Boundary Surveys  Subdivision Mapping

This item of service includes residential boundary surveys as well as larger boundary surveys and subdivisions.


In order to create legal lots or parcels in Tennessee, subdivision mapping is required. The owner or developer needs to be awaware of the requirements in their area for minimum lot size and other restrictions above the mandated state laws. In all cases subdivisions with 5 or more parcels will require a tentative map and a final map. Subdivisions with fewer than 5 parcels will require a parcel map based on a boundary survey or in some cases from record data. Hinds Surveying, Inc. can provide tentative maps and final maps for large subdivisions and can provide parcel map services for smaller subdivisions. Our field to finish services will enable developers or owners contemplating a subdivision of their property to comply with local agency procedures in a timely and efficient manner.

Topographic Surveys

Topographic surveys are instrumental in achieving successful civil engineering, architectural and structural design elements for proposed improvements. Precise and accurate representations of existing structures and other existing site elements are critical to successful design and construction. Drainage of surface flow water across existing sites needs to be shown in detail sufficient enough to make determinations of runoff patterns and volume calculations. In any proposed development the first step to successful design is to have a complete and accurate topographic survey.


Hinds Surveying, Inc., provides superior topographic mapping of any site. High precision field techniques and automated office drafting enable maps to be prepared within tight time frames in an economical manner.
