what we do

Boundary & Cadastral Surveying

Following in the footsteps of the original surveyors

Determining and defining land ownership and boundaries is necessary prior to the approval of land and resource transactions or development. Surveying boundaries requires skills in records research, analytical thinking, knowledge of history and law, and applying the importance of physical evidence gathered in the field. Parametrix surveyors accurately determine property line locations and perform large scale cadastral survey retracement for federal agencies. We are experienced at performing ALTA (American Land Title Association) surveys.

Parametrix surveyors completed marking and posting of 5 miles of section line on Amabilis Mountain near I-90. The survey included the recovery and perpetuation of 11 PLSS corners, as well as blazing and posting of the National Forest Property Boundary, which involved setting inter-visible posts with signs and blazing trees along the property line. The terrain was steep and mountainous at high elevations along the east side of the Cascade Mountains. Section control was completed with the use of RTK GPS and conventional survey control.
