Survey field books

Series consists of various types of survey books, mainly field books, used by surveyors for making notes when determining elevations of land and locations of natural and manmade features of the landscape.

The field books contain notes on numerous topics such as land benchmarks (elevations), monument locations and topography, centerlines, flowlines, road straightening lines, and city boundary lines. In addition to the notes and measurements, many of the field books contain such information as diagrams, sketches, profiles, and drawings of various streets, sidewalks, buildings and waterways.

The “Description” column of the location list may refer to more than one numerical reference per book. In such cases, the first number in the description refers to a stamp on the cover of the volume apparently added by the Engineering Department sometime after the volumes were initially created. The description may also contain the name of the surveyor and the number he assigned the volume, separated by a dash. For example, "46; D.A. Rose - No. 5" refers to volume 46 in the overall departmental arrangement, which is D.A. Rose's personal book number 5.

Notes regarding topics of interest within individual volumes are located in the “Description” column of the list with in parentheses.
