What is Land Surveying?

Land surveying is the art and science of establishing or reestablishing corners, lines, boundaries, and monuments of real property (land) based upon recorded documents, historical evidence, and present standards of practice. Land Surveying also includes associated services such as analysis and utilization of survey data, subdivision planning and design, writing legal descriptions, mapping, construction layout, and precision measurements of angle, length, area, and volume.

One of the primary roles of the land surveyor is to find the boundary of a person’s property. That boundary is described in legal documents and the land surveyor follows that description and locates the boundary on the physical land and marks it, so the owner knows what land he/she owns.

Land surveying is a part Archeology and part Private Investigator. This combination provides independent information that protects your property rights.
