A topographic survey is used to identify and map contours of the ground and existing features on the ground or slightly above or below the earth’s surface.
These surveys may include trees, buildings, streets, walkways, retaining walls, utility poles, water and sewer lines, storm drainage, etc. Topographic surveys are frequently used by design professionals (civil engineers and architects) to design a residence or building, or a new street or a retaining wall. When used in this manner, they can be invaluable in ensuring that the structure is designed to fit real world conditions. A detailed topographic survey can be the first step in making certain there are no hidden problems that would may cause a project to be over- or under-designed.
