Points of Consideration When Looking for 3D Laser Scanning Services

Sep 4th 2015 at 12:35 AM

Professional land surveyors render highly skilled and technical services in compliance with applicable codes, laws, regulations, and court decisions duly established by your federal, state, and city authorities. In cases of land controversy, the firm you choose can appear as an expert witness, whenever necessary. This is why it is critical that you find a professional firm that assumes responsibility for the accuracy of their work and their professional opinion.

Finding a firm that can provide you with comprehensive 3D laser scanning and land surveying services can be just as daunting as finding the right contractor for your construction project. There are many things that you should consider and remember when in the market for a reliable surveyor, one of the first should be proper licensing and certification by duly appointed boards and authorities.

There are also minimum standards that have been established for mortgage title inspections and boundary surveys to help protect the public from substandard and inferior surveying. These standards mandate different requirements and procedures for the conduct of various types of surveys as well as the types of information they should produce and provide to the client. Look for a surveyor that ensures compliance not only with minimum standards but other codes and regulations that authorities have set to ensure quality data.

A reputable land surveyor is not hard to find, if you know exactly what to look for. Municipal governments often have a good listing of licensed professionals that you can consider. Other reputable sources would be abstractors, realtors, bankers, and attorneys who have good access to surveyors they have worked with in the past or still render their expert service with them. Recommendations from friends who have recently retained the services of a surveyor are also reliable. When making your decision, consider the land surveyor's reputation, experience, availability, and service quality instead of merely looking at the costs and fees associated with their services.

While it is important to consider your budget, cost should be secondary criteria to your choice, because subpar services from your survey professional can lead to even more damaging and costly troubles down the line, especially when the data they provide don't reflect accuracy. Retaining the services of a surveyor will require you to provide them with a copy of your deed or at the very least, a copy of your property's legal description. This will help them set the boundaries for their survey.
