State Of The Art Technology for Your Land Survey

Land surveys have become a pre-requisite for any kind of construction these days. A typical land survey accurately determines the terrestrial or three-dimensional position of points on the earth and measures the distances and angles between them. In order to do this, land surveyors make use of trigonometry, geometry, mathematics, physics and engineering knowledge. But having knowledge is not enough, now you also need to know the use of the latest technologies in the respective line of work to make your work easier, time-saving and accurate. Nowadays, if you need to do a land survey, then there is various high definition surveying techniques like 3D surveying which provide value for money to the customers. The 3D scanning service is a powerful technology that digitally captures the shape of physical objects with the help of a laser light and thereby captures the exact shape and dimension of the object and generates an accurate 3D image of the object on the computer.

Before beginning any renovation, remodeling or extension project, the construction and design team need access the precise data of existing conditions. These existing conditions are also known as “As-Built conditions”. While doing this data analysis, the team members can face a number of As-Built documentation challenges. These challenges could be obsolete or total lack of As-Built Drawings. The manual collection of As-Built measurements can be slow and are usually prone to error. But with the invention of 3D laser scanning services, one can obtain more accurate and detailed As-built drawings. This helps in saving a considerable amount of project cost through the reduction of construction reworks and construction delays. It also reduces the data collection time as manual As-Built information is time-consuming.

The As-Built drawings, as obtained from the 3D laser scanning can be applied for making processing plants, piping and ductwork retrofits, historic building preservation and renovation and other works. These days, there exists a number of land surveying firms which offer high-tech land surveying services to their customers. These land surveying firms provide their clients with quick turn-around and highly detailed GPS, geodetic and other land surveys and ensure the quality and timeliness of the project. Some of these firms also consult with their clients in determining their exact land survey needs, assuring them of the most cost-effective land survey required for their project. These land surveying firms also offer other services like monitoring well surveys, geo-tracker reporting, topographic surveys, earth quantity calculations, boundary surveys and construction staking.
