SUBDIVISION OF LAND
Pages 59

Since the functions of land surveyors as defined in licensing laws include land subdivision, and state plat laws usually require that surveyors prepare plats of new subdivisions, a review of land platting and residential subdivision design standards is appropriate subject matter in this manual. The areas of practice most likely to be covered on licensing exams under "land planning- design" are included (see Appendix A). However, the coverage herein undoubtedly goes somewhat deeper into the engineering and planning required for land subdivision than is normally expected for land surveying licensing.
