What is surveying?

It is the process of measuring and mapping the physical features of a piece of land or an area. It involves using specialised equipment such as total stations, GPS receivers, and levels to determine the location, height, and orientation of points on the earth’s surface. 

This process is used in a variety of industries, including civil engineering, construction, mining, and forestry. Some common applications include land boundary determination, topographic mapping, construction layout, and monitoring the deformation of structures. The data collected during is used to create maps, plans, and 3D models that help engineers, architects, and construction professionals make informed decisions about their projects.

Here at bplanned and surveyed, our surveyors are trained professionals, all registered with the Surveyors Board of Qld. They are experienced with the knowledge, skills, and tools to undertake all your requirements. These may include:

  1. Land boundary disputes: Our surveyors can accurately determine the location of property lines and settle boundary disputes.
  2. Construction projects: We can set out buildings, roads, and other structures so they are properly located and aligned according to the plans.
  3. Property transactions: When buying or selling property, it’s important to have an accurate understanding of the property boundaries, as well as any easements, rights-of-way, or other encumbrances.
  4. Control monitoring: We can monitor changes over time, such as the movement of buildings, structures and natural surfaces and features.

We have a dedicated survey team, headed up by director and cadastral surveyor Jim Goodwin, who has over 20 years of experience in the industry. To learn more or discuss your survey requirements, call in on 1300 275 266.

Frequently Asked Questions About Surveying in Brisbane

Cadastral (or boundary) surveys are typically carried out by registered cadastral surveyors who use specialised equipment to measure and mark the boundaries of a particular piece of land. These surveys may involve the creation of new boundaries, the re-establishment of existing boundaries, or the identification of boundary discrepancies or encroachments. 

A contour survey, also known as a topographical survey, is a survey that measures and maps the elevation of the land. It shows the height and location of natural and man-made features, such as hills, valleys, streams, roads, buildings, and other structures.

A detail survey, also known as a feature survey, is a survey that records the precise locations and dimensions of all features on a piece of land, including buildings, fences, trees, utility poles, and other features.

Both contour and detail surveys are essential for designing and planning any construction or development project.

Land surveying services matter because they provide accurate measurements and maps of the land, which are essential for property ownership, construction and development, legal disputes, safety, and environmental protection.
