Aerial Mapping Ground Control

Aerial Mapping Ground Control entails setting up of ground control for the Aerial Mapping (Photogrammetry/LIDAR) firm and is setup to the specific needs of the Aerial Mapping contractor.

Agricultural Project Districts (APD)

Preparation and filing of APD submittal. The agricultural project district (APD) development is intended to provide a flexible and creative planning approach for developments within the agricultural zoning districts, in lieu of specific land use designations. It will allow for flexibility in the location of specific types of agricultural uses and variations in lot sizes. Under this planning approach, opportunities will be provided for a mix of small scale agricultural activities and associated residential uses, as well as larger agricultural projects. This district will also provide a vehicle to satisfy the demand for a rural lifestyle on marginal agricultural land, while decreasing the pressure to develop important agricultural land for this purpose.

ALTA/ACSM Certification

An ALTA/ACSM Certification, or ALTA Survey, is a boundary survey prepared to a set of minimum standards adopted by American Land Title Association (ALTA) and American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ACSM). An ALTA Survey shows improvements, easements, rights of way, and other elements impacting the ownership of land. Typically, an ALTA Survey is prepared for commercial properties, because it provides the title company with extra information required to insure the title to the land and improvements to the high degree that a commercial development may require. In addition to the minimum standards set forth by ALTA/ACSM, a table of optional elements, Table A, is included. A review of Table A is helpful in determining the scope of our services.

AS-BUILT Surveys

An AS-BUILT survey is a survey conducted during or after a construction project to verify that the work done was completed to the specifications of the plot plan or site plan.

Boundary Staking (C-41)

This staking is done to fulfill the requirements listed in section C-41 of the DROA form. This staking can also be ordered by a land owner to identify the boundaries of a property. The Surveyor will locate the corners of the property, which are usually identified by half-inch iron pipes, and will typically place flagged, wooden lathes near the pipes as the pipes by themselves may be difficult to see. A Survey Map is not provided with this type of survey

Boundary Surveys (C-42) Encroachment & Setback

This survey is done to fulfill the requirements listed in section C-42 of the DROA form. This survey can also be ordered by a land owner to identify the boundaries of a property and any encroachments along the property lines and setbacks. The Surveyor will locate the corners of the property, which are usually identified by half-inch iron pipes, and will typically place flagged, wooden lathes near the pipes as the pipes by themselves may be difficult to see. In addition to staking the property, the surveyor will indicate if any improvements along the boundary are encroaching either onto the subject property, onto neighboring property or into the setbacks. A survey map showing these encroachments, if any, will be issued in this boundary survey.
