DEFINITION of 'Meander Line'

Lines and boundaries that are established for surveying and mapping. Meander lines are run by surveyors for mapping and surveying purposes for a body of water. The lines are drawn around the lake or pond for the purpose of measuring property that abuts the water.

BREAKING DOWN 'Meander Line'

Meander lines differ from boundary lines, which sometime extend to the center of the body of water. Meander lines usually form a zigzag traverse pattern to match the general boundary of the lake or pond.
