About our property line mapping serviceThe property line mapping service we offer is made possible by first-of-its-kind software developed by Joseph Elfelt, the owner of PropertyLineMaps.com (desktop/laptop) and FindPropertyLines (cell phone/tablet). Joseph is a software developer in the field of online maps. If you would like to see some of the other online map work Joseph is doing then take a look at the MappingSupport project page: https://mappingsupport.com.
Joseph's father taught him to read property legal descriptions while he was still too young to drive. After working as a software developer for Boeing, Joseph returned to his interest in land and worked as a professional real estate investor. During this time he analyzed a vast number of legal descriptions and manually mapped many of them. This background in both software and property legal descriptions enabled Joseph to produce the unique software that this service uses to provide approximate coordinates for your property corners.
The property information that you supply plus our own online research is used by our software to produce the corner coordinates. The online research we do will vary depending on the circumstances. This research may include accessing GIS systems maintained by various government entities. No one piece of information is used alone to determine your coordinates. Instead, our proprietary software advances state-of-the-art by letting us process all this information and supply you with property coordinates that are as accurate as possible without hiring a land surveyor.
But please keep one thing in mind. Joseph is not a land surveyor and the coordinates that you purchase from us and the maps displayed by those coordinates do not constitute a land survey. If what you really need is a survey then our service cannot help you and your only option is to pay the money and hire a licensed surveyor.
