Topographic surveys are an important part of the planning process for new construction of review of the impact which existing construction has on the surrounding area. These surveys can be used for calculations to help determine if and where grading work needs to be completed, if construction equipment will have the proper amount of clearance around equipment, or to determine if a proposed site will meet the needs of the project. This kind of survey can include a variety of features including but not limited to; ground elevations and features such as ditches or ridges, above ground structures such as buildings, utilities including power lines, piping or valves, hydrographic studies of waterways or bodies..
