Trace a mud map using decimal feet as the unit

There are times when there is a need to create a GardenCAD drawing from a mud map. The process is straightforward - scan the hand drawn map (plan) making sure some accurate dimensions are marked on the plan. Use the distance command to compare actual distance with measured distance and then scale the drawing using an appropriate scale factor.
