Is there not an Auto-close in Deed Calls – Grid – Stakeout?

In addition to the Create Deed Calls function, the Deed Calls – Grid – Stakeout app provides the ability to add Points, Lines and Areas to your job map by manual digitization.

Before entering the deed calls, you can specify whether they are for creating a Line Feature or an Area Feature. After entering the deed calls, you can convert the deed plot to a Feature, and an Area type Feature will automatically close.

With an Area Feature created in the job map, you will be able to create grid points over the Area Feature. You will also be able to stake out the boundary of the Area Feature.

Deed Calls – Area – Perimeter app now available

The Deed Calls – Area – Perimeter app is now available at the Apple iTunes store. This is a universal app that will work with iPAD, iPhone and iPod touch.

This app will let you enter angles and distances and display the resultant boundary plot. It will label each line segment with its length and bearing (or azimuth). It will also label the arc segments with the relevant parameters. The Summary screen will display the completed figure, its area, its perimeter, as well as the closure error. If you are unsure about the last line segment, you may choose the Auto-close option and have the figure closed automatically.

If your device is equipped with GPS, you may pick the GPS position as the point of beginning. You may also enter the actual coordinates of the initial node. In these cases, the app can display the deed plot on top of the built-in Map. If you just want to get a quick plot and don’t care about the location of the property, you could start the plot from any random spot.

You can obtain a PDF report containing the map drawing and the deed calls data. You may also save the Deed Calls File (*.dcf) and send it out via email. A friend in need is a friend indeed. The easy-to-use Deed Calls – Area -Perimeter app might just become your friend in “deed”.
