This step in fence line establishment is critical prior to cutting. During this stage the line is laid out to be as straight as possible with a minimal number of corners thereby avoiding unnecessary bends, turns and angle points. This can be performed by following a compass bearing, road edge, abandoned cranberry bog perimeter, or other topographical features. In some cases the flagged perimeter can be located via GPS and plotted over a photograph (see picture - blue line is proposed fence line). The line can then be evaluated in reference to the surrounding vegetation, topography, access and adjusted accordingly if necessary. This is a color infrared photograph. The blue line represents the proposed fence and the blue cirlces represent corner posts.
