Topographic Surveys




The purpose of a TOPOGRAPHIC SURVEY is to collect survey data about the natural as well as man-made features of land, and it's elevations.  From this information we can make a three dimensional map.  

The work involved in a topographic survey (topo for short) usually consists of the following steps:

  • Establishing horizontal & Vertical control that will serve as the framework of the survey,
  • Determining enough horizontal locations and elevations of ground points to provide enough data for plotting an accurate map of the parcel,
  • Locating natural and man-made features that may be required for the purpose of the survey,
  • Computing distances, angles, volumes and elevations of the earthwork,
  • Finally, drafting a comprehensive topographic map for the client. 
R. L. Galloway Surveying performs many Topo's to support design professionals in their efforts to produce site plans and drawings that ultimately become a reality.  Whatever the project, wherever the location may be, all design projects must begin with a topo so that the Engineer has an accurate, comprehensive "picture" of the parcel to be designed.

We are always here to answer your questions, if you are considering a Topo or any other land project please contact us and allow us to counsel you on the best avenue to proceed with your project.
