Traverse record

These are surveyors’ technical records showing how a particular survey was made.

They are made up of schedules of coordinates assigned to each named survey mark, and the vectors between marks. Traverse records are also known as traverse reductions or books, and are generally bound volumes. You can order copies of traverse records. You will need the traverse book number and page (found on survey plans, and in old plan registers).
