Land surveying is the art and science of creating and retracing land boundaries, based on historical records, documents, deeds, recorded instruments, physical evidence, and boundary law principles.

Land surveying involves the precise measurement of angles, distances, elevations, area and volume to established horizontal and vertical control systems for any portion of the earth’s surface.

As an ‘expert measurer’, the surveyor incorporates levels, Robotic Total Stations, GPS and laser scanners into their daily work, performing ALTA, boundary and topographic surveys, mapping, subdivision and construction staking services.
