More About This Textbook


With approximately 40% more material, this revised, updated edition of the classic bestseller remains the industry standard for providing practitioners with a thorough, practical understanding of the laws of boundaries and the evidence needed to make efficient, accurate boundary determinations. In covering the technical, legal, and administrative aspects of the task, Evidence and Procedures for Boundary Location now includes changes in content and organization that reflect new developments in the field, clarify important points, and make the book easier to use than ever before. The new Third Edition divides previous coverage of evidence into three distinct chapters - general concepts, field evidence, and verbal evidence - underscoring the important distinction between field evidence and oral or written evidence.
