A legal description is much more than just the measurements it contains. To understand a legal description, it is necessary to understand the true role of measurements in surveying and how courts resolve ambiguities in deeds. The measurements in a description allows someone to plot the geometry but may not properly describe the property as the evidence found on a field survey may uncover. Understanding which calls are directive and which are locative is critical to understanding the true function of a description.
