Unambiguous determination of point coordinates in the geodetic measurement network when establishing land records

The article discusses the problem of unambiguous determination of the geodetic control network points’ coordinates in the State Geodetic Coordinate System 2000, fixed during works related to the establishment of land records. The solutions and measurement methods applied in this respect, in accordance with the applicable standards, in many cases do not allow the correct identification of the boundary points of land plots in the process of their designation. The data provided by the district centres of surveying and cartographic documentation (PODGiK) concerning the point coordinates of measurement networks established for the purpose of creating land records in the period following World War II present a lot of problems for geodetic contractors. Due to the lack of unambiguous coordinates of the geodetic network points, undertaking additional work is often required, including the identification of geodetic network points and verifying the compliance of their position in the field, based on the archival data. These are time-consuming activities, and they do not always bring the intended effect. The present article contains the results of the research on the compliance of archival data with the actual location of points in geodetic networks, in several selected precincts of the Świętokrzyskie region. On the basis of the analyses we have carried out, discrepancies were determined within the data constituting the PODGiK resources, and a solution was proposed to obtain coordinates of geodetic network points that could be considered correct.
