September 01, 2010 -- Pipelines, transportation center lines, fiber optic cables, and many, many more items need to be mapped as a polyline in a GIS. Now, using the TractBuilder Metes and Bounds Tool users are able to create polyline features based on legal descriptions and/or latitude and longitude (XY) coordinates. This new feature really opens up the tools for use by the utilities, transportation, and midstream energy sectors. Users are also able to extract the metes and bounds of existing line features!
“We had so many users saying that they wished they could draw lines as easily as they could polygons, we had to add this as a feature. At TractBuilder, our goal in not to sell a good product that does a good job, but instead, the best product that does the best job. I look forward to seeing and hearing about how this has enhanced people’s workflows even more than the original tools.” - Kyle Souza, Sales Manager, TractBuilder
