Why do I need to map my land?
Claims to ownership extend over boundaries established over years or even decades. Using advanced tools and expert knowledge, this service serves as the grounding for land deeds, rights of way, permits, and leases.
Confusion abounds in claims to mineral rights. The mineral estate and surface estate are two separate entities in Texas. The mineral estate dominates over the rights of the surface owner.
Despite access rights, state law requires that any access to deposits should not significantly burden the surface owner. Rights of way are particularly important when negotiating access to deposits. With reasonability implied under any contract, owners must come to an understanding and often create extremely explicit guarantees regarding access.
Furthermore, some access is not included when a landowner sells mineral rights. Groundwater is considered part of the surface estate. Therefore, it is important to know the exact position of subsurface and surface resources.
What is GIS mapping?
GIS mapping uses technology to establish boundaries and the coordinates of resources with pinpoint accuracy. Experts in mapping establish the location of your claim both above and below the surface. They use tools such as ArcGIS to generate electronic maps of resources, boundaries, and anything affecting claims and production.
This mapping also allows extraction to proceed without interfering with the rights of the surface owner. As stated, landowners retain rights to groundwater and expect a reasonable effort to avoid creating a burden.
The knowledge gained from GIS mapping is invaluable. Mapping serves as the foundation for the establishment of rights of way, determination of the extent of mineral rights, and allow for negotiation from a position of understanding.
Since penalties are available for exploration that extends beyond reasonably necessary efforts to avoid damage, extraction needs to consider the best way to access a deposit. This means thoroughly understanding the land.
