Any conspicuous object that helps establish land boundaries.

A landmark is a prominent or notable feature of a landscape or cityscape that is used as a point of reference or a symbol of a particular place. Landmarks can be natural or man-made, and they can include mountains, lakes, buildings, monuments, statues, or any other feature that is distinctive and recognizable. Landmarks often have historical, cultural, or symbolic significance and may be important for tourism or navigation. In some cases, landmarks may also have legal or administrative significance, such as when they are designated as protected areas or listed on national registers of historic places.
