    Default plot plan

    Hi i got a plot plan to redraw in autocad, but something looks off with the bearings. I know bearing usually looks like this S30D57'08"E but the bearings on the plan looks like this N19d36'47" there is not direction at the end of it.

    Unless the line is very close to vertical, you can usually tell which way it leans. One solution is to scan the plat and xref it temporarily. Once you have it scaled correctly, you can check your bearings and distances against it.

    And whoever you got that plat from, tell them to go back to surveyor's school .
