Land Survey in Alpagal ni Tayid
The following documents and image are from the facebook page, Yap’s Development. Thank Mrs. Martina Gisog for uploading the documents. Thank Mr. Henry K. O. Norman for providing the map.
About the Image (from Mr. Henry K. O. Norman): To better see the “lay of the land,” I superimposed the border of the surveyed Gagil area (that Martina posted yesterday) onto a USGS topographical map. Recalculating the size of the “parcel” using the USGS scale yields ~ 440 acres (data source: http://goo.gl/tqrlb).
