Learn the Different Types of Land Surveying Services Available in California

Hiring a land surveying service in California can speed up your process of measuring land and acquiring accurate information and data about the property. A reputable land surveying firm ensures the highest-quality and precise results for different clients, including those in engineering, telecommunications, real estate, development, and environmental industries. Land surveying services can be categorized into three major types:

1. Surveying and mapping:

ALTA/ACSM land title surveys and high-definition 3D laser scanning surveying are among those that are under this category. Land title surveys must be conducted by an approved surveying firm in the US, so you must hire a reputable, certified, and recognized land surveying company in California for these. That way, you can be sure that the firm will conduct the survey following a uniform set of standard code for certain purposes, like construction. Land title surveys are also known as 'due diligence surveys', which are commissioned to provide information to setback requirements, country zoning laws, and the property's height requirement.

High-definition 3D laser scanning uses state-of-the-art land surveying equipment and software to provide a faster and more accurate way to survey or map a land. It is useful for professionals like project developers, builders, and architects, especially when they need to accurately survey a land that has already been built and being examined for demolition, renovation, remodeling, or another purpose.

2. Telecom surveys:

Telecommunication-specific land surveying services cover as-built surveys, 1-A/2-C FAA certifications, construction staking, site walks, rooftop surveys, lease area legal description and exhibits, tower mapping, and cell site certification and geodetic control.

Topographic surveys may be conducted for telecommunications purposes, too. This type of survey is used to map and identify the contours of a ground and the existing features on the surface or slightly below or above the earth. It will provide the exact figures of the position, height, and size of the changes that have occurred on the land over the course of time with regard to the presence of any man-made installations. Topographic surveys are conducted using electronic EDM instruments and high-end GPS equipment.

3. Environmental surveys:

An environmental land survey may include tasks like geotracker reporting, monitoring wells, topographic surveys, boundary, as-built surveys, construction staking, and earth quantity calculations. High-qualified land surveyors can conduct these surveys accurately using high-definition surveying equipment and other proven, high-end surveying tools.
