How to rotate a deed plot

You can create a deed plot by entering the distance and bearing information into the Deed Calls – Area – Perimeter app, the Farming GPS GIS app, or the Forester GPS GIS app.

Sometimes the deed plot does not align with the background map, and you would like to be able to re-orient the deed plot.

The ability to re-orient the deed plot is provided by PC-GIS X. You can save the deed calls in a .dcf file and open it in PC-GIS X. In PC-GIS X you can specify an orientation angle for rotating the deed plot. PC-GIS X will let you display the deed plot on top of a geo-referenced raster image (*.tif, *.jpg, *.sid, *.ecw). You could also have a Feature created based on the deed plot and export the Feature in .kml format to display on Google Earth.

You could use PC-GIS X to create a deed plot then save it in .dcf format for use with your Deed Calls – Area – Perimeter, Farming GPS GIS, or Forester GPS GIS.

Edited 7/23/13: You can rotate a deed plot using the newly released Deed Calls Pro app for the iPad.

Edited 5/19/14: You can rotate a deed plot using Deed Calls & Stakeout or the updated version 1.1.1 of the Deed Calls – Area – Perimeter app.

    Most users need to be able to do the rotate while on site! Not carry it back to the office and rotate. Defeats the purpose of being “Mobile”.
