What Is Land Surveying?

Surveying has traditionally been defined as the science, art, and technology of determining the relative positions of points above, on, or beneath the earth’s surface, or of establishing such points. In a more general sense, however, surveying can be regarded as that discipline which encompasses all methods for measuring, processing, and disseminating information about the physical earth and our environment.

Surveying has been important since the beginning of civilization. Its earliest applications were in measuring and marking boundaries of property ownership, referred to as land surveying today. This continues today with the addition of construction surveying, route surveying, geodetic surveying, etc.
