Can I use GPS Coordinates to find my property lines?
The first thing to note is that your average consumer GPS (phone/trail) is only roughly 20 feet accurate under ideal conditions (no tree cover, clear day, minimal wind, good satellite coverage). Secondly property descriptions usually do not include GPS coordinates, they are instead most likely described in relation to Town and Range Section references or by a recorded subdivision plan. Both of which require locating physical monumentation on the ground as a basis of the description. Doing so reliably almost always requires an experienced surveyor.
