Topographic surveys are used to identify and map the positions on the ground and existing features on the surface of the earth, or slightly above or below the earth’s surface (i.e. trees, buildings, streets, walkways, manholes, utility poles, etc). The survey may reflect both the horizontal and/or vertical location of improvements on the subject property.
Meridian Surveys, Inc. is well versed in the preparation of topographic surveys and is familiar with various county agencies or architects in the area as to their requirements. Whether planning an addition to your present home or the development of a fifty acre site, Meridian Surveys, Inc. can prepare the necessary topographic survey for your project that will be used a base map for the rest of the professional consultants on your project (i.e. architects, engineers, landscape architects, etc.)
Topographic surveys establish the different manmade and the natural features of land. This type of survey can be very beneficial to property owners. Land may include hills, trees, fences, buildings, ravines. A topographical survey will provide exact figures of the size, height and position of different changes that have occurred over the course of time with regard to their presence or that of any man made structures.
Many construction projects include a topographic survey in the early planning stages, because engineers and architects refer to the topographic information during site and structural design. Landscape architects and planners use topographic surveys for the formulation of an optimal plan for drainage, grading and other features.
