landmark

In surveying, a permanent feature on the land, used as a reference point. If it is necessary to remove a landmark for development or other purposes, the best practice would be to contact the local government engineer or mapping office and ask that a witness monument be set in the place of the former landmark. (Some states require this by law.)
