All You Need To Know About Topographical Surveys

Topographic Surveys Bristol

Introduction

A topographical survey (or land survey) is defined as the detailed mapping and the charting of features upon an area of land.

Commonly referred to as a “topo”, this type of survey establishes the topographic relief and records any visible boundaries of a parcel of land. A topo also accurately charts and details the position of natural and man-made features. In addition, a survey can graphically represent the surface land cover and document its present land use.
