Krause Surveying, Inc.


Land Surveying is the art and science of: 1) reestablishing cadastral surveys and land boundaries based on documents of record and historical evidence; 2) planning, designing and establishing property boundaries; and 3) certifying surveys as required by statute or local ordinance such as subdivision plats, registered land surveys, judicial surveys, and space delineation. Land surveying can include associated services such as mapping and related data accumulation; construction layout surveys; precision measurements of length, angle, elevation, area and volume; horizontal and vertical control systems; and the analysis and utilization of survey data.

Boundary Surveys

Land Surveying

A survey made to establish or to re-establish a boundary line on the ground or to obtain data for constructing a map or plat showing a boundary line. Boundary surveys are used for locating lines and corners of tracts of land as per deed description in addition to locating improvements, easements, building lines, and apparent encroachments found on the subject property.  The corners of the property are physically located, and, if necessary, iron stakes are set at corners for monuments.

It is recognized that members of the American Land Title Association (ALTA) have specific needs, peculiar to title insurance matters, which require particular information for acceptance by title insurance companies when said companies are asked to insure title to land without exception as to the many matters which might be discoverable from survey and inspection and not be evidenced by the public records.  In the general interest of the public, the surveying profession, title insurers and abstracters, ALTA and the National Society of Professional Surveyors, Inc. (NSPS) jointly promulgate and set forth such details and criteria for standards.  It is recognized and understood that local and state standards or standards of care, which surveyors in those respective jurisdictions are bound by, may augment, or even require variations to the standards outlined herein.  Where conflicts between the standards outlined herein and any jurisdictional statutes or regulations occur, the more restrictive requirement shall apply.  It is also recognized that title insurance companies are entitled to rely on the survey furnished to them to be of an appropriate professional quality, both as to completeness and as to accuracy.  It is equally recognized that for the performance of a survey, the surveyor will be provided with appropriate data which can be relied upon in the preparation of the survey.

For a survey of real property and the plat or map of the survey to be acceptable to a title insurance company for purposes of insuring title to said real property free and clear of survey matters (except those matters disclosed by the survey and indicated on the plat or map), certain specific and pertinent information shall be presented for the distinct and clear understanding between the client (insured), the title insurance company (insurer), and the surveyor (the person professionally responsible for the survey). 




We sometimes have to bring out the big guns to handle property disputes...

Property Disputes



Wind power is growing strongly in the US and elsewhere. However, the rate at which additional wind projects can be undertaken is limited by many factors including local permitting and the availability of suitable electrical grid capacity.

Wind farms can provide safe, clean and affordable power. What’s more, in areas with good wind conditions, onshore wind power can actually cost less than conventional power generation. However, to make the most of wind power, businesses and governments need to work together to build capacity in areas where the wind blows strongly, such as the Great Plains in the US. These projects, in turn, need to be connected to population centers by power lines.

One of our wind farms is located in Livingston County, Cayuga Ridge Wind Farm has 150 turbines spread over approximately 49 square miles.  Other wind farms include Fowler Ridge in Benton County, Indiana, we are now entering into phase 4 of that project. Meadow Lake phase IV and V in White County, Indiana and we are looking forward to other wind farm projects in the future. Krause Surveying has enjoyed working with our wind farm project partners, and is proud to have diversified its survey department to meet their needs.
