Legal-Aid is easy-to-use

Creating legal descriptions with Legal-Aid is really quite simple. The boundary information and corner descriptions are all entered from within AutoCAD. In general, the entire process involves only three steps. Legal-Aid can also create legal descriptions from a DXF file.

Data Entry Highlights

  • Boundary information can be entered by selecting any combination of lines, arcs and polylines.
  • Boundary information can be entered using object snaps such as Endpoint or Intersection snaps. All object snap modes are supported.
  • Boundary can be entered by selecting a Civil 3D parcel object (Legal-Aid 2007 and above).
  • Lines or curves extending beyond the parcel boundary do not need to be broken for data entry. (Endpoint and intersection snaps are great for this.)
  • Boundary information is automatically checked for proper order and continuity before processing.
  • Supports curves greater than 180°, non-tangent, compound and reverse curves. No special handling is required.

  • Supports calls along a line.
  • Supports calls along an arc.
  • Supports open and closed traverses.
  • Lot corner descriptions are entered while still in AutoCAD... not later.
  • Lot corner descriptions can be typed in, or picked from text entities in your drawing.
  • Fast processing and response. Legal-Aid only uses 10 lines of AutoLisp code. The rest of the program is fully compiled code.
