Charlotte County Survey & Mapping Division is responsible for maintenance of the horizontal and vertical survey control within Charlotte County.
Identification, restoration, and preservation of the controlling corner monuments established during the original cadastral surveys of Florida lands. These corner monuments, commonly known as section corners, are the basis of location for all property boundaries within the County. The location of all property boundaries, acreage, or subdivided parcels are based on the sectional information as defined by the horizontal network.
Establishment and maintenance of the vertical control network known as the height above sea level. Charlotte County is a relatively flat, low-lying coastal area. The elevation monumentation and its perpetuation is of utmost importance to engineers in the planning and maintenance of future and existing drainage facilities. State Law and Administrative Regulations require that all new subdivision plats be reviewed for conformance by a professional surveyor and mapper for compliance. This function is performed by the Survey and Mapping Division.
The Survey & Mapping Division provides assistance to other County departments as needed. For more information, please call the Public Works Engineering Division at 941.575.3632.
