    Map Checking

    The Land Development & Map Check section provides land surveying review of land development activities, including map checking of parcel maps, tract maps, and records of survey.

    Corner Records

    A corner, as defined by the Californian Professional Land Surveyors Act, refers to a critical point on the Earth's surface that serves as a reference for defining property boundaries and land divisions. It represents the intersection of two or more boundary lines and is established through precise surveying techniques and measurements. Corners are fundamental in accurately demarcating property lines, establishing easements, and determining land ownership. They play a vital role in the legal and spatial framework of land use and development, providing a basis for resolving disputes and ensuring the integrity of property rights. Anytime roads or properties are built, paved, or graded land survey monuments get destroyed. A corner record is way to perpetuate these marks and cut down on the costs to perform land surveys.

    Monument Inspections

    A monument inspection is a crucial process often associated with the release of improvement bonds. In the context of property development or infrastructure projects, improvement bonds are typically posted as a form of financial guarantee to ensure that certain improvements, such as roads, utilities, or survey monuments, are completed satisfactorily. Before the bonds can be released, a monument inspection is conducted to verify the proper placement and condition of survey monuments or markers that were installed during the construction process. These monuments serve as permanent reference points for accurately identifying property boundaries and surveying future developments. The inspection involves a thorough examination of the monuments to ensure they are intact, undisturbed, and align with the survey records and legal requirements. By conducting a comprehensive monument inspection, stakeholders can ascertain the accuracy and reliability of the survey work, providing assurance that the necessary improvements have been made as per the agreed-upon specifications, ultimately facilitating the release of improvement bonds. Sometimes surveyors retire or move to different jobs and when this happens a Certificate of Correction Monument Substitution will be required along with the monument inspection case.
