"Good way to get a response, but I thought this was another " trick " ???. like solve a chord with just the Delta Angle. To many years with a compass I guess!!! and what kind of Boundary Retracement on a phone.  I guess I am lost."

"Just recently I went to a rollout for a Total Station and I had asked that question. Currenty there apps that do just that, but they have an accuracy of 30 foot radius. So if accuracy is what you want you wont get it with an android app. It will…"

"Yea, I can relate to that. I have technically been my own boss for the bulk of the last 40 years. The only exception was a brief interruption due to the big economic recession  of the year 2000+/-  & a divorce. Being self employed…"

"I hope he didn't bid the job thinking it could be done in 4 days. And then 4 weeks later we had trees and topo lines on the map.  I could only imagine how many trees and how steep the property was.  Did you punch him?"

"Everyone has the classic horror story.  I had one manager that decided we could do boundary, trees and topo, on a wooded parcel at the rate of 15 acres a day.  I told him I could get all 60 acres done before lunch tomorrow."

"I feel ya Charlie on the app thing... My insurance agent thinks you only need a cell phone to survey land... I will Google maps credit... it seems to be well within 20 foot accurate... I was amazed to be very far out and had decent cell coverage…"

"John, I'm with Charlie on this one ... apps aren't (yet) the answer to everything. The solution here pivots on GPS accuracy. Any app will be leveraging the GPS inside your phone which will be similar to your handheld GPS but the handheld…"

"I am not planning on producing a boundary survey. It is only for finding monuments and reference trees on the side of a mountain for the AT trail monitor program. My pacing is pretty tight in the flat lands but is quite sloppy hopping over brush on…"
