Rule 4733-38-04 | Measurement specifications.


All measurements shall be made in accordance with the following specifications:

(A) The professional surveyor shall keep his equipment in such repair and adjustment as to conform to the provisions of paragraph (A) of rule 4733-37-04 of the Administrative Code.

(B) Every measurement of distance shall be made either directly or indirectly in such a manner that the linear error in the reported distance shall not exceed:

(1) Two-tenths of a foot for major improvements [see paragraph (G) of rule 4733-38-05 of the Administrative Code].

(2) One-half of a foot for major improvement location [see paragraph (J) of rule 4733-38-05 of the Administrative Code].

When a case arises wherein a greater linear error will not create ambiguity of locations (i.e., tracts where the improvements are located substantial distances from boundaries), then the professional surveyor may use a greater linear error, provided the tolerance is clearly indicated on the survey plat (e.g., 500 feet +/- 5 feet).
