Survey Markers and Monumentation


Providing quality hydrographic data on dredging, navigation, and flood control projects requires careful planning and evaluation of all phases of the process.

SKU: PDH302 Categories: ,


Stable monuments are required for both horizontal and vertical control. Monuments and their stability are integral parts of the accuracy of each survey project. Inaccurate survey control monumentation can contribute to costly errors in all phases of project design and development. This course establishes criteria and presents guidance on monumentation installation and documentation for all types of surveys required during the various stages of civil and military projects. This course is intended to be a guide; however, when the standard Corps of Engineers monuments are used, they shall be selected and constructed as defined in this course/manual. This material applies to all Corps of Engineers field operating activities (from U.S. Army Corps of Engineers).

Learning Objectives:

  • Development of a survey monumentation comprehensive plan
  • Site selection
  • Horizontal and vertical control
  • Documentation
