Description

Metes is an app that creates a map of a property with its property lines. You enter the survey data from a property description into the app and Metes produces a map that shows the property with the boundary lines drawn in red. Metes is a great tool for the real estate agent who wants to show a property to a prospect, or an easy way for a surveyor to get a quick snapshot of an existing survey to aid in locating pins or other markers. Homeowners can use it also to draw a map showing their property lines. The app stores the data you enter, and each property and its map can then be retrieved immediately.

Only property descriptions that have a metes and bounds survey can be used in this app. In this type of survey, there is a starting point, and then the surveyor makes a series of measurements of angles and distances to trace the outline of the property, ultimately returning to the starting point. These descriptions have language like the following that describe a series of straight line or curved transitions from point to point:

“Beginning at a point on the northerly corner of the property, then along a line North 65 degrees 34 minutes 22 seconds West for a distance of 123 feet to a pin; then South 33 Degrees 33 minutes 7 seconds for 145.6 feet; …”

Property descriptions that rely solely upon the Public Land Survey System of meridians, townships and sections cannot be mapped with Metes; also, many properties in subdivisions cannot be mapped since they rely upon the subdivision plat map rather than a metes and bounds survey.

*

IMPORTANT: Check the property descriptions that you wish to map before buying this app to ensure they are of the metes and bounds type.

To use Metes, you need a copy of the property description. To start, you enter the address and name of a new property. Then you are shown a map where you need to place a pin (by touching the iPhone or iPod Touch screen) on the starting point of the survey. Then you will enter in the data for each step of the survey, called a transition. Once the data is in, the map is created. Each property is saved in a directory and can be pulled up for future use without re-entering the data.

Once you have done it a couple of times, it only takes about 5 minutes to enter a new property.

:
Works ok, I suppose. Would be nice to move the start pin with your touch. Also, loaded this app in iPad and picture is too small. Lose the border and allow a snapshot to be sent via email, etc. But, it works.
