Land development may be an exciting project, but before you begin, you need to make sure that you know everything about the property. High definition surveying is a good choice that will provide a wide array of information about the property, such as its history, boundaries, and other information that could have an impact on your project’s timeline and your decisions. As long as it is conducted by seasoned land surveyors, you can be sure that it will be informative, and accurate, and that it will protect your investment in the long run. Here is an overview of the benefits of high definition surveys:
- Based on high-end technology – High definition surveying uses 3D laser scanners, which employ a narrow laser beam to sweep across the area to be surveyed, while picking up a lot of closely spaced measurements within a few minutes. The measurements are uploaded into a computer to build a representation of the scanned area, resulting in a three-dimensional model, which can be navigated and explored as such.
- Quick and precise results – Conventional surveying methods could take some time to do, as they may involve manual measurements with traditional equipment, as well as repeat measurements to ensure accuracy. High definition surveying is swifter and more precise, making it a more preferred method if you want to save time. This way, it continues to be the first choice in high-profile projects, and it helps revolutionize the industry.
- Protect your workers and surveyors – An HD survey uses 3D laser scanning equipment, which can be set up in a particular area that is safe or at least minimally risky to your workers and surveyors. This can be beneficial if you are surveying heavily traveled areas and unstable job sites.
- Versatile – High definition surveying is applicable to many situations, such as creating or updating as-built documentation, condition and damage assessment, and tank/vessel volumetric information, and clash/interference checking.
