Surveying or land surveying is the technique, profession and science of accurately determining the terrestrial or three-dimensional position of points and the distances and angles between them. These points are usually on the surface of the Earth, and they are often used to establish land maps and boundaries for ownership or governmental purposes.
ALTA surveys are boundary surveys created pursuant to a set of minimum standards adopted jointly by the American Land Title Association (ALTA) and the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping
To A survey to establish or to re-establish a boundary line of a parcel of land on the ground or to obtain field data for producing a map or plat depicting a boundary line.
A Certificate of Compliance is the tool used by the County to inform title companies, lenders, and the general public that such parcels comply with state and local subdivision laws.
Construction staking, also known as “Construction Layout,” is the process of analyzing and interpreting architectural and civil engineering plans and calculating appropriate offset survey points and elevations.
Easements refer to the right to utilize a section of land without having its ownership rights. Although an easement may have a significant impact on a property’s real-time value, in most cases it is a necessity. The logic behind easements is to permit land access to the authorities for repair of general utilities like water, gas and sewage pipes.
An expert witness can testify their opinion within their expertise, a expert opinion must be based on sufficient facts or data and reliable principles or methods.
The Elevation Certificate is an important administrative tool of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). It is to be used to provide elevation information necessary to ensure compliance with community floodplain management ordinances, to determine the proper insurance premium rate, and to support a request for a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA) or Letter of Map Revision based on fill (LOMR-F).
Land use mapping is the process of identifying an area of land's use. It includes the classification of different types of land as well as the distribution and use of the land geospatially within a region.
A lot line adjustment is the process that is used to change property lines of existing parcels.
Photogrammetric surveys establish targeted, and occasionally non-targeted, photo control on the ground to relate aerial photographs to a project's horizontal and vertical datums.
Plot plans typically refer to the construction of a single structure on a specific plot of land. For instance, you can use a plot plan when you're getting ready to develop a single-family home. Site plans can be used for much larger projects
Hydrographic surveys accurately measure and map underwater features and surfaces using remote sonar equipment. The mapping Is then used to calculate volumes and monitor for erosion.
A slope map is a two-dimensional representation of the gradient of a surface. It shows how steep or gentle a slope is at any given point. Slope maps can be used to identify potential hazards, plan construction projects, and more.
A subdivision survey also know as subdivision platting is the process of splitting a tract of land into smaller parcels. The subdivision survey is completed when an owner desires to split a parcel of land into two or more parcels. The level of detail required will be determined by the governing jurisdiction. When a lot is divided it is imperative that the newly formed lots both meet zoning and setback requirements. The new lots will both need to meet the minimum requirements for road frontage and square footage for their particular zoning district or the plan will be rejected.
A topographic survey locates all surface features of a property, and depicts all natural features and elevations. In essence it is a 3-dimensional map of a 3-dimensional property showing all natural and man-made features and improvements.
