Land surveying deals with the study, measurement and representation of the land, on plans and maps, with all the existing forms of planimetry and landscape. In land surveying measurements, which are performed on small areas, the curvature of the Earth is not taken into account.
The field measurements together with their representation on the plan are called land surveys. The concrete result of a land survey is the topographic plan or topographic map.
An elevation surveyor needs knowledge of geometric optics, fine mechanics, strength of materials and others, for the practical use of topographic and geodetic instruments, in order to accurately measure angles and distances.
The land inventory is performed both by graphical representation on convenient scale plans of the elements that are highlighted in the cadastre, and analytically, by sheets and registers of technical, economic and legal records in which data are recorded.
It is a particular job, very specialized, which can only be done by professional land / elevation surveyors. When you need such a specialist, the easiest way is to use online resources. There are all kinds of sites where you can easily find elevation surveyors near you. Also, a Google search using keywords like “Colorado land surveying”, “elevation surveyor near me” or “land surveyor near me” can bring you more results than you’d have time to look at.
Additionally, you can go to the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies, where you can download a list of local licensed land surveyor Colorado Springs professionals.
