Sorting out Public Land Survey System (PLSS) land descriptions can be confusing at the least and sometimes, just plain overwhelming. A property description of: "the E 1/2 of the S 1/2 of the W 1/2 of the S 1/2 of section numbered 12 township 15, range 14 E, 1st meridian of the Ohio river survey" will give even the best surveyor a moment of pause.
Tracing out property descriptions can ease the confusion. this can also allow for location comparison to other properties.
