This project investigates the concerns that some surveying professionals have in the surveying profession about the approach some cadastral surveyors are taking to boundary reinstatement, in particular identification surveys.
The aim of this project is to analyse identification surveys in relation to the reinstated boundaries and how the surveyor has fixed the boundaries based on the original survey marks and occupation. From this a quality control form or guidelines will be designed.
The research approach involved gathering a number of identification surveys, completing a radial search over each parcel and acquire all required survey plans to compare and analyse each identification survey. From this it could then determine the strength and quality of each identification survey based on the hierarchy of evidence.
The initial results show that just over half of the plans that were compared and analysed were of an appropriate survey standard quality, the other half fell into the average and poor standards.
The guidelines produced are going to make the quality of identification surveys better and more consistent
