I have also been looking into this problem for the Mac.  GIS software by
the Environmental Info services (GIS by EIS in any case) should be able to
do this.  This GIS system is expensive.  The other idea is using AutoCAd
or one of the Mac Cad programs to do this.  CAD systems aren't
intrinsically set up to do this and it would require fiddling with inputs
if the data already exists.  

The last idea is to ask someone about GPS systems.  My forester friend
walks a woodlot with his GPS (global positioning system) and then punches
in way stations about which he writes notes, coming home he down loads the
Lat/long data for the way stations and has a map of the days work.

good luck and please post anything you find that is more helpful.
