This 2 hour interactive online course presents ONE interesting land boundary case that is particularly instructional as to the proper application of the principles of boundary location for LOT AND BLOCK parcels. It introduces many of the principles of boundary surveying in a systemmatic fashion.
The problem statement will suggest alternate approaches, principles, and solutions. You must solve the case according to what you think is the proper application of survey principle. You will then compare your solution with DAVE GIBSON''S 'best practices' solution which incorporates the correct application of boundary location principles. Defense for the 'best practices' solution will be given for consideration and further learning by the attendee.
If you love to discuss tough boundary location situations, then you will love this case and learn something new. You will also learn other viewpoints for your consideration. The beginner can benefit from the instruction they give as much as the experienced practitioner.
This course is a portion of the longer 6 hour course titled 'Dave Gibson''s All Star Lot and Block Boundary Cases' also offered on RedVector.com.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end.
