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.”

DIMCO, Inc.

Topographic Surveying

DIMCO has completed over 200 topographic surveys using RTKDifferential GPS (real-time kinematic) during the last three years.  These topographic surveys include large land areas, site topography surveys for design of land improvements and as-built surveys.  Our Team has ten RTK GPS positioning systems available for use on this type of work.  We accomplish these projects utilizing backpacks, survey rod mounts, ATV mounts and truck mounted DGPS units.  DIMCO is currently using this equipment to map over 320 miles of river levees for the Memphis District COE.  Some of our federal clients for these services include:Vicksburg District COE     New Orleans District COE     Memphis District COE     U.S.A.E.R.D.C.

​Each of these projects required us to establish, set, and maintain both horizontal and vertical control.  We have worked in numerous horizontal and vertical datums, and are 100% in compliance with the Corps of Engineers standards and procedures for establishing benchmarks, TBM’s and other control points.  We have completed projects for establishing MS River levee control monumentation, levee right-of-way surveys, elevation/movement data for water control structures and horizontal/vertical control for revetment sinking and grading operations.
