GIS Pet Metes and Bounds

With LandWorks GIS suite, you can manage, visualize, analyze and communicate information for any land asset.

GIS Pet Metes and Bounds

A complete mapping solution leveraging industry standard Esri® GIS technology to help you manage your land assets, LandWorks GIS fully integrates with LPM to create a visual representation of your land rights data. LandWorks GIS links the agreement, tract and legal description attributes stored in the LPM database to the corresponding layers in the GIS. As soon as any attribute is updated in LPM, the GIS layers immediately reflect the update, providing you with consistency and transparency across your organization.

      • Define, create and maintain custom spatial layers based on your land data.
      • Automatically summarize overlapping tract interest by ownership and depth using LandWorks’ patented dissection technology.
    • LandWorks GIS Maps – Integrated GIS Web Maps
      • Provide robust, easy-to-use GIS maps through a web browser to many users.
