A Land surveyor is a pro in accurate sizing for maps, marking out points and corners in construction. Surveyors also mark out corners for legal boundaries. Surveyors make use of high accuracy machines in their work. Common tools in use in the land surveying field include total stations, GPS, levels as well as drones.
Land surveyors deal with sizes of land, land surface patterns, and parts of buildings in various forms.
In the civil and built engineering, land surveyors direct and lead site works in terms of managing positions and levels of parts of the building.
Every aspect of size on a drawing or design should appear on the ground as it is on the design. Therefore, surveyors manage the transfer of info from the drawing to the ground.
Examples of surveyor’s roles in engineering projects include setting out surveys and as-built surveys. Such projects can be bridge construction, railways, roads, dams, power stations, shopping malls and more.
Land survey consultants often appoint land surveyors to specific projects in order for daily works to be done effectively.
Land Surveyor: The Legal Responsibilities in Property Boundaries
Property boundary division is a job that cannot be done by anyone except a land surveyor who is in the register of surveyor general to perform such work.
First, the surveyors take accurate sizing on the property for sub-divisions or corner marking. Additionally, surveyors also combine two or more pieces of land into one legal document. Then the surveyor uses the data to plot a diagram and lodge it at the Surveyor General’s Office for approval. This diagram, a surveyor general diagram (SG diagram), is the one to register and attach onto title deeds.
When you a buy a piece of land, the rights of ownership is shown in the form of a title deed. A surveyor prepares such a diagram to shows legal corners of a piece of land. On that diagram, data such as the shape of the land, the outline corners and length of the sides are shown.
Additionally, surveyors also play a role in country boundaries disputes as they measure and record such data. Moreover, in national and regional mapping projects land surveyors are at the start of the process.
