USE OF METRIC SYSTEM IN METES AND BOUNDS SURVEYS

Since the metric system is not yet being used in American metes and bounds surveys, the general theme is speculative, theoretical and an expression of conviction based on historic facts and personal experiences. A brief review of the two existing American land record systems, followed by a discussion of some of the disadvantages of the metes and bounds description, lead to the conclusion that not only the measuring unit must change. Specific recommendations are made.
