Topographic | Architectural Survey
In general, these maps provide the lay of the land with a proper boundary to other professionals to begin the design process. Topographic Surveys are typically for Civil Engineers while Architectural Surveys are for Architects. Architectural Surveys usually show more detail. There are a multitude of variances within the surveys to make them into planimetric, aerial, site plans, etc.
Boundary Survey | Location Map
On average, these surveys are being mixed up. They provided two completely different services. A Boundary Survey will place physical markers in the ground where you would have to make a string line between points to determine your boundary location. A Location Map will show you the area in question in regards to the lot lines with no physical markers set in the ground. These services can be combined.
Overall, these maps are used to subdivide your land or convert apartments into condominiums. The maps will create a Tract or Parcel Map. In the planning process you will need a tentative or preliminary map, which we can provide. We do not process the application. We provide the maps needed for the application process.
Easements & Land Descriptions
There will be times that a project will need to create a new easement, may it be for utility purposes or ingress | egress. We provide Land Descriptions and Exhibits needed for the creation of the easement. We do not process the easement. In addition, we can also review the existing easements on your property and locate them if possible.
If your project does not fall into any of the categories, please request a proposal (free). Let’s find out if we can be of service to you.
