I recently was asked for some ideas on how someone might "survey" some property that was donated for a church project in a remote area. They contacted a surveyor and he said it would be terribly expensive for him to travel there to do the survey. He suggested that they get their own GPS and do the survey themselves. Is that possible and legal in PNG?
The location is within a couple of miles of the mouth of the Fly River. Any suggestions? I live in the US, I have assisted with use of survey grade GPS equipment (but not a surveyor). From my understanding the physical boundaries of the property are known. They need to do a survey (document on paper) in order to register the land with the government. So here are my questions:
1. Would it be possible to find a certified surveyor who would not have to travel far?
2. If local surveyors are not available, what other options would be satisfactory for the government?
3.Are there any GPS beacons in that area providing corrections for greater precisions?
Thanks for your suggestions!
