The beaten path is the safe path

The beaten path is the safe path

The Latin maxim Via Trita, Via Tuta means the beaten path is the safe path. “The truth is, the moment we desert the old rules of interpretation, we are off of soundings, and deliver over the titles to lands to interminable doubts.”
Cleaveland v. Smith; 2 Story 278; 5 Fed. Cas. 1003 (Maine, 1842).

Effective and successful boundary retracement demands various aspects of mathematical analyses.  Error isolation and reconciliation are keys to discovering the footsteps leading to corner location.  Understanding and appreciating the equipment and techniques used by the original surveyor along with their shortcomings are essential to achieving that goal.
 

This program will discuss the following aspects:

 
Error analysis and isolation types
Traverse adjustment vs. no adjustment
Local attraction
Magnetic vs. true bearings
Types of distance measuring device and their shortcomings.

In addition, there will be a field exercise dependent on the use of GPS as a modern retracement tool.  Participants will be responsible for their own device and will work in small groups.

This presentation surpasses the normal research procedures and examines those unorthodox and strange elements of title and evidence beyond the description.  It attempts to provide clues and procedures for satisfying the requirements of “inquiry notice” required by law: “anything that would cause a reasonable person to inquire”. The seminar review signs and clues, both obvious and subtle, and suggests procedures for investigating them to determine their significance.
