What are Survey Markers?

When a surveyor is doing a job and they need to label major points on a land's surface, he or she will do so with the use of survey markers. For example, the surveyor may place marks at the north west and south east corners of a piece of land to physically represent the boundaries. When providing legal descriptions for the land surveyed (which could be the land's dimensions in words and more), the document may reference the markers that have been placed by the surveyor. This shows just how important survey markers truly are as a property's legal description is needed for real estate documents that may include deeds, mortgages, and more.


Different Types of Markers

There are plenty of different survey markers that come in various forms and sizes. Surveyors use less permanent materials such as wood stakes, wood lath, etc. In the past surveyors would even use local landmarks and stones. Anything that can be identified as a physical marker would be used. The surveyor places the marker into the ground and secures it when finished. They surveyor may tie ribbons on the stakes or even on the trees and use other temporary markers while doing field work. 


What Is Flagging?

Flagging is used in the field of surveying to mark grade levels, utility lines, wooden survey stakes and wooden survey lath, and other boundary markers. You'll notice surveyors frequently will attach the flagging to wooden stakes or wooden lath and then write on it like we previously discussed. Flagging is used to create very bright, highly visible markings in wide variations of applications. Flagging is made with weather resistant materials so it can withstand the rigorous conditions while out on the field. Surveyors are not the only professionals to use flagging. Construction workers, nurseries and even hospitals and emergency medicals utilize flagging.


SiteSurv offers surveying markers, whiskers, stake flags and flagging tape in many different colors for high visibility marking of important details in the field or at a construction site.
