Land Survey Components
Research begins with acquiring the property deed of the client (alternately
called the owner or locus). From here, a wealth of information can be
located, such as previous property owners for any number of years in the
past, as well as the owners of neighboring properties. The history of
property structures can be unearthed.
When conducting reconnaissance work, visual surveys are made of the property,
to establish the nature of working conditions, locate any easily identifiable
boundary markers, locate possible encroachments of neighboring structures or
land use onto the locus property, and organize the field survey.
During a field survey, the surveyor recovers the maximum number of property
markers, determines the location of random measurement points, and identifies
and locates structures and planimetric features (driveways, telephone poles,
Computer Analysis /
This begins with an evaluation of the congruency of record data with
measurements obtained by the field survey, in regards to the location of
marks and monuments. A strategy is devised for how best to assimilate any
incongruencies. Measurements are finalized and markers are installed at the
property corners, and the results, if necessary, may be published as a plan.
