Use Deed Calls function to locate corner pins
August 3, 2015 2 Comments
“I have an acreage of a little over 2 acres. It has been surveyed but I have only been able to locate one corner pin, the point of beginning of the legal description. The acreage is rectangular with four sides and only four calls. I have input the four calls. Using GPS, can I use this to walk off the perimeter and locate the other three corner pins by starting at the corner pin which is the point of beginning? If so, how?”
The Create Deed Calls functionality is provided by the Deed Calls – Area – perimeter, Deed Calls & Stakeout, Farming GPS GIS (II/III), Forester GPS GIS (II/III) and iCMTGIS III.
With any of the above-mentioned apps, you could stand at the point of beginning then move the deed plot to align with the actual point of beginning. You can do so by tapping the Pick GPS icon on the Feature Info page. Of course, the accuracy of the point recorded this way will depend on the accuracy of your GPS receiver.
Now that the deed plot is placed in the correct location, you could view your position as indicated by the GPS marker (with GPS turned on) and walk to the other corners on the deed plot to look for the pins. Some of our apps also provide the Point Stakeout function, which could help guide you to each target node.
