Practical Boundary Surveying Book Review:

This complete guide to boundary surveying provides landowners, land surveyors and students with the necessary foundation to understand boundary surveying techniques and the common legal issues that govern boundary establishment. Far from a simple engineering function, boundary establishment is often a difficult and delicate matter, with real monetary and legal ramifications if not accomplished accurately. This book helps readers to understand why such challenges exist and what remedies may be available. Using only simple and logically explained mathematics, the principles and practice of boundary surveying are demystified for those without prior experience and the focused coverage of pivotal issues such as easements and setting lot corners will aid even licensed practitioners in untangling thorny cases. Practical advice on using both basic and advanced instruments is included, alongside clear explanations of legal regulations that will impact any surveyor’s work. For those who desire a more in-depth treatment of the mathematical aspects of boundary surveying, the Appendix includes the underlying theory and many examples of typical calculations performed by boundary surveyors.

Land Surveying Mathematics Simplified Book Review:

This is a book explaining the mathematics used by land surveyors during the course of boundary surveys. It provides a hands-on approach to commonly used equations and concepts covering angles, bearings, trigonometry, coordinate geometry and traverse closure. Many examples are given to help the reader understand the concepts. The presentation in this book is intended to be as simplified as possible and the author has attempted to provide clearly worded explanations of each subject. Although a background in algebra, geometry, trigonometry and statistics would be helpful, none of these is strictly necessary in order for the reader to work through these materials. This book is intended to be a companion book to ""Land Surveying Simplified"", written by this author, which is available on Lulu as and eBook or soft cover.

The Curt Brown Chronicles Book Review:

Curtis M. Brown has long been recognized as the worlds foremost authorities on land surveying. His works and textbooks are found in virtually every Land Surveyors library across the country. His legal principles have been adopted by a large number of courts across the United States and his books are standard reference works for practicing Land Surveyors. The Curt Brown Chronicles presents a collection of papers, lectures, and articles prepared by Mr. Brown in the course of developing the principles and authorities for his textbooks and classes. While serving as a member of the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ACSM), Mr. Brown was a regular contributor to The Surveyor and Law and the Comment and Discussion columns as well as other important articles. In this capacity, Mr. Brown would respond to inquiries from Land Surveyors across the United States on a variety of subjects related to land surveying and the application of relevant law. His opinions continue to have considerable influence on the professional land surveying community and the legal community. Many of the papers contained in The Curt Brown Chronicles have not been released since their original publication in the 1950s and 1960s. Nevertheless, the subjects are still germane and in many ways, Curts focus on many subjects was prescient. Mr. Browns articles on Land Surveyors Liability to Unwritten Rights, Land Surveyors Ethics, and The Professional Status of Land Surveyors, are still considered relevant and are held in as high a regard as is Justice Thomas Cooleys (Chief Justice, Supreme Court of Michigan, 1864-1885) famous article, The Judicial Functions of Surveyors. The Curt Brown Chronicles has been compiled with the consent and permission of ACSM and the Brown family

Land Tenure, Boundary Surveys, and Cadastral Systems Book Review:

Land is important to all aspects of human life and has a key role in the economic well-being of society therefore, land tenure, land ownership, and real property law is a critical part of any developed nation. Together, the processes of how land parcels are held; how they are defined, measured, and described to allow economic transactions; how they are marked to allow their use and defense; and how they are legally protected have allowed for the orderly possession and use of land. In doing so, these processes have also provided the basis for the advanced economy of most developed nations. Very often, these processes—land tenure, boundary surveying, and cadastral systems—are considered separately. They are very much interrelated, and none of these processes may be completely understood without an understanding of the others. Land Tenure, Boundary Surveys, and Cadastral Systems provides an introduction to land tenure, cadastral systems, and boundary surveying, including an understanding of the interrelationship of these areas and their role in land tenure and real property law. This is especially true considering the advent of georeferenced cadastral maps reflecting the location of land parcels relative to many other components of the physical and legal infrastructure. Although intended as a basic text for college-level surveying courses, this book should also be of significant value to cadastral mappers, real property attorneys, land title professionals, and others involved with land transactions.

