survey monument

Whast's the meaning of this usual word in this context?

"The Contractor shall perform the necessary topographic surveys and establish horizontal and vertical datum points as required at all the various sites. New survey monuments shall be established for layout work. All new monuments shall be referenced to the existing Company survey monuments. The Company will provide available information of the existing survey monuments."

Thanks in advance​

    A monument is a survey mark that is permanent - like a post or a cement marker - that is placed to mark important locations, such as property line corners.
