Land surveying is the gathering of information through observations, field measurements, research, review of legal documents and data analysis to assist:
- the planning and designing of construction projects
- architects and engineers with site design and civil projects
- contractors by setting control stakes for site improvements
- attorneys, title companies and developers with the sale or purchase, development or subdivision of residential, commercial and industrial real estate projects.
Land surveying involves the precise measurements of angles, distances, elevations, area and volume to establish horizontal and vertical control systems for any portion of the earth’s surface.
As an expert in measuring, the professional land surveyor incorporates levels, Robotic Total Stations, GPS, drones and laser scanners into their daily work.
