One of the oldest established method of surveying property is the metes and bounds system. This system describes the boundaries of properties through metes (distance) and bounds (direction) starting and eventually ending at a point of beginning. However, this normally produces lengthy and complicated descriptions and POB monuments can often be altered. Compare with Rectangular Survey System and Plat of Survey methods. For more information, see the "Surveys and Legal Description" article in the "Real Estate In-Depth" section.
