Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Topographic Survey?

A topographic survey involves recording the coordinates and elevation data of natural and artificial features within a designated survey area. A topographic survey is vital as it provides detailed information about the terrain, which is essential for various purposes such as land development, construction planning, and accurate mapping.

Why is Land Surveying important?

Land surveys play a crucial role in land development and planning by providing precise information about the land's features, including elevation, slopes, and existing structures. This data helps architects, engineers, and developers make informed decisions regarding site suitability, infrastructure design, and maximising land utilisation.

What are the main responsibilities of Land Surveyors?

Professional topographical surveyors conduct a survey by measuring and documenting various land features, such as contour lines, vegetation, water bodies, man-made structures and depth and shape. They examine previous land records to verify data from on-site surveys, which is then used for analysis, design, and decision-making. Land Surveyors also prepare maps and reports, and present results to clients.

What is Total Station in surveying?

A total station is an advanced surveying equipment that combines an Electromagnetic Distance Measuring Instrument, an electronic theodolite, and a microprocessor-based data collector and storage system. It enables accurate measurements of horizontal and vertical angles, as well as the distance from the instrument to objects, providing precise data for a topographical survey.

What is the accuracy of a Total Station?

A typical total station is capable of measuring distances up to 1,500 meters (4,900 ft) with impressive accuracy, approximately 1.5 millimeters (0.059 in) ± 2 parts per million. This high level of precision ensures reliable data collection, allowing for a precise topographical survey. We adhere to industry standards to deliver reliable and precise results.
