what is Topography?

Topography is the study of the shape and features of land surfaces. The topography of an area could refer to the surface shapes and features themselves, or a description.

What are Topographic/Topographical Surveys?

A Topographic/Topographical Survey is a survey that gathers data about the elevation of points on a piece of land and presents them as contour lines on a plot. The purpose of a topographic survey is to collect survey data about the natural and man-made features of the land, as well as its elevations. Topographic map is used to show elevations and grading features for architects, engineers, and building contractors.

Topographic Survey Services which we provide:

We mainly provide Topographic maps for Road Survey, GPS Survey, Land Survey and Contour Survey.

How are Topographic Surveys done?

Topographic surveys are done with a surveying-quality GPS unit, or with an electronic EDM instrument which record coordinates and height data for a particular survey area. The results of the topographic survey are presented as contour lines on a site map, and can be enhanced by computer software to provide interactive views.

Instruments We use for Topographic Surveys:

How much does Topographic Survey Costs?

A Topographic Surveyor can work on their own but often works in a team of 2 to get the work completed. The number of hours or days to survey a piece of land can vary based on a number of factors, these include:

  • The extent of the land to be surveyed.
  • How overgrown the area of land is.
  • The level of detail you require.
  • The level of accuracy you require.
  • The location of the plot of land.

When the surveyor has completed their site work, they will need to return to the office to draw up the topographic plan. A day draughting in the office to produce the drawings can range in price. 

When to request a Topographic Survey?

Topographic surveys, also known as contour surveys, may be required as part of real estate transactions, civil engineering design and construction projects, including:
1. New construction
2. Remodeling projects to existing structures
3. Utility design
4. Road or bridge design or improvements
5. Grading or drainage projects
Topographic surveys are required by many local government bodies to determine the existing conditions and elevations of a site. Together with a boundary survey, topographic surveys are used by architects and engineers to create accurate and appropriate designs based on existing conditions.

Benefits of Topographic Surveys to Clients:

Topographic surveys clearly define the boundaries of what you own and ensure your property is in compliance with local zoning regulations. This can help you steer clear of disputes with neighbors and nearby property owners, and can give you valuable information should you want to improve or add onto the property in the future.

Clients can use topographic surveys to determine and plan features such as drainage ditches, grading, or other features, using the natural landscape as the basis for such improvements. Engaging a professional surveyor to conduct a topographic survey prior to real estate transaction or the commencement or a construction project will ensure that the land’s features will be suitable for its intended use. In addition, a topographic survey can provide valuable insight in to how a site’s previous or current use affected the land, enabling better planning for future use.
