These types of maps may be useful to achieve the following:

  • Locate SMZs, streams, or existing crossings.
  • Locate existing roads, or trails.
  • Get a general idea of the location of items such as boundary lines, buildings on the property, or the location of the property itself.

Although these maps are usually made by a person with firsthand knowledge of the property, they may have some drawbacks:

  • Maps are not usually not to scale.
  • Maps may be outdated.
  • Maps may be overly simplistic and lack important detail.
  • Maps usually only include items which are important to the landowner, and may not include details which would be useful such as wet areas, topography, and soil types.
