Mapping & Surveying

ALTA/ ACSM Land Surveys

Fulcrum engineers adhere to the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ACSM) standards which were adopted by the American Land Title Association (ALTA). Each Fulcrum Land Survey includes:

  • Examining the title commitments
  • Searching municipal and county records for possible encumbrances
  • Providing information on easements benefitting or encumbering a property.
  • Detailing possible encroachments across the boundary or easement.
  • Identifying whether there is access to a public road.
  • Defining zoning setbacks.
  • Listing flood zones that may impact the property.
  • Providing evidence of any use by other parties.
  • Showing water boundaries within the property.
  • Noting any evidence of cemeteries.
Listing the names of the owners of the adjoining property.

Topographic Mapping

Topographic maps are used for geographic planning, large-scale architecture, earth sciences and many other geographic disciplines, mining and other earth-based endeavours, civil engineering and recreational uses such as hiking and orienteering. Fulcrum can provide clients topographic maps of a property site that depict in detail ground relief (landforms and terrain), drainage (lakes and rivers), forest cover, administrative areas, populated areas, transportation routes and facilities (including roads and railways), and other man-made features.

Wellhead Surveying

Fulcrum engineers can provide site surveying on parcels of land which may be candidates for the exploration and production of oil and gas. By working with Fulcrum, exploration companies come equipped with improved technology to find and extract oil and gas from properties.

Land Survey and Mapping

To successfully manage land, owners need to understand what they have. Surveying and mapping are two interrelated ways to describe property in a way that helps owners make management decisions. Land surveying is the process of gathering and analyzing information about the physical earth and provides owners information regarding features of a property- boundaries, roads, structures, watercourses, and other physical characteristics of the land. Mapping, on the other hand, provides owners characteristics of a property- hydrology, vegetation, geologic features, elevations, and human-made structures information. Fulcrum works with clients to provide them the land surveys and maps they need to make decision on how to best utilize their properties.

Residential Property Surveys

Residential property owners often seek property surveys when they are looking at installing pools, performing renovation, adding fences, improving vegetation, or getting flood insurance exemptions. Fulcrum engineers can support residential property owners with all their survey needs.

High Definition Surveys

When requested, Fulcrum is able to provide the latest technology to provide its clients with high definition surveys. High-definition surveying (HDS) is a non-intrusive means of rapidly collecting detailed and accurate as-built data. A 3D laser scanner emits a narrow, eye-safe laser beam that sweeps across a target object, such as a property or a building, gathering millions of closely spaced measurements (points with a unique X, Y, and Z, values) in a matter of minutes. These scanned measurements are collected and grouped into a comprehensive point cloud database that can be easily manipulated on a standard desktop or laptop computer. This data can be viewed, navigated, and analyzed much like a 3D model created in a traditional CAD system.
