SURV307 Cadastral Surveying 2

Further development of the concepts of cadastral boundary definition in New Zealand, together with the calculation and presentation of the associated datasets. The cadastral survey dataset requirements for various types of land tenure, and an introduction to limited title surveys.

Students will be introduced to a range of cadastral datasets relevant to specific legislation and land tenure. Instruction will be given in the methodology of preforming cadastral surveys such that students can conduct a straightforward land transfer survey in Landonline. Students will also be given instruction in the use of GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) in cadastral surveys and learn how to conduct limited as to parcels surveys. Students will gain problem-solving skills in the New Zealand cadastral context.

This paper logically follows on from SURV 207 Cadastral Surveying 1, but concentrates on the definition skills required by the licensed cadastral surveyor and the presentation of datasets to Land Information NZ. It provides the practical application in cadastral surveys that support the varieties of land tenure introduced in SURV 206 and 306. It also forms a practical link with SURV 305 Statutory Planning in terms of the application of Territorial Authority consents related to cadastral surveys.
