How are tax maps made?

Property deeds contain a paragraph called a legal description, which is the text that describes the boundary of the property. The legal description usually contains courses known as metes and bounds, or bearings and distances. The bearings and distances are plotted to produce an outline of the property. The work of making maps is done on the computer.
