What is Land Surveying?

Land surveying is the technique and science of accurately determining the terrestrial or three-dimensional position of points and the angle and distances between them.  These points are usually, but not always, on the surface of the Earth, and are often used to establish boundaries of ownership and create land maps.  Once these points are analyzed, the surveyor can determine how these points relate to any deeds and maps and present this information to the client.  To accomplish their objectives, land surveyors use elements of geometry, engineering, trigonometry, mathematics, physics and proper interpretation of real property law.
