.45, n3.30w 83.94, s58.0615e 449.18, s26.5520w 607.21, and n63.3830w 474.16)
The image below shows the Curve Data Entry Form that was used to easily enter the curve that was included in the description. (For clarity, the entries into the curve editor, as shown in the image below, are: L, 305.74, 46.45.) This curve only needed three entries. Some or all of the remaining fields in the curve editor may be needed generally for curves.
All the steps needed have been completed. We are now ready to draw the map and get Area, Closure, much more. The image below shows the map. We selected one of the available colors and hatching options before drawing the map. When you scroll to the bottom of the map, you will see acreage and other useful information.
Our Getting Started Tutorial, Manual and Help topics provide more information concerning the general entry of deed calls, including curves. In general, our Help topics and the manual discusses the entry of deed calls, and they provide much more information concerning the general use of Net Deed Plotter.
