Well, so much for the requirement to show plat closure. No computer needed to see that it won't close. How does this even happen?

Be happy it ain't Lot 2. "20' Easement around storm pipe", good luck with that rascal and good luck fitting a house on the remainder. 😎

My drawings are certainly not the best example of what a well drawn map should look like.  But that drawing could use a little TLC from a CADD standards standpoint.

I recently staked a 325 sq.ft. house on a lot that was left over after a r/w taking. That house barely fit in the building envelope. Don't tell me I can't fit one on that remainder! Lol

Standards are one thing, but I see a lot of drawings that could benifit from some training in artistic work. I was never a drafter but my business partner was a fine artist and taught me alot about line weight, font and font size as well as white space and placement of items on the plan.  

I have taken grief for running TraversePC and not a "real" CADD system, but when the reviewing agencies tell me how clear and concise and "readable" the plans are over some other submissions, I am well pleased.

I just noticed the magnetic north arrow.

I've never seen that on a modern day plat.

Even the old plats show it as a rotational reference.

Someone needs my standard "Drafting is language to express information in the same way as speech and writing..." lecture

I've never understood why so many surveyors don't seem to understand that they need to produce a drawing that is comprehensible to non-surveyors. There is a whole field called "Cartography" that few surveyors seem to know about. 

"How to Lie with Maps" should be a requirement for all those who draft maps.
