Topographic land surveys are used to map and identify the characteristics of a parcel of land and measure their relative position to each other. This type of data is essential for project planning and design.
All relevant features are captured during this process. A topographic survey can include property lines, easements, right-of-way, streets, walkways, manholes, retaining walls, buildings, trees, and other features useful for property development and management purposes, and results in a topographic map showing contour lines and benchmarks to relay elevation and surface area data.
Features are both vertically and horizontally referenced and displayed relative to a standard coordinate reference monument known as a ‘benchmark’. These details will allow the developer to plan and design their development as well as to better understand the site conditions that could delay and/or cause issues during construction.
Challenger uses 3D Laser Scanning technology, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles as well as other survey methods to complete topographic surveys safely and efficiently. We have worked throughout Alberta, the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and the Yukon with some notable projects including:
- Calgary Zoo
- Calgary Internation Airport (YVR)
- Edmonton International Airport (YEG)
- Inuvik-Tuktoyaktuk highway
- Stoney Trail in Calgary
- Edmonton LRT expansion
- Hardisty Terminal
