Topographic Surveys involve the production of maps and plans which are true to scale. The maps are produced to accurately represent details of both the natural and built environments. They will also include symbols representing features or data too small to produce to scale and establish the position and shape of natural and man-made features of any given area. Contour lines are present to indicate levels across the site and these can be shown at predetermined intervals as required. Generally topographical and site surveys are used for planning and design for Architectural and Engineering purposes.
Every site is different and each client has specific requirements and needs to be addressed. At Murphy Surveys, we pride ourselves on our ability to consult with our clients and ensure that the information is nothing but accurate in all instances. We use the latest surveying equipment including the new Trimble SX10 3D Scanning Total Station.
Topographic Survey Applications, Benefits and Deliverables
Topographic surveys are highly accurate, and drawings are generated quickly and accurately. The survey process is non-destructive, and deliverables can be produced in a large range of formats. All topographical surveys can be developed to suit the clients budget.
Topographical surveys have many applications including detailing surfaces & topography for engineering works, recording the condition of projects at different stages and recording the condition of buildings for conservation or historical records.
Topographical survey data is used for producing plans, sections and elevations and for establishing floor, ceiling and window levels. Data can be used to produce drawings for sale purposes, quality control, calculating Net Internal Areas (NIA), making an accurate record of any building and drawings for certification purposes.
Outputs data can be delivered in a format to suit your specific needs and technologies. These include 2D and 3D Plan Drawings, sections, profiles and volumes, Autodesk Civil 3D surfaces, MX GENIO and LandXML outputs, 3D Modelling, 3D Animation/Fly-Through Videos, 3D Visualisation and Building Information Modelling (BIM).
