    Property line question

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for some sort of app that I can use to connect 2 points. Basically, I want to drop 2 "pins" at 2 property markers and have a line drawn on google earth view. It doesn't need to be super accurate, whatever the accuracy of the phone is would be fine. I tried messing around with google maps on my Iphone but couldn't find anything.

    The line is about 1500'.

    I had a guy out here that I was talking to about using a forestry mulcher on our land. He had an app called "LandGlide" that gave him a pretty good idea where the property lines were. I'm not quite sure that's what you're looking for though.

    It sounds like you want to superimpose a property line on GoogleMaps, presumably so you can see from the aerial view if someone is encroaching on the line. You might want to see if your county has a GIS system available to you. Our County Auditor has their GIS mapping system tied to the property tax system. You can see the aerial views with the lines already imposed on them. Pretty cool stuff... BUT.... While this can give you a pretty good idea of where things sit on the property, it's no substitute for having a good surveyor mark the line. On our county site, it looked like the neighbor was expanding his driveway over our property line. After the surveyors came out, turns out that he was a good 20' away.

    I'm sure that ColonyPark can weigh in with better info.

    Also, if my assumption of what you're trying to accomplish is incorrect, please let us know.

    Our county has this also but they are quick to tell you the are reference lines only to be used as a guide.

    Measure Distance feature on Google Maps

    There's a pop up menu on Google Maps - click with the right mouse button - the last item is "Measure Distance". Right click on the starting point and select "Measure Distance". Then click on the segment endpoint and the distance will be displayed towards the bottom of the window. Additional clicks will result in new segments, each with the length displayed and the total length displayed. If the last click is on the origin, the enclosed area will also be calculated and displayed.

    Click image for larger version.

    Zooming in will give more accuracy.

    I think this also works on mobile devices, but you might have to use the website instead of the app.

    I use this link below from a PC all the time. You can draw a simple point-to-point line or outline an area.

    If the ground is semi flat....I used a huge role of hay string for my 1400' line.

    lots of tree trimming and 500' elevation change...had to hang weights in places.

    Thank you all for the great feedback! I never thought of the measuring idea on google maps, I did see that on my phone. I will give that a try. I may also download google Pro.

    Again, I'm just wanting a rough idea were I am on one side of my property. It's all woods and is difficult to tell were the line even approx is.

    The GIS for my area doesn't support google earth view for some reason, not sure why. A message pops up stating this when I click on the icon.

    Thank you all again you've given me some great ideas.

    One more idea...

    Use theduke's string idea, attach bright ribbons every few yards, then find a friend with a drone to fly over and take photos/video.

    I use Google Earth to see what's near houses my wife finds on Zillow. All kidding aside, Google Earth is worth having on your PC.
    I have more ideas than ambition.
