The law in most jurisdictions has recognized a qualified surveyor as being entitled to both recognition and responsibility. The surveyors client employs him because the surveyor has skills upon which the client is entitled to rely. Probably, the least of these skills is the surveyors ability as an expert measurer.
Among his skills that are considerably more significant are tracing the footsteps of the original surveyor; his qualifications as an expert witness, his facility at finding the proper location of a boundary, in other words, his knowledge and, most important, his judgment. It is these qualities that are the foundation on which a degree of trust in the surveyor by the public and recognition by courts of law can be built. This course is intended to be useful to surveyors who conduct land boundary surveying. It covers both technical and legal aspects of the land boundary surveys. A multiple-choice quiz is provided at the end of the course, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
