The process by which land is located with reference to commonly agreed upon landmarks or other points of reference, and then measured out for all of its boundaries, including distances and direction-and-degree of turns. Surveys will typically note any indicia of property lines, even if inaccurate, including fence lines and marks left by prior surveyors. A topographic survey will also include land contours. An as-built survey will include all improvements upon the property with their placement and dimensions.
