Metes and Bounds Land Description
A tract of land in the Northwest quarter of the Northwest quarter of Section 30, Township 1 South, Range 66 West of the 6th Principal Meridian, County of Adams, State of Colorado described as follows:
Left, Right, Compound & Reverse Curves
Enter in the Central Angle in the Degree/Minute/Second fields.
Enter the Radius in the Length/Radius field.
The radius is the radius of the curve. The central angle is the angle swept.
In a legal description of a curve there should also be a "length" or "distance" of a curve.
These lengths should be qualified as either "arc length" or the "chord length".
The arc lengths and chord lengths are not used to compute the curve, they are included as a "math" double check.
As an additional double check, many descriptions also include words like "Southwesterly" or "Northerly" to describe the general direction of a curve.
