I still use Acad for site site plans 

 

still can’t get Softplan surveyor coordinates to work very well, I can’t trust Softplan when the tolerances are tight.

 

Lately I’ve be getting clients to get a BCLS to do the site plans, they end up pinning the foundation anyways so their ready to go.

 

also local building Dept requires elevations at the lot corners, building heights and inverts for the services, all info I don’t get during the plan stage.

The top left corner doesn't meet. When I form a polygon it messes up the top coordinates. I missed that on the site plan that I posted. I think it was 5:30 this morning.


What is the difference between using the coordinates in the brackets and the coordinates in the parentheses ?

Problem with this survey is the front coordinance is written wrong on the paper, by the surveyors, change the north to south and leaving the rest makes it work.

 

question, when the survey shows 2 coordinances for the same line, and usually one is marked M and the other R, what does that signify, and which is best to use for duplicating

So turns out the problem with the first survey, had a , probably misprint, by the survey company and the front or bottom line on the survey, should have been "S" not the "N" north as shown, and it all fixes and fits.

 

Question:  like on the right property of Jonathan's survey, it has the 2  different coordinances and lengths. One in brackets and the other in parenthesis.     In florida I always see them marked "M" and "R"

 

What do these mean. and which should be used when drawing the site.?
