From the Back Cover:

The up-to-date, new edition of the cornerstone reference

Since Evidence and Procedures for Boundary Location was first published more than four decades ago, this landmark resource has been a vital reference for surveying practitioners. This thoroughly revised Fifth Edition upholds the same superior presentation of boundary laws and evidence as its predecessors, while providing new case law and exhibits, more material on negligence and liability, additional coverage on the use of technology in surveying, and new insights into the use of measurements as evidence.

The first section of this book covers resurveys and retracements of former surveys based on land records. It deals with the methods used for locating corners, lines, and parcels of these surveys, while detailing all types of evidence, including maps and documents; measurements; monuments and trees; and digital data. The increasing importance of an area's history to surveyors is also a featured topic. The later chapters examine the creation of new parcels of land from a legal standpoint. This edition also includes new and expanded examinations of:

  • Technology as evidence
  • Professional liability
  • How to report evidence and use it in court
  • Court conduct, both as a defendant and as an expert witness
  • The origins of boundary evidence

Whether used in conjunction with Brown's Boundary Control and Legal Principles, Fifth Edition or on its own, Evidence and Procedures for Boundary Location, Fifth Edition continues to stand as the fundamental reference for licensed practicing surveyors, lawyers, property owners, civil engineers, and students in surveying courses in two- and four-year programs. Its practical applications have also made it a widely used study guide for land surveyor examinations.
