The following information relates to the use of a right-line boundary to define the horizontal extent of a parcel.

Right-line boundaries only for horizontal extent of parcel

A right-line boundary may be used to define the horizontal extent of a parcel boundary [r 6.5(a)(i)], but not the vertical extent.

Refer to Stratum boundaries

Length and direction of line expressed as vector

The length and direction of the boundary is normally expressed as a vector [r 9.6.14(a)(i)].

Associated boundary points of right-line

Each right-line boundary terminates at an associated boundary point as illustrated in Figure 1.
