What is a Topographic Survey?

Typically, a topographic survey would be required during new construction, remodeling projects, road or bridge construction, and grading projects.

Before any construction can begin on a piece of land, a topographical survey is most likely needed. This can also be known as a land or ground survey. This specific type of survey identifies and locates both the man-made and natural features on the property, giving all parties working on the job a reference point from which to start. 

When you order a topographic survey from Janes Surveying, Inc. in Midwest, it will depict all natural features and elevations of your property. The measurements for a topographical survey are taken using both global positioning systems (GPS) and electronic distance metering (EDM). Essentially, it is a 3-D map of the property. It will identify location, size, height, and elevation changes throughout your property.
