This is a project to draw real estate maps from legal descriptions called "Metes & Bounds".

This is a test. After I find a good freelancer, there will be 15-25 little projects like this, all within one week.

To do this work, you must be able to read and understand English "Metes & Bounds" and American Real Estate Legal Descriptions, which are used to describe the exact shape and size of USA real estate land parcels.

You must be able to use some AutoCAD or GIS software to enter the "metes & bounds" including complicated curves, and draw maps that you will then send to me.

Attached is a sample of a Real Estate "Metes & bounds" description. It is a little blurry because this is an enlargement of an old land record.

Your job is to look at these complicated coordinates, and then convert the information into a Map, so I can see the size and shape of the area being described.

You may use ArcGIS, AutoCAD, or any other mapping software you want (Informatik etc) so long as it creates the correct result, and so long as you can export and deliver to me a line drawing image, and a vector file that can be imported into AutoCAD.

This is not a simple data entry project. You must understand English and possess mapping software of your own. There will be multiple documents included in this small project, between 10 and 20. The documents will be about as complex as the attached sample.

The TEST is simple - you must use the attached and create the TOP HALF of the first map.

Send me the image as part of your bid. Not the digital vector file, only a picture of the SHAPE of this complicated "Metes & Bounds" area.

If your shape is correct, then I will know that you can do the work.

If you send me a sample, please tell me how long it took you, and what your hourly rate will be. This way I can know what your cost would be relative to other bidders.