Georgia Land Surveying History and Law Book Review:

Georgia Land Surveying History and Law is the first definitive history and analysis of Georgia’s land system and the laws that govern it. The book’s opening section tells the story of the surveyor’s role in transforming Georgia from a frontier to a bounded, populated, and productive colony and state. Paced by anecdotes of surveyors’ wilderness experiences, the narrative traces the evolution of Georgia’s land subdivision system, beginning with the original, and ultimately impractical, scheme of land granting and rectangular land subdivision under the Trustees of the Georgia Colony. The volume then covers the more flexible but easily abused headright procedure, and the subsequent lottery and succession of systematic, rectangular surveys under which most of the state was laid out and granted in the early nineteenth century. Finally, in lay terms supported by meticulous citation of authority, the volume discusses the legal aspects of land surveying, including the interests that make up land ownership, the transfer of real property, the interpretation of property descriptions, the location of boundaries, riparian and littoral rights, and other topics. The book examines every point concerning boundaries found in any Georgia case or statute. Based solidly on primary sources and the author’s fifteen years of experience in land surveying and title abstracting, Georgia Land Surveying History and Law is an exhaustively researched and scholarly reference that will be useful to surveyors, title attorneys, title abstractors, real estate professionals, geographers, cartographers, historians, and genealogists.

Cadastre: Principles and Practice Book Review:

Explaining the principles of cadastral law and interpretation in practice, this is the first publication of its kind in over 45 years. It as a comprehensive text for aspiring and practicing professional land surveyors, those in the real property business, and those involved in land administration. Written for the South African practice environment, it will also be of interest to an international audience. The authors’ approach is progressive with the intent to inspire development to meet the needs of our society for secure land tenure for all. A broad range of topics are included: historical roots of tenure in the ancient world, the early development of the cadastre in South Africa, and development of the land surveying profession and professionalism. This provides context to the discussion on land law, tenure and rights; on legal institutions, on land administration, as well as government policies and reform imperatives. Defining property boundaries of rights in space is a particular challenge of the cadastral land surveyor. The chapters on the definition of beacons and boundaries cover a broad range of onshore and offshore application environments. They span the extent of ownership and limited real rights within the sovereign area of the Republic of South Africa. These environments include the air, the land surface and subterrestrial; coastal waters, and the sea bed. Particular attention is paid to complex river and coastal property boundaries. Case law is a key driver for changes in legislation and is also highly directive in terms of practice. The final chapter of the book is dedicated to a themed exploration of case law relating to beacons, boundaries, evidence, rights and restrictions. Cadastre: Principles and Practice will be an important addition to your professional bookshelf.

Boundary Retracement Book Review:

The survey and the transference are the distinctive and operative acts in the transmission of real property and, where they differ from each other, one must of necessity control the other. This book addresses the aforementioned concepts by external explanations in order to understand the discrepancies between them. It also helps to avoid expensive and wasteful litigation over boundaries that were previously not in conflict. The text offers an extensive review of the law for boundary retracement and cites numerous case examples.

Subdividing the Land Book Review:

Ideally, every tract of land has a description on paper and a physical survey on the ground. When boundary disputes arise, all parties concerned must quickly learn the vocabulary and processes involved with real estate. Written for anyone dealing in real estate transactions, Subdividing the Land: Metes and Bounds and Rectangular Survey Systems provides this background. It defines key legal terms, examines key concepts of Metes and Bounds, the structure of the U.S. Land Survey System and offers many illustrations and tables that clearly explain the concepts. Each state has its own property laws, but the book's material is generic enough to be applicable across the entire United States and even Canada. Taking into account that local laws may be influenced by many factors, the book also covers the roots of English property laws and the effects of French, Spanish, and Mexican legacies. The author discusses topics such as water law, mining claims, and the Metes and Bounds and Torrens system of property registry. He provides a section of basic legal concepts applicable to land transactions and a glossary of special or semi-technical terms. Unlike most other topics related to surveying, there is no math associated with the topics given; yet the subjects can be complex and tricky. Subdividing the Land is a resource of many interrelated topics, and thus presents a knowledge base for land surveyors and the background for handling many types of land transactions conducted by real estate agents, engineers, architects, and lawyers.
