A current title commitment is required before an ALTA Survey can be completed. The surveyor will refer to the title commitment for the legal description of the property and for the legal description of any encumbrances (exceptions). Areas of ownership, improvements, and encumbrances will be shown graphically. If the survey discovers any encroachments, they should be shown graphically, and a note indicating the nature of the encroachment may also be added.The certification language of the ALTA Survey should include the names of the affected parties, including as appropriate the buyer, seller, title company, and lender. The surveyor must work in close association with the title insurance company, as the surveyor and the title company are relying on each other's work to show the matters affecting the ownership of the land and improvements in a comprehensive manner.An ALTA land survey has especially stringent requirements as developed by a joint effort of the American Land Title Association and the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping. The ALTA standards are a nationwide uniform set of standards. Sometimes referred to as the "Cadillac of surveys". The survey is specifically designed to satisfy the needs of lenders, corporations and title companies when dealing with valuable commercial properties.”

                    Hydrographic Surveying

During the past 23 years, DIMCO has gained extensive experience in DGPS hydrographic surveying. Some of the rivers on which we have worked include the Mississippi River (from La Crosse, Wisconsin to the Gulf of Mexico), Red River, Quachita River, Colorado River, Columbia River, Savannah River, San Bernard River, Sabine Neches River, Tombigbee River, Illinois River, Ohio River, Allegheny river, Monongahela River, Yazoo River, Missouri River, Savannah River, Big Black River, White river, East Pearl River, West Pearl River, Arkansas River, Matagorda River and the Gulf Intercoastal Waterway. 

During this time, we have completed more than 3,000 DGPS automated hydrographic surveys of bays, rivers and harbors, with more than 250 of these projects completed in the last two years. We have utilized single beam fathometers, multi-beam fathometers, magnetometers, side scan sonar and sub-bottom profilers in these endeavors.

Dredging (Before, during & after conditions, volume calculations)
