It was the best of times, it was the wettest of times… Much like a famous novel by Charles Dickens, the motif of this story hinges on two important, simultaneous events. For just over a year, Continental Mapping worked simultaneously on multiple large boundary survey projects — miles and miles of boundary survey. This story covers two of the largest surveys in the company’s book of work, one at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, and the other at Fort Polk, Louisiana. A tale of two boundary surveys, if you will.
Re-establishing property boundaries is no small task: completing just one mile of boundary survey involves several factors including legal research and historical record review; coordinating with local, state, and federal agencies and adjacent property owners; establishing monuments; and dealing with wildlife, weather, and other natural perils.
