A topographic survey gathers data about the natural and man-made features of the land, as well as its terrain. Permanent features such as buildings, fences, trees and streams accurately define the ground and its boundaries. Land contours and spot levels show the elevation of the terrain. Topographic maps are used by architects, engineers, building contractors and others to accurately visualise their sites and help bring forward development.
General topographical maps usually have scales ranging from 1:50000 to 1:250000. These are small-scale maps. In most countries, 1 :50000 maps are now available. You can use these for general planning of aquaculture development, including the planning of your fish-farm.
To show greater detail, plans are drawn to a larger scale, showing individual structures or land areas. The scales most often used in plans are 1 :500, 1 :1000, 1 :2000, 1:2500 and 1:5000. Detailed engineering drawings use scales much larger than 1:500, for example 1: 100 or 1: 10.
Topographic works also include planned and combined surveys, plus Geodetic Leveling.
The results of the topographic survey are presented as contour lines on a site map, and can be enhanced by computer software to provide interactive views.
Topographic surveys can be used to determine and plan features such as drainage ditches, grading, or other features, using the natural landscape as the basis for such improvements. Engaging a professional surveyor to conduct a topographic survey prior to real estate transaction or the commencement or a construction project will ensure that the land’s features will be suitable for its intended use. A topographic survey can also provide valuable insight in to how a site’s previous or current use affected the land, enabling better planning for future use.
