Topographical Surveys are also known as Topographic Surveys, Detail Surveys, Terrain Surveys, Contour Surveys.

Topographical Surveys are the essential starting point for all “land based” projects and designs to provide accurate 2D plans and drawings as well as 3D ground model data.  

These Land Surveys can range from greenfield to brownfield sites, urban to wilderness, mines and quarries to refuse sites, and everything in between.

Topographical Surveys can be undertaken over any accessible area and provided at any scale, level of detail, in 2D or 3D and in most data formats.  Each survey can be tailored to the projects needs or to a client specification.  The data can also be provided as a basic or full 3D ground model.

All of our surveys are conducted in compliance with:

RICS “Surveys of Land, Buildings and Utility Services at Scales of 1:500 and Larger” guidance notes.  

We also keep up to date with any other survey guidance notes provided by the RICS and the TSA.

High specification Leica Geosystems equipment and instruments are used to collect the survey data.  Survey accuracy GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) is used to relate any topographical survey to the Ordnance Survey National GNSS Network (the official Ordnance Survey National Grid) if required.
