A Land Survey Plat is a survey to establish the boundaries of a parcel using its legal description which involves finding or setting property corners. A map or plat is then drafted from the field work to provide a representation of the parcel surveyed and an explanation of how the property corners were established.

Land Survey Plats are typically performed to obtain building permits, to resolve property disputes, and for building fences. Easements may also be located, if requested, with this type of survey.
