Pin Cushioning

NY CE: 1.0 LS/PE


The focus of this webinar will be the occurrence of multiple monuments occupying the same property corner, commonly called the pin cushion effect. The attendee will be introduced to a different perspective on how to recognize and analyze this seemingly everyday occurrence. The lecture will be focused on actual survey retracements that have been subjected to being pin cushioned. The lecture will expose the attendee to a method of establishing each monument's pedigree and then applying that period of measurement precisions to the final boundary line determination.

Seminar Goals and Objectives

  1. Define the pincushion
  2. Describe the impact of establishing multiple monuments on a property corner, aka creating a pincushion
  3. Describe the procedure for multiple monument analysis
