  2. Construction Layout Survey: A survey of the measurements made, prior to or while construction is in progress, to control elevation, horizontal position and dimensions, and configuration. (example: staking out a house, building, driveway, basement, etc)
  3. Record Survey or As-Built Survey: A survey performed to obtain horizontal and vertical dimensional (as required) data so that the constructed improvements may be located and delineated.( example: A site plan showing all improvements on the property "as built" currently)

  7. Right-of-Way and Easement Survey: A survey for the purpose of obtaining specific rights into property for public or private use. (example: Utility Easement( electric, sewer, water), Ingress-Egress Easements(driveways), etc.)
