ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey
ALTA/NSPS (American Land Title Association/National Society of Professional Surveyors) Land Title Surveys are the most comprehensive and detailed. These surveys cover all aspects of a boundary or lot survey with improvement location and identification of any evidence of possession or use that might adversely affect the property.

Topographic Survey
These graphic representations of physical features of the land, both natural and man-made, are generally used as a planning and design tool prior to the construction of site improvements. Topographic surveys are done in conjunction with a lot or boundary survey.

Construction Staking
Construction staking provides horizontal and vertical definition of buildings, roads, storm and wastewater lines, water lines, site grading, walls, and parking areas.  Construction staking is done for the layout and control of new improvements based on plans prepared by design professionals.

Lot Survey
Usually requested by banks, realtors, and title companies, lot surveys provide assurance to the lender and buyer that the property being purchased is what has been represented by the seller. These types of surveys are recommended to lot owners prior to the addition of improvements to their property, such as an out building or fence, or to show encroachments.

Boundary Survey
Boundary Surveys are described either by metes and bounds or as aliquot parts of the United States Public Land Survey System. All corners of the tract will be found, or new monuments established and a survey plat prepared showing which corners were found and which were set.  Depending upon the results of the survey, a new description of the property may be prepared.

Subdivision Survey
A subdivision survey divides existing tracts of land into smaller parcels described as blocks or lots.  Streets, roads, utility easements as well as building setback lines can also be created by this survey.
