A Brief History Of Maryland Land Surveying
Land surveying in Maryland enjoys a rich and interesting history, dating back to 1632, when King Charles I granted the Charter of Maryland to the Calverts with full authority to assign the lands to settlers. Later, due to incorrect maps and confusing legal descriptions, the original royal charters of Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Maryland overlapped, creating numerous disputes as to boundaries. The Mason-Dixon Line was surveyed between 1763 and 1767 to resolve these border disputes, forming part of the borders of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and present-day West Virginia, roughly separating the Northern and Southern halves of the United States. This line would later become important during slavery debates to delineate the boundary between free states and slave states, and has remained relatively unchanged through several clarifying surveys.
Maryland Land Surveying Today
With today’s modern surveying methods far surpassing older methods as to accuracy, coupled with ongoing population growth in the State of Maryland, land surveyors continue to play a critical role in the state’s development, from clarifying existing land boundaries to subdividing and consolidating parcels of land. Land surveyors in Maryland must meet strict qualifications for licensure to ensure their surveys are in compliance with local and state regulations. Point to Point is duly licensed in Maryland to perform both commercial and residential land surveys that meet and exceed state standards.
