Topographic Survey – is an activity whereby the topographical features of a parcel of land are measured and mapped. The service is most commonly conducted on the front-end of residential lot development and grading projects, construction projects, septic system designs, landscaping projects, swimming pool installation projects or utility design and installation projects. The service includes measurement and mapping of locations and elevations of all visible above ground features and structures and involves development of elevation contours and optionally, analysis and plotting of subterranean utilities based on record sources and the Pennsylvania One-Call System in conjunction with visible evidence. Resulting plans or maps are prepared using industry standard CAD software and are delivered in digital PDF format and can be provided in CAD format to your architect or civil engineer as the basis for site design.
