What Surveyors Do
Share |

There are a number of services that only a licensed Professional Surveyor is allowed to provide, specifically those related to the location of property boundaries, but Surveyors also provide a wide variety of land related services such as location, topography, spatial position, and land use planning. Basically, anything related to land location and use will generally require the services of a Professional Surveyor.


A few of these services include;

  • Boundary line surveys and consultation;

  • Subdivision of land;

  • Topographic maps and accident site maps;

  • Construction surveys for placement of planned buildings, facilities, utilities, etc.

  • Flood insurance maps (FEMA Flood Certificates; Letters of Map Amendment, etc.)

  • Hydrographic maps (maps of the topography underwater);

  • Volumetric calculations for stockpiles (coal piles, etc.);

  • Control networks to reference property within a specific local, state, or national geospatial framework.
