Uses of a Land Survey


Surveys are a critical part of real estate for all parties involved.

There are different types and uses of surveys. One of those uses is for conveying property to divide an estate, to settle a boundary location, to show improvements, to locate natural features, or to subdivide the land. One of those types of surveys is an engineering survey such as a design survey or construction survey. This video reviews several different types of surveys from boundary to aerial to control surveys.
