To Locate A
Site on a Lot
and Setup Batter Boards 1
The lot surveyor will first
determine the four corners of the lot.
See figure 1. Reference points on the zoning map, such as
special monuments, will help determine the precise
front corners of the lot. At each
of the four corners, 50 mm (2 inch)
by 50 mm (2
inch) wooden stakes called hubs are driven into the ground
the surface. Nails are driven into the
stakes precisely at each corner.
These are called property points or survey points.
