I am trying to highlight an area of concern that relates every day to us as land surveyors across these United States. My intent with this article is to turn the scope to the subject of discrepancies and related mapping processes.
In my previous column, in the August issue, we went into a detailed discussion on how to know that you have rendered a well-reasoned opinion on the location of the property lines that are the subject of your survey — a litmus test, if you will.
As you may recall, one of the key elements of the test is the application of the appropriate boundary law principles.
I have been doing a lot of thinking here recently about the many problems facing the land surveying profession. If you haven’t noticed, most of my columns over the past several years have focused on some of these problems, and I have also brought possible solutions to the table.
