Really bad plat
I have a question for the hive. I am doing a lot survey on a small parcel here in town an the only description I have for the property is being all of lot 4 of the attached plat. The lot 4 i am talking about is on the bottom of the PDF not the pie shaped ones above. For the life of me I can not figure out how to calculate the curve marked 150. It is not the radius and a 150 arc length wont work either. There is not a single radius on any curves on this entire plat. I am down to the point of using the back of the existing sidewalk and calling it a day. Any thoughts?
on the assumption it's a tangent curve it would seem like you could easily calc the curves on either side of it and go from there.
Preliminary plat that was recorded before draftsman completed drawing.
In Block 7 the lots are not numbered.
Once some developers get their hands on a drawing they head straight to the recorder and file it as is and then fire the Surveyor.
As fit it to the rest of the Block and make the measurements work.
I don’t believe it’s a preliminary map, I think you have mentioned your from the Asheville area, we have three subdivisions here that look identical to the map you attached. My previous employer told me that someone from Asheville designed all three of ours in the seventies. If it was “Scott” then I’m relieved we are not the only ones who have to deal with his crappy maps.
The maps we have scale reasonably well so we bring in pdf and find a radius that works with the arc length, and existing monuments if there are any. None of the curves appear to be tangential so I wouldn’t worry about trying to make them.
Unfortunately this plat was recorded in 1925. I run into these quiet often here in Asheville as nobody has updated the plats or deeds in a while.
A Harris the section you are talking about is actually off of the map and is part of another plat.
Thanks everyone. I am still trying to learn some things in CAD and fortunately these kind of problems don't happen that often.
