Topographic Mapping

All land has specific topographic characteristics which are determined by the available mapping by the United States Geological System (USGS) and through on site instrument survey conducted by a registered land surveyor. The topographic characteristics exhibited on a property can effect the location of structures, drainage facilities and on-site septic systems. Topographic terrain can vary throughout a property from gentile to steep slopes, and severe depressions. Land value can fluctuate in value depending on topographic terrain on a property and are evaluated on a case by case basis.
