delimit, mark

Measured points must be marked so that they can be found again later. Nails, ring pins, wooden posts (a Phillips screw in the top of it will make it easier to place the ranging rod exactly on the spot) can be used as markers.

Boundary points of the land register are marked with nails, bolts, chiselled crosses or boundary stones. Additional subterranean markers such as clay cones, drainpipes or bottles are often found under boundary stones. Official boundary and survey points must not be damaged, moved or even removed!
