Topographic Surveys are maps depicting the slope of a subject site. We depict the slope of the land utilizing “contours”. These contours are usually shown at a one foot contour interval on our maps. This type of survey is critical for civil engineers to use in designing improvements for a site. All decisions related to the design of the proposed improvement are made utilizing this data.

addition to contours, all other site information is depicted as well, including the location of existing buildings, drives, parking areas, spot elevations, etc. We can make our survey as detailed as the client requests. Some additional items we may include on our topographic survey are tree location and identification, utility location, and wetland location.
