and this became known as the Credit Indian Reserve. This tract of land surveyed in 1806, known as the “Old Survey,” was named Toronto Township, and opened up the area for settlemen

Spanish translation:agrimensura
Explanation:
A veces se traduce como "topografía", pero en mi opinión esta traducción debería reservarse para la palabra inglesa "topography", que se refiere a un concepto diferente.

prospección del terreno


Explanation:
Sin más detalles de esos trabajos, entiendo que bajo ese concepto, se incluye un primer reconocimiento y relevamiento de datos del terreno, quizás con trabajos simples de medición para delimitar el área y algún trazado cartográfico, con probables estudios de agrimensura y topografía (con instrumentos al estado de 1806), para determinar triangulaciones y desniveles.
