Land survey using GPS

We can provide the following:

  • Topographic / land surveys for large or small sites
  • Boundary surveys for land registry uses and boundary disputes
  • 2D or 3D outputs
  • Area and volume calculations
  • Contouring
  • GPS control schemes
  • Ordnance survey coordinates – OSGB36


Traditional techniques for a topographic survey would be to use an electronic total station and/or a GPS receiver/rover for providing coordinates to OSGB36. This is the best method where accuracy is required and to ensure important features aren’t missed.

Laser scanning can also be used for some sites and is particularly effective for showing “hard detail”, care would need to be taken to ensure a control scheme is in place for accurate registration of scan data.

For some sites, a drone/UAV can be an effective solution perhaps when time restricts “boots on the ground” survey techniques, or the site is large and only limited information is required. GPS can be used to provide a control framework for the drone.


All standard 2D CAD formats are catered for, 3D surveys can be provided in string formats, contours, meshed models or surfaces.


How accurate is Ordnance Survey mapping?

The simple answer is not very! A 1:1250 scale plan can be 0.5m out, whereas a 1:2500 scale plan can be 2 metres out. In fact a width of line at those respective scales is 0.3 & 0.6 metres. Visit the land registry web site for more information.

How experienced are you in land surveying?

Again, simple answer, very! Warren has been producing and managing land surveys since 1993, he has an enormous amount of experience in small or large surveys, 2d or 3d and is extremely capable of providing the right solution for your project.
