Publisher Comments:

The up-to-date new edition of the classic 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 Sixth Edition upholds the same superior presentation of boundary laws and evidence as its predecessors, while providing new case law and exhibits, expanded coverage on the use of forensic investigative techniques in uncovering original evidence, and updated developments in surveying technology that impact the use of data as evidence.

This Sixth Edition fully details 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. It concludes with examination of the creation of new parcels of land from a legal standpoint. This edition also includes new and expanded examinations of:

  • Using historical knowledge 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, Sixth Edition or on its own, Evidence and Procedures for Boundary Location, Sixth 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.

Book News Annotation:

Consultants Robillard and Wilson update again their textbook and reference on the legal aspects of surveying, an area rarely covered in either surveying or law courses. It can be used alone or in conjunction with another textbook in a course, or as a reference for practicing surveyors. They do not explain how to survey, but what to do with a completed survey, and what clients expect from a survey. Among the topics are words as evidence, calculations and measurements as evidence, recording and preserving evidence, original surveys and related platting laws, guarantees of title and location, professional liability, and the surveyor in court.

Professional surveyors and many civil engineers must understand the laws of boundaries and the evidence necessary for efficient and accurate boundary determination. This new edition of the preeminent text/reference on the subject is brought completely up to date, with new material on the use of technology in surveying and its legal ramifications, the use of forensic investigative techniques in the discovery of obscured evidence, new case law examples throughout, and new exhibits help illustrate the concepts presented.
