Overview

The up-to-date, new edition of the classic reference

For over two decades, Evidence and Procedures for Boundary Location has been the cornerstone volume for surveying practitioners. In its Fourth Edition, this book upholds its superior presentation of boundary laws and evidence, and now introduces significantly revised content covering current laws, legal procedures and practices, courtroom responsibilities, use of GPS and GIS data, and waterway boundaries. This current edition prepares surveyors for the new legal, technical, and administrative aspects of surveying.

The first section of this book covers resurveys or retracements of former surveys based on land records. It deals with the methods used for locating corners, lines, and parcels of these surveys, while detailing all types of evidence, including maps and documents; measurements; monuments and trees; and digital data. The increasing importance of an area's history to surveyors is also a featured topic. The later chapters examine the creation of new parcels of land from a legal standpoint. This edition also includes an in-depth examination of:

  • Professional liability
  • How to report evidence and use it in court
  • Court conduct, both as a defendant and as an expert witness
  • The origins of boundary evidence

Whether used in conjunction with Brown's Boundary Control and Legal Principles, Fourth Edition, or on its own, Evidence and Procedures for Boundary Location, Fourth Edition, continues to stand as the fundamental reference for licensed practicing surveyors, lawyers, property owners, civil engineers, and students in surveying courses in two- and four-year programs. Its practical applications have also made it a widely used study guide for land surveyor examinations.
