Upon submitting a map for review, a screen check of the map is performed to verify that the map is in compliance with the Orange County Board of Supervisor's Ordinance 3984. The Ordinance requires that the boundary is tied to two OCS GPS Horizontal Control points. Further, the Ordinance requires that the map's Basis of Bearings be derived from the inverse between the two points.
The map submittal package is reviewed to ensure that necessary reference materials have been submitted (i.e. title reports, traverse closures, underlying recorded maps, tie notes, deeds, official records).
Maps are logged and checked by the date received. Once the map checker has examined the map for boundary determination, drafting standards, and mathematical correctness, the map checker will write a correction letter and submit it for review by a Licensed Land Surveyor, prior to it being returned to the submitter for review and necessary corrections.
