Surveys – Registered Plans of Survey

Registered Plans of Survey

The Registered Plans of Survey layer shows the boundaries for all plans of survey registered with Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia land titles. They include various plan types like subdivision, easement, road and pipeline Right of Way plans. The image below shows an area on the map with the Registered Plans of Survey boundaries turned on. The black lines represent the plan of survey boundaries, while the coloured lines in the map are AER pipelines.

The Registered Plans of Survey layer is particularly useful in determining the correct location of high-pressure pipelines.  While the coloured pipelines showing on the map may not always be showing in the correct location, the Registered Plans of Survey boundaries are more spatially accurate, as shown in the image below.
