Agricultural field mapping is an increasingly important way to both monitor your land and manage future activities.
If you’ve ever worked in engineering, construction or land surveying, you might’ve run across a very frustrating problem: the lack of a standardized foot.
There are more modern, standardized systems for land boundaries today, but the metes and bounds system continues to hang on. The challenge is figuring out how to translate the information from old deeds and surveys to the parcel mapping needs of today.
As you soak up the sun and shoot off some fireworks this summer, also be sure you’re taking these precautions to protect your land from wildfire.
ABOUT OUR COMPANY
MapRight was founded by professional cartographer Steve Roberson. While Steve had extensive GIS knowledge and worked with top-of-the line mapping systems, he realized there were a couple of significant problems with the mapping industry. For one, the mapping process was complicated and cumbersome for professionals who didn’t have a lot of GIS knowledge, like real estate brokers and land managers. And in many cases, even professionally done maps looked generic and required viewers to have some understanding of the land.
To create MapRight, Steve stripped traditional GIS mapping systems down to the essentials, then put those essentials into an easy-to-use digital toolbox. From that toolbox, novice and professional mappers alike can create impressive maps and map templates for a fraction of the cost and a fraction of the time. MapRight’s tools and layers are designed to create maps that are beautiful, easy to read and ready to be shared with anybody. The application requires virtually no formal training and is supported by a team of experienced mappers out of Dallas, Texas.
