Land area is derived from computation of the courses and distances observed. Different surveyors had different methods for area determination, and techniques changed over time. One key to description and interpretation is that when area is expressed in precise, or refined, units, such as acres and rods, it is based on some type of measurement and probably on a survey.

Slope Measurement vs. Horizontal. Another consideration in the interpretation of distance is whether the measurement was made horizontally or along the slope. Recent measurements are almost always horizontal distances, although they may have been taken on a slope and reduced to horizontal distance. Earlier measurements were sometimes expressed as taken without any corrections being made. In extremely steep terrain, a significant error can result in long lines. 20. In some states, such as North Carolina, Kentucky, and Tennessee, slope measurements were common, but they may be encountered anywhere.
