Scientists at the University of California predicting earthquakes with the help of land surveying

May 5th 2015 at 4:53 AM

Land surveying is one of the essential processes used in land development projects. It is critical to the building of public infrastructure and the construction of residential and commercial properties. These days, land surveying is mandatory. It is indispensable to improving the integrity of structures, especially when earthquakes are concerned.

UCLA scientists discovered a link between earthquakes and land surveying. They found that the functions of land surveying, such as measuring the angles, locations, and distances, may help in providing information on the occurrence of an earthquake. Scientific principles and prior experiences support these observations. These findings are promising, and the data yielded is extremely helpful when it comes to studying earthquakes and predicting them.

Earthquake prediction is a specialty under the scientific branch of seismology, and it seeks to determine the specific location, time, and magnitude of upcoming earthquakes. This way, sufficient warning can be issued for everyone's safety. Earthquake prediction is typically performed with sophisticated machinery and specialized equipment, but despite advancements in technology, it is still impossible to pinpoint exactly when the next earthquake would occur. However, there are ways that we can minimize or at least prevent extreme damage to structures. Land surveying is one of them.

To make sure that land surveying is properly conducted, you need to hire reputable land surveyors that follow nationwide standards of land surveying, mapping, and planning. Professional land surveyors use the most advanced equipment and techniques for public and private land surveying. This way, you can get the right property related information and the right land dimensions.

Look for land surveyors who use proven and significant land survey techniques, like telecom surveys, topographic surveys, the ALTA Land Surveys / ASCM Land Title Surveys, subdivision plats, and condominium mapping. Land surveyors that use powerful technologies like high definition scanning or 3D laser scanning can accurately and quickly perform land surveying and provide the results fast. Hence, you can save countless hours and resources for land surveying.

High-definition land surveying, 3D laser scanning, environmental surveys, and ALTA surveys can provide exact calculations and create 3D drawings for your project. The data can help you make more informed decisions about the plan design and location. Surveying may help pin point trouble areas or the presence of a fault line or proximity to it. Land surveying can also help determine earthquake sensitive areas so you can avoid building on them.
