What does a Land Surveyor Do?

Land Surveying is the practice of establishing the exact positions of boundaries and other features of a parcel of land. It involves measuring distances, angles, and elevations of points of reference, as well as determining the area of the land and the location of structures. Land Surveying is an essential part of many types of construction, engineering, and other land-related projects. Land Surveyors create, maintain, and interpret land records used to protect the property rights of landowners and help make decisions regarding land development.
