A topographic survey is done when elevations of the property are needed. It can be used to determine contours, elevation on existing structures and to determine volumes. Topographic surveys are needed for site development.

Topographic Survey – Establishing Data For Aerial Topography

A topographic survey can be as simple as assuming an elevation on an object and relating it to other features on the property or it can involve establishing horizontal and vertical control for aerial topography on known elevation datums.

Once completed, the topographic survey can be used to determine contours, the elevations and heights of existing structures, volumes, site development quantities, roadway design, flood zone determination and other elevation related design.
