Cadastral Surveying

Hazel Digital Media Admin - Sunday, July 13, 2014

Cadastral surveying is one of the oldest practices in the world. It has helped to define our nation, been a staple of our society's development, and as such, is one of the cornerstones of our business. These types of surveys benefit both the state and the individual. They show where private lands end and public lands begin. Furthermore, cadastral surveys have proved fundamental in resolving law disputes between neighbors and landowners.

When we say that this method of land delineation has been around for a long time, we mean it: there's been evidence of surveys and documents of this nature reaching all the way back to ancient Rome! However, today's modern cadastral surveys have their roots in the European Renaissance. This system was eventually brought over to the colonies, and has since been refined through time and technology.

These surveys, documents, and maps are ultimately based on law, in an effort to uphold previously established territories. Through precise measurements and scientific methods, a cadastre will usually contain details of the ownership, the tenure, the dimensions, the value, and of course, the location: we are sometimes able to provide GPS coordinates for exact precision.

If necessary, we can also use the surveying process to create a cadastral map as well. This is a document that shows specific boundary and ownership lines, represented in visual form, rather than with written words. A lot of our maps will even include specific details, such as district names, certificate of title numbers, position of existing structures, adjacent street names, or more. Our cadastral maps cohesively contain all of the information you will need.

If you're thinking of buying a piece of land, it's imperative that you know precisely what you're getting. From the other perspective, if you're trying to sell land, you'll want to be fully informed on what you can and cannot give away before you start taking bids.

Cadastral surveys ultimately deal with ownership of land. Here at Surveying Consultants, we have years of experience in aiding all enterprises, both public and private, in boundary definition and property mapping.

If you're interested in learning more about your property, the exact dimensions of a certain piece of land, or have any questions at all about surveying, please call or contact us today.
