(c)

Each area must be expressed in hectares.

(d)

Each bearing, distance, reduced level, and area must be recorded to sufficient significant figures to reflect the accuracy requirements specified in these Rules.

Each horizontal distance and area must be reduced to the ellipsoid used for the official geodetic datum.

8.3.4

Bearings

Each bearing must be expressed clockwise from north.

8.3.5

A vertical angle must be expressed in terms of the horizontal plane.

8.4

Adopted information to match source

Except for the conversion of units of measure or the application of a bearing adjustment, all adopted information, including accepted information, must be copied without change.

8.5

CSD to be lodged for boundary marking

(a)

When a boundary mark is placed on a cadastral survey that does not create a parcel, a CSD of the survey must be lodged within six months of that placement.
