A LEADING land agent has invested in a revolutionary satellite position system which will help stop costly arguments about land disputes.

Boundary disputes range from arguments about a few centimetres to a acres of ground, with each one throwing up a range of emotional and financial stresses.

Bell Ingram’s new Trimble Catalyst Global Navigation Satellite System is accurate to within 1-2 cm which removes any arguments about potential surveying misinterpretations.
Chris Duncan, Head of Mapping and GIS at Bell Ingram, said: “Each boundary dispute offers different perspectives, challenges and emotions.

“Our new Trimble Satellite positioning equipment is ultra-accurate and this technology, coupled with our team’s expert knowledge, allows us to identify correct boundary locations even when physical features don’t exist on the ground.

“It’s crucial when you’re locked in a boundary disagreement that you have a team of trusted experts on your side. Thanks to this new technology, we’re able to focus on the core issues behind the dispute, rather than just opinions about where one area of land ends and another begins.

“This means we can provide expert witness reports, with an increased degree of confidence, when working with legal professionals to ensure we get the very best results possible for our clients.”
Bell Ingram’s expert mapping professionals are able to interpret title plans and the underlying mapping data from which they are based and then using the Trimble technology, identify these features on the ground.

The firm’s industry-leading software enables it to make the best use of internet data as well as perform direct data exchanges with other organisations on behalf of clients.
Chris added: “Our team has a wealth of experience in rural matters and all things mapping.

“The advanced Geographical Information Systems we use mean that clients can be assured that the service we provide will be highly accurate and efficient.

“We use it alongside cloud-based technology which allows us to work with clients remotely and free them up to go about their other daily business.”

Head quartered in Perth, Bell Ingram manages over 500,000 hectares across the UK on behalf of public, private and corporate clients.

It specialises in rural land management for private clients and has built a name as one of the UK’s leading providers of land management services for the energy sector.
