A boundary survey is a process carried out to determine property lines and define true property corners of a parcel of land described in a deed. It also indicates the extent of any easements or encroachments and may show the limitations imposed on the property by state or local regulations. Easements may include a utility line easement crossing the subject property to a neighboring property or appurtenant like the right to cross another property for access to a public road.
A topographic survey determines the location of natural and man-made features (such as buildings, improvements, fences, land contours, trees, streams, etc.) of the land along with its elevations. This type of survey may be required by a government agency but it is mostly used by engineers and/ or architects for the design of improvements or developments on a site. In other words, a topographic survey or contour survey provides you with the exact figures of the size, height, position of the different changes that have occurred in course of time with regard to their presence of their natural existence. Sometimes, these surveys are also used for the formulation of an optimal plan for drainage, ditches, grading and other features.
An ALTA Survey is a detailed survey prepared in accordance with the standards specified by the American Land Title Association (ALTA) and the American Congress of Surveying and Mapping (ACSM). An ALTA Survey shows the boundaries of the property, the location of improvements on the subject property, including any and all structures, fences, utility lines, roads, etc., along with the location of any/all easements. This is one of the most detailed surveys available.

Lot Line Adjustments:
A lot line adjustment is a process by which the lines of pre-existing legal parcels of land are moved to suit the needs of the adjoining owners. A lot line adjustment can accomplish a few different things such as:
Merge (up to 4 adjoining parcels into a single parcel
Change the boundary among adjoining parcels
reconfigure the shapes of parcels
Layout and grading for commercial construction process including but not limited to: utilities, road improvements, curb and sidewalk, buildings, and parking lots.
Flood Elevation Certificates:
A flood elevation certificate is a form that has to be completed and signed by a licensed surveyor stating the base flood elevation (BFE) as well as the elevations from the property and any buildings on the property. This provides the elevation information necessary to ensure compliance with community floodplain management ordinances, to determine the proper insurance premium rate, or support a request for a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA) or a Letter of Map Amendment based on fill (LOMR-F).
Administrative Land Divisions (Lot Splits):
An administrative land division can be done for many different reasons. In all cases, it requires a surveyor create new property lines that divide a single parcel of land into two or more parcels. There are a lot of considerations which the surveyor must take into account with lot splits—for example, each new lot must comply with zoning requirements for minimum square footage, road frontage and setback standards, also taking into account any easements on the property. Each local jurisdiction has different rules for the level of detail required, and any submitted plans that do not comply with these rules will be rejected. Here at Eagle Land Surveying we have many years of proven experience in providing accurate lot splits for our clients.
Commercial and Residential Developments:
Sub-dividing land is a complex process in which multiple officials must review and approve the plan. Here at Eagle Land Surveying we make it our goal to make this process as quick and painless as possible. We provide all necessary services to help complete the project efficiently and accurately. Every city and county is different in their regulations for subdivisions, we take pride in being educated and up-to-date on all regulations in our area of service.
Idaho Dept. of Lands Disclaimers:
A process where we meet with a representative from the Idaho department of lands to help determine the ordinary high water mark along a navigable body of water and provide descriptions for disclaimers of interest. For more information you can find the link to the Idaho Department of Lands website
For companies that have their own GPS system and are capable of doing their own layout, we provide modeling services in which we will build a model of the project in a Trimble or Topcon format using CAD. We then set the necessary control on the project. This ensures a smooth, accurate layout process.
