Here is expanded version of  my little C# program which converts property description in bearing and distance to SVG, which can then be viewed by IE9 or imported into Microsoft Visio:

Program.cs (attached)

New features:

  • endpath command to end a path with stroking
  • closepath command to end a path with stroking and filling
  • p command to store reference points
  • r command to recall reference points
  • Parsing and SVG generation seperated into two classes. We can later add generation of other formats.

Sample input (two properties):
