This is Unit 4, Section 1 of Restoration of Lost Corners by Proportionate
Measurement. A training program developed by the Branch of Cadastral
Survey development of the Bureau of Land Management. In this part
of Unit 4, we should learn the techniques for handling two types
of problems in broken boundary adjustments, nonriparian lines and
Our first section deals with angle points of nonriparian meander
lines commonly referred to as the Compass Rule adjustment or nonriparian,
broken boundary adjustment.
Essentially the nonriparian broken boundary adjustment is the method
of distributing the closing error proportionately along each course.
The meander corners are the controlling corners for this adjustment.
