when referring to closure: the amount of error allowed based on the claim. For example, a 1-acre lot may have a perimeter of 900 feet. Assuming a closure of 1:10,000, the acceptable closure error is 0.09′ or about an inch.
when referring to corner location: the acceptable difference between the calculated location of a corner and the actual location of that corner is controlled by many factors: the size of the boundary, the age of the previous survey, the previous adherence to the corner by surveyors or landowners, etc.
