    Metes and bounds software suggestions

    Does anyone know of any freeware to check closure for metes and bounds legal descriptions?

    I don't use it very often, so I would prefer something free and downloadable.

    Thanks.

    I'd like to bump this up and ask the same question. I've heard of free ware that lets you put the calls and dimensions in and come out with a polygon. Can't find such a thing, though.

    Ahh.....sure.......

    Just use ESRI ArcMap, Arc Editor or ArcInfo......I think even the basic version of ArcMap has had that function for at least 10 years now....

    True, not a cheap way to figure out boundary lines

    I wonder if it really works.....
