City Standards

Any contractor providing survey data to The City of Greater Sudbury must adhere to City Standards.

  • The City of Greater Sudbury uses AutoCAD Civil 3D software to generate survey drawings.
  • Other software may be used as long as the end product adheres to our standards and is provided in .dwg (AutoCAD) format.

All surveys are to be collected in reference to NAD83CSRS using the City of Greater Sudbury's MTM Zone 81 Map Projection.

General notes and frequency of survey points are intended to clearly outline the City of Greater Sudbury's requirements and expectations for surveys and as built creation.

This drawing is to be used as reference in conjunction with our as builts and construction record data specifications, as well as example as built drawings, drafting standards and other available online material.
