Land Survey Components


Research
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.

Reconnaissance
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.

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, fences).

Computer Analysis / Conclusion
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.
