Land Surveying and GPS

Land Surveying and GPS Land surveyors once used tape measures and transits to measure distances and positions. Since the 1980s, electronic distance measurement, or EDM, devices have allowed for much more efficient and accurate measurements. These use a wave of energy that is shot between the EDM instrument and a reflector. The time the beam takes to return is then calculated as distance. Today, such...

Total Stations

Total Stations Up until about 35 years ago, surveying heavily relied on the Transit. Now a professional survey is much more likely to be seen using a Total Station. There are 3 major manufacturers for surveying and mapping. They are Topcon, Leica, and Trimble. Each of these companies produces a wide variety of instruments. A total station is simply a theodolite (Transit) that uses an electronic...

Surveying Underwater – Hydrographic and Bathymetric Surveys Did you know that land surveyors are also responsible for surveying water, including the depths of the oceans? These types of surveys are called hydrographic and bathymetric surveys. The data collected during a hydrographic survey includes water depth, contours along the bottom, the direction of the current, high water marks, and any underwater landmarks or even shore landmarks...

Hydrographic Surveys

Hydrographic Surveys The world is a detailed and complex place, which is why we have surveys to try and unscramble the puzzle. Hydrographic surveys are just one way of mapping the areas of Earth below water. What are they? Hydrographic surveys are a method of measuring and describing the depth, nature and configuration of areas below bodies of water. Hydrographic surveys can also show the height and...
