What is a topgraphical survey?

A topographical survey is an accurate type of survey that gathers data about the elevation of land at key points of a site (property, area of land, defined boundaries etc). It is then presented as contour lines on a plot that is scaled and detailed according to the spatial considerations required by the client.

The main purpose for having a topographic survey is to collect survey data about the man made features and natural elevations and features of the land. These survey reports can then be used by architects, engineers, farmers and building contractors.

Additional information can often be integrated into topographical surveys including site sections, spot heights, underground utilities and other relevant information.

By using a detailed topographical survey at the early design stage of a project can save both time and reduce the overall costs of the project.
