The up-to-date new edition of the classic reference
Since Evidence and Procedures for Boundary Location was first published more than four decades ago, this landmark resource has been a vital reference for surveying practitioners. This thoroughly revised Sixth Edition upholds the same superior presentation of boundary laws and evidence as its predecessors, while providing new case law and exhibits, expanded coverage on the use of forensic investigative techniques in uncovering original evidence, and updated developments in surveying technology that impact the use of data as evidence.
This Sixth Edition fully details resurveys and 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. It concludes with examination of the creation of new parcels of land from a legal standpoint. This edition also includes new and expanded examinations of:
- Using historical knowledge as evidence
- 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
