A record of survey must be a map legibly drawn in waterproof ink on tracing cloth or produced by the use of other materials of a permanent nature generally used for that purpose in the engineering profession. The size of each sheet must be 24 by 32 inches. A marginal line must be drawn completely around each sheet, leaving an entirely blank margin of 1 inch at the top, bottom and right edges, and 2 inches at the left edge along the 24-inch dimension.


A record of survey must show:


All monuments found, set, reset or replaced, describing their kind, size and location and giving other data relating thereto.


Bearing or witness monuments, the basis of bearings, bearing and length of lines and the scale of the map.


The name and legal description of the tract in which the survey is located and any ties to adjoining tracts.


The tie to the control network maintained by the National Geodetic Survey of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, if points of the network are established in the area in which the survey is made.


A memorandum of oaths, if any.


The signature and validated stamp of the surveyor who performed the survey.


A certificate prepared by the surveyor indicating:


The person or entity for whom the survey was performed;


The general vicinity of the property being surveyed;


The date the survey was completed;


Whether monuments were found or set and, if so, their character and location as shown; and


Any other pertinent information.


Any other data necessary for the interpretation of the various items and locations of the points, lines and areas shown.


If the land surveyed is described in terms of area, the record of the survey must show the area of the land surveyed in the following manner:


In acres, calculated to the nearest one-hundredth of an acre, if the area is 2 acres or more; or


In square feet, if the area is less than 2 acres.


As used in this section, “control network” means a system of coordinates that defines latitude, longitude, height, scale, gravity and orientation throughout the United States.
