Boundary Surveys

A boundary survey is necessary to establish the boundaries of a parcel of land using its legal description. This involves traversing to calculated corners, collecting information on found monumentation and setting or restoring monuments or markers at the corners of the parcel. Monuments can come in many forms: rebar, iron rods, pipes, collars, aluminum caps or plastic caps. Once the information has been analyzed, a map or plat is then drafted from the field data that represents the parcel surveyed.
