SURVEYING

WHAT IS
SURVEYING

Surveying and land surveying is the measurement and mapping of our surroundings. By using specialised technology and surveying equipment, Surveyors are able to accurately identify the position of an object either natural or man-made. This technology can measure almost anything from the earth to the sky, buildings and even the sea floor. Surveyors are often the first people involved for any type of land development, providing information about land boundaries and topography. Engineering surveyors are able to review plans to identify any potential structural or design issues. Their measurements provide the building blocks for architects to design around the landscape and engineers to plan structures accurately. They are essential in the planning and design of projects across a range of industries.

There are many types of surveying, with land surveying, also known as cadastral surveying being the most well known, used for any land developments. Engineering surveying refers to the type of work surveyors perform in building and civil construction, which is an essential step in the engineering design stage. Mining surveyors are involved in the planning, construction and operation of open cut and underground mines while Geodetic surveyors take precise measurements that track the movements of continents and monitor sea rise and earthquakes. Hydrographic or Bathymetric surveying measures the sea floor and is essential in the planning of construction of docks and harbours and ensuring the safe passage of ships. Aerial surveying or photogrammetry and remote sensing rely on data provided from images or sensors that pick up wavelength bands such as infrared or ultraviolet. This technique is used to map large areas and seek anomalies that would otherwise not be visible by eye. Topographic surveys provide in depth details about the surrounding environment regarding location and variability in height of any number of features, essential in the design of roads, buildings and other new infrastructure.

DRONE SURVEYING AND MAPPING

Drones have revolutionised an industry, by enabling highly accurate data collection without needing physical access. Drones are able to complete aerial mapping and produce high-resolution digital surface models in a fraction of the time and cost as regular surveying and mapping. Aerial surveying can be used across landscapes and buildings, providing eyes in previously inaccessible places.

LASER SCANNING

Laser scanners are able to quickly collect millions of data points with accurate three-dimensional coordinates from the surface of a building or ground, which then creates an accurate 3D model for engineers and designers to work with. Not only is this a cost effective method, it provides a complete and accurate data set for your development.

AERIAL PHOTOGRAMMETRY

Advanced technologies have transformed the way we study a landscape. Through remote sensing and aerial photography, we are able to generate 3D elevation models and topographic maps of your site. This accurate and detailed data ensures your project starts off on the right foundations.
