Editors' Review

Surveyors, environmental impact researchers, historical impact researchers, cell-phone tower site locators, and real estate developers--these are just a few of the folks who will find real value in this nicely featured application for plotting maps based on survey or GPS data.

Metes and Bounds launches a large window with a row of icon-buttons along the top, a vertical pane with some data controls on the left side, and a large drawing and editing pane taking up most of the window's real estate. A Drawing Wizard automatically opens at launch to prompt the user for the type of drawing he or she wants to develop. The interface design isn't jazzy or overly colorful, but it's very functional and clearly marked so even novice users will quickly understand how to navigate its features. This app performed very well during our tests, and we were very pleased with the features it offered. Entering latitude and longitude was a snap. We particularly appreciated the robust feature set for creating a variety of plots and the editing functionality for manipulating the completed drawings. We liked how we could devise multiple layers for overlapping plots based on latitudinal and longitudinal data or GPS data.

Metes and Bounds includes a link to a series of online tutorials that are nicely designed and fully informative for any novice users getting up and running with this tool box. Likewise, the Help feature is very thorough. The "Unregistered" watermark on the drawing pane may aggravate some users, but that's a minor quibble. The price should be sweet enough for anyone needing to rely on this sort of tool on a frequent basis.

"Nearly useless teaser for the commercial product"

April 07, 2013  |  By feldsparDave

 |  Version: Metes and Bounds 4.2

Pros

It is easy to use to create a map.

Cons

The free version won't let you save a map or print it. I expect that when the thirty day trial period is over, I will lose any work I've completed.

Summary

How could anyone recommend this? Assuming that a one star review means less than worthless, and should be reserved for software containing viruses or other malware, I award this product two stars.

"Works OK but free version has definite limitations."

April 17, 2011  |  By lfeldstein

 |  Version: Metes and Bounds 3.4

Pros

Clean, relatively straightforward interface.

Cons

Not as intuitive as advertised. Choices don't allow one to create all necessary boundary shapes.

Summary

Perhaps the paid version is more flexible, but since the free one was not full-featured enough to me to map just the metes and bounds of my property, I'm not inclined to send them money in hopes that the paid version allows me to finish the job.

 |  Version: Metes and Bounds 2.2.

I would have to wait till I finished the entire imput to see if the boundaries were in the right direction. Could not adjust as I was going along.
