Are all of your surveys delivered either in a map or report of survey format?   I was asked to "mark the property corners" that define the shared boundary with the client's neighbor. Of course, she needs this to install a fence to keep things civil between her and her neighbor.   I usually provide a map or report of survey with each project. This is my first fence survey.  Is this any different?

I always provide a map showing what I did, and the type of equipment and controls that I used to do it. I feel this is the minimum and leaves the client with something tangible that they can refer to. Just this morning I took a call from a client who I did a survey for in 1999, and another who got my name off their neighbor's map.

I like it!  Our maps are free advertisement.

The NCBELS has a survey report guideline.

While this may or may not be required, documenting and recording how you established the corners (or determined the corners you found are legit) may preempt problems with neighbors.

A report or map is required with your seal and signature on any work that is final. I require payment prior to sending the report or map out. 

 

Be careful with "fence survey". A boundary is a boundary and there really is no "fence survey" classification in the board rules. Below is a snippit from a report i did a while back. The owner to the left had a company build him a fence without a survey. There were metal tposts at each end that the company used to build the fence. The metal tposts were just there to point to the corner a foot away. I was working for the owner on the right. The guy on the left came out and i figured my stakes would be gone about 5 minutes after I left, so I added some pics to the report.

Adam is on point. A boundary survey is a boundary survey and must comply with your state code requirements. If you are in a recording state, then recording a certified plat is required.  Regardless, why would you not?

How did you get 889 epochs in 222.200 seconds?

That is a bit strange. At 4 per second 222 seconds between first and last would get you 888 intervals or 889 readings. The extra 0.2 seconds could be the time between when he pressed Start and it actually recorded a reading, a random number between 0 and 0.25 ?

I thought one epoch takes one second to complete. Does that depend on what type or model of equipment is being used?

5 Hz should give 1112 epochs.

It's only collecting and reporting fixed epochs. There were a few seconds that it slipped to a float solution.

No such thing as a fence survey in North Carolina, we have to do at a minimum a Report of Survey.
