If you're surveying residential lots, and you label the acreage to the nearest hundredth of a square foot, you should have your license suspended until you figure out why those areas are BS.

True, but why is it troubling you today? Expiring minds want to know.

I had opened a CAD file of a 15 lot subdivision and every single one of them had the offending areas.

I forgot to add: "FOUND 3/4" REBAR TAG LS1234, 0.215'N AND 0.547'W OF TRUE NW CORNER"

Property Owner: Yeah but where do I hook the string line for my fence?

Dave: Can't you see the dimension point on the ground right there?

Property Owner:

Dave: Hey, I can't hold your hand all day.

That's even worse.  A good friend of mine works for a federal agency and one of his duties is to review contract surveys.  He absolutely will not accept anything with that nonsense on it.  He got into an argument with a surveyor from Ohio that told him that Ohio statutes required him to do that.

I read a description of a commercial property in Tacoma that carried the distances out to four decimal places. I declined the project.

You declined it because the distances were carried out to the ten-thousandths?

I declined because it is in Tacoma and I am in Kenmore. Very good client but too far from home base for me to be efficient.  I did the research in order to identify someone who might be a better fit for the neighborhood.

How is it possible that a found original lot corner is north and west of anything, wouldn't it be the corner.

You are correct.  @dave-karoly is being sarcastic about hyper-precision.

Commence the thread hijack...

 

Perhaps it isn't an original lot corner.
