2. Assignment Body
Question 1 (150 Marks)
Analyse the search provided on the study desk that has been gathered to perform and identification survey on Lot 1 on RP70052. Dealing with each plan in chronological order analyse the surveys that the plan represents and how it pertains to survey to be done. For each plan ensure that you address:
1. The objective of the survey & date of the survey.
2. Evidence they relied on to establish the existing boundaries.
3. Any differences in dimensions from plans that preceded it.
4. Physical evidence placed by the survey.
5. Any other aspect of the survey that might be worthy of note.
6. Relevance to the proposed survey.
Question 2 (200 Marks)
You have been asked to complete a identification survey of Lot 91 on SP129704. Section 4.3 of Module 4 of the Study Book includes a detailed example of a reinstatement. The attached field notes record the details of your field survey Perform the reinstatement calculations using all the new field data, paying careful attention to the reinstatement arguments and bearing adjustments to field data and plan data. To swing the field data onto the plan azimuth use the marks that reference stations 2 and 7 on SP129704.
The example includes a FINAL SKETCH. The study book has two examples of a final sketch (p100 and p145). A similar plan must be prepared on an A3 sheet at suitable scale and included as the first page of your answer to this question. The plan must include all information the drafter will need to create the final plan (excluding the surveyor’s certificate). As a result it is necessary to use the prescribed abbreviations and drafting standards. However there is no requirement to use the specific font styles. Neat hand drawn plans are quite acceptable. Examination of this plan will enable the examiner to quickly determine if the reinstatement and referencing are correct. Great weight will be placed on the information shown on this plan for assessment purposes.
In addition to the plan you are required to provide a list of the radiations to all corner marks that will need to be placed to complete the survey. These radiations are to be on the field book azimuth.
It is advisable (but not mandatory) that all calculations also be shown. This will enable the examiner to find at what point in the reinstatement calculation errors were made and apportion marks accordingly. If no working is shown, no marks can be allocated for incorrect answers.
Marks will be allocated as follows:
Radiations to pegs & checks (20 Marks)
Plan dimensions (80 Marks)
Corner References (35 Marks)
Reference Marks (35 Marks)
Adjoining information (15 Marks)
Other front sheet information (10 Marks)
Areas (5 Marks)
