Certified Corner Record Form sketch
What makes a good (or not so good) sketch on a Certified Corner Record? The Instruction Manual for the Certified Corner Record form only states the following:
• Make a neat sketch showing the relative positions of the monument and reference points.
• Give dimensions, with topographic features, names and widths of streets (if known)
• North arrow
• Show location of monuments at this corner which conflict with your position. Note if they are shown on previously filed Certified Corner Records.
• To the extent possible, show the location of the supporting evidence in the sketch
Should they be drawn to scale?
Should distances be horizontal or slope?
Should distances to the nearest GLO corners also be shown?
