Jim,

Your two examples appear unambiguous to me but they describe two
different parcels. You should be able to describe either by going
clockwise or counter clockwise -- it does not matter. You can describe
the first parcel by "walking" the perimeter in a counterclockwise
manner:
Pt
Ln N30W; 90C;
Pt
Ln S30W; 90C;
Pt
Ln E; 90C;
Pt

Subject: [DMU] How to enter a plot

I am working with plat maps for Greenville Co., SC. The plat maps shows
the lengths of the sides of a piece of property and the direction of the
side, but the plat does not show which way is north. The top of the map
is not north. When I am entering the description of the property should
I go clockwise or counter clockwise.

Please check out the following two samples:

1.

!

! Abstracting info.

! Metes and bounds. "Beginning at..."

Pt

Ln W; 90C;

Pt

Ln N30E; 90C;

Pt

Ln S30E; 90C;

End

end

Each sample will produce a triangle with three equal sides, but one will
point up and the other will point down. The only difference is whether
I recorded the data clockwise or counter clockwise. In some cases I can
tell which is correct based on the flow of streams shown on the maps,
but in many cases I can not.

When trying to matches property together it makes a big difference.

Thanks for any help and/or suggestions.
