Before any engineering or construction project can begin it is crucial that property ownership and land boundaries be meticulously determined. To do this the engineers will perform land surveying. Land surveying is the process of conducting a highly detailed, thorough inspection of an area by gathering information about the three-dimensional location of points as well as the distance and angles between them. This allows land surveyors to establish a land map of points on the surface of the Earth as well as their corresponding positions beneath the Earth.

The Importance of Accurate Land Surveying

Accuracy is critical for land surveying. Land surveyors typically employ elements from many different advanced disciplines to help them calculate land ownerships, including: mathematical disciplines such as trigonometry and geometry, physics, engineering, and even law. To gather and apply this complex data engineers use tools such as land surveying total stations, digital levels, GPS receivers, radio communicators, prisms, 3D scanners, handheld tablets, and advanced surveying software. The purpose of these sophisticated tools and the careful application of those advanced studies is to yield the most accurate, precise land surveying results possible.
