We are celebrating this week by sharing some information about land surveyors and the Redniss & Mead Surveying Team.
The purpose of National Surveyors Week is to bring visibility to the profession. During Surveyors Week, land surveyors across the nation celebrate by educating the public on what they do & why it is important; encouraging students to consider surveying as a career choice; and participating in activities that promote and bring awareness to the surveying profession. All licensees, governmental agencies, technical professional organizations and citizens groups are encouraged to join the celebration.
What Surveyors Do
There are a number of services that only a licensed Professional Surveyor is allowed to provide, specifically those related to the location of property boundaries, but Surveyors also provide a wide variety of land related services such as location, topography, spatial position, and land use planning. Basically, anything related to land location and use will generally require the services of a Professional Surveyor.
A few of these services include;
- Boundary line surveys and consultation;
- Subdivision of land;
- Topographic maps and accident site maps;
- Construction surveys for placement of planned buildings, facilities, utilities, etc.
- Flood insurance maps (FEMA Flood Certificates; Letters of Map Amendment, etc.)
- Hydrographic maps (maps of the topography underwater);
- Volumetric calculations for stockpiles (coal piles, etc.);
- Control networks to reference property within a specific local, state, or national geospatial framework.
