Whether you have one deed or a hundred, in a "metes and bounds" state or in a Public Domain state, DeedMapper has all sorts of uses! Some examples:
DeedMapper runs on Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7 and 8 (32- and 64-bit).
You use the Deed Entry Form to enter metes and bounds surveys or public domain property descriptions. Plotting of deeds is automatic.
DeedMapper is designed for historical research so it handles surveys that have straight lines. And those old deeds can have incomplete direction and distance information, obscure compass rose directions such as north by west 1/4 point west, and meander lines along a creek. Not to mention those old oak trees and piles of stones that mark the property corners. These are no problem for DeedMapper! Many different measurement units and survey methods are supported. Partial plots are created when deed descriptions are incomplete. And parcels can even be rotated to compensate for magnetic compass errors.
Once you've entered the survey information for your parcels, drag them and drop them onto our optional background maps of your research area, or use your own background map image, e.g. a USGS topographic map image. (Read more about background maps here.)
You can easily control parcel appearance, including line color and thickness, font size and color, and fill color.
The program contains a number of features to aid in deed analysis.
Once your project is done you can output your work in a variety of ways.
We think DeedMapper is straightforward to learn. Video tutorials of the program’s capabilities are included, and sample projects (metes and bounds and public domain) are also included. The Help menu is well organized around the common tasks of deed mapping.
Upgrade to version 4.2
