Topographic Surveys

Topographic Surveys

Generally referred to as land surveys (and also known as “topos” in the trade), Pinpoint Mapping combines the latest in survey technology with a team of highly skilled and experienced land surveyors. Let us help you to achieve the development of your landscape or property. Our topographical surveys are all individually tailored to meet with your precise requirements. We deliver cost-effective detailed topographic surveys in digital formats (including PDF and DWG files) and where requested we can supply you with hard copy too.

Why Choose Pinpoint Mapping?

Pinpoint Mapping in Bristol specialises in topographical surveys for land and property development schemes. We use up to date robotic total station technology (TST) combining laser and GPS (Global Positioning System) equipment. This ensures each and every topographical survey we carry out matches your individual specification. All of our surveys are related to Ordnance Survey National Grid and are derived using OSTN15 and OSGM15 (for further information about this see here).

We pride ourselves upon offering our customers  value for money solutions and the delivery of quality topographic data in digital Autocad file formats or delivered in printed format  .

Our topographic surveys include:

  • Land Surveys
  • Highway Surveys
  • Boundary Surveys
  • Levels (Height of Ground Surface)
  • Volumetric Analysis
  • Earthworks
  • Land Registry Red Line Updates

Why Should You Commission A Topographic Survey?

Typically a topographic survey is required for the following reasons:

1. It serves as a base line when planning for a new land development
2. Preparing for a residential new build (or property extension) or a commercial construction project
2. Architects, local councils and planners all use topographic drawings to assist landscape design and building applications
3. A successful project development requires a highly accurate, a highly informative and a professionally presented plan
4. A surveyor-drafted topographic plan charts all visible features present at the property
