Point of Beginning in a description

Posted By David Ingram on 2/10/2010 at 11:40 AM

The quiz question that just showed up in the POB eEdition related to what makes a good Point of Beginning in a description. While the answers have some validity, I (and most other surveyors around here) generally write their descriptions so that you go clockwise around a parcel and try to make the road frontage the first course(s). I don't look for the most solid corner, etc.

And to me the POB is the beginning of the parcel being described. I may reference a tract (section) corner from there, but a remote corner is not the POB.

Just curious about your thoughts.
