Metes & Bounds and Quartering Tools FREE for Users of Competing Products

TractBuilder is so confident that you will enjoy using their metes & bounds tool and quartering tool that they are willing to give free licenses to anyone using a competing product. The TractBuilder Tools for ArcGIS, which work with ArcView, ArcEditor, and ArcInfo, allow users to create polygons and lines according to legal descriptions, in the most efficient manner possible. Containing several unique features, such as the text-to-polygon auto convert, the TractBuilder Tools for ArcGIS have quickly become a favorite for creating new data.

Kyle Souza, Sales Manager for TractBuilder, explains the impetus behind this announcement, “We believe we have the best tools on the market for creating features from legal descriptions. We only have a few competitors out there, such as the LandWorks Parcel Edit Tools or Tobin GIS Studio; and we want people who are currently using a tool to do this kind of work to know that there is something else out there that does the job easier and faster!”
