This is my first posting so I am not sure if my query is in the correct place!I am a student and we have an assignment to develop a subdivision plan over a 2.5ha site (5.5 acres).I am capable to do this manually with drafting board and pencil (real old technology!) but was wondering if I can download some free software that can allow me to design a suitable subdivision.

Hi Peter: What about if you sidle into a land surveyor's office in your town, explain your situation and ask if they can suggest a program. Never know, they may offer their facilities and expertise in return for some fieldwork or something. You'll get to do you project, hopefully, with some mentoring, and you'll build a relationship for possible future employment.
