Finding iron markers

“I just purchased a home, and I have the plat and pretty much all the information I need to find the iron markers for my property line. But I am having trouble finding them. I know where the two front posts are. I was wondering if your app would help me go from the front of my property to the backs markers. And which app I should use.”

If all you need is to find the other iron markers, the Deed Calls and Stakeout app will do.

The Deed Calls functionality will let you get a GPS fix for the first point at the front of your property. It will let you enter the deed calls from your property description to draw a simple deed plot. Then you can select that deed plot as the target for the Line Stakeout function. The app will help you stay on the property line while walking. This should make it easier for you to find the iron stakes that are on the property line.

Please keep in mind that the GPS receiver on the iPhone is not that accurate. This means that in some cases you might need to search in a 500 – 1000 sq ft area for an iron stake when you are in the vicinity of that stake. You could use a consumer-grade GPS receiver such as the Dual XGPS-150A or a Bad Elf GPS with our app to narrow that area down to about 30 – 100 sq ft.
