Land surveyors serve businessmen, government bodies, and the masses since time immemorial.

A bit of history

Land surveying is an old practise. It came into existence from the time the need to section a land was required. With the absence and scare equipment it was difficult to determine the distances. The only equipment available was metal chains with links and even ropes, which was not enough to derive accurate results. However, it was considered to be an important parameter for surveying. The earliest accounts of surveying land extend back to ancient Egypt, when they would use basic geometry. It was the importance of land surveying which made land surveyors one of the most elite, and important people in the history.

Surveyors today and in the future

Over the course of 25 years, land surveying and the tools that are used have evolved with technology. Which is gradually putting an end to the manual procedures? Today, surveyors use 3D HD scanning to do most of the job. It works ultra-fast and accurate, delivering accurate reports.

The new High-definition surveying is the best means of collecting detailed and accurate as-built data. Based on latest, cutting-edge technology, in this survey a narrow laser beam is used to "sweep across" a target object. With that hundreds of thousands of closely spaced measurements can be taken in a matter of minutes. With these measurements the 3D image is displayed.
