Whether you are planning to build on land or purchase property, it makes sense to have it surveyed before you proceed. That way, you can get to know the land in a more detailed manner and build your property without any worries. The survey method will typically depend on the type of property you intend to use and your time constraints, but these days, there are versatile 3D land surveying techniques that can be used across a range of applications. With 3D land surveying, you can get quick and accurate results on the land that has already been used or constructed, but requires further examination for remodeling, destruction, construction, or renovation.
The three-dimensional land surveying method is currently the most advanced and updated among all the land survey techniques. It is a high-definition survey system that provides accurate results swiftly, making it a valuable asset to surveying architects, project developers, and builders who need to make informed decisions fast. The survey uses a high-end software to allow the viewing and exploration of the scanned 3D images. The same platform provides panoramic images and other critical measurements, like markups. You can view high-definition 360 by 320-degree photo-realistic panoramic scans from the results, too, in case you require a more detailed look at your property.
There are many applications to 3D land surveying techniques. They are used for the creation and updating of as-built documentation, as well as for damage and condition assessment of a property. The results can aid architects and engineers in creating 2D plans. Likewise, the data is exchangeable with various CAD platforms. Survey data offers full 3D CAD models quickly and accurately from point clouds, and the results are useful as a guide when performing inspections on the land. 3D land surveys may also be used for 3D semi-automated modeling, deformation analysis, tank/vessel volumetric information, and weld peaking reports.
There are no restrictions as to what stage in the land development process can 3D land surveying techniques be applied. The survey can be used for the project in various developmental stages, such as planning, initiating, upgrade, and conclusion. As long as you work with the right team of surveyors, the 3D HD survey will be the most versatile tool that can help you make the best decisions about your land.
