Types of Land Surveys

Several (but not all) types of Land Surveys:

ALTA Survey or Extended Title Insurance Coverage Survey
A survey made for the purpose of supplying a title company and lender with survey and location data necessary for the issuing of title and/or mortgage insurance. A detailed map is required to be done to “ALTA” specifications. The acronym "ALTA" stands for American Land Title Association. Specifications of this type of Survey include (but are not limited to) determining property lines, location of improvements, identifying all easements, utilities and other conditions affecting the property.
Boundary Survey
A boundary survey establishes the true property corners and property lines of a parcel of land. Boundary surveys are typically performed to obtain building permits, to resolve property disputes, and for erecting fences.
Construction Survey
Survey measurements made prior to or while construction is in progress to control elevation, horizontal position, dimensions, and configuration.

Control Survey
A Land Survey providing precise locations of horizontal and vertical positions of points for use in boundary determination, mapping for aerial photographs, construction staking, or other needs.
Elevation or Floodplain Survey
Elevation surveys determine the elevation of various sections of a building or land. Typically these are used to aid in building plans and to determine if a property is in a flood zone.
Lot Split Survey
Are needed when you may need to divide an existing parcel of land into two or more parcels.
Lot Survey, (aka Site Plan Survey or Plot Plan Survey)
A combination of boundary and topographic surveys for preparation of a site plan to be used for designing improvements or developments, and obtaining government building permits.
Mortgage Location Survey:
These surveys are typically used by title companies and mortgage lenders to obtain proof that the major improvements on the property are free of encroachments onto neighboring properties or into recorded easements.
Plot Plan Survey, (aka Site Plan Survey or Lot Survey)
A combination of boundary and topographic surveys for preparation of a site plan to be used for designing improvements or developments, and obtaining government building permits.
Quantity Surveys
Obtains measurements of quantities, usually in conjunction with a construction process, earthwork, etc.
Record or As-Built Survey
A survey performed to obtain horizontal and or vertical dimensional data so that a constructed facility may be delineated, i.e. foundation survey, or as-built of improvements. Specifically, an As-Built Survey is a survey to physically locate structures and improvements on a parcel of land, generally for mortgage purposes.
