GPS SURVEYS

GPS surveys, or Global Positioning System surveys, are a type of land survey that uses GPS technology to accurately determine the location of points on the earth's surface. The GPS system consists of a network of satellites orbiting the earth and ground-based receivers that can receive signals from these satellites.

During a GPS survey, surveyors use GPS receivers to measure the coordinates (latitude, longitude, and elevation) of specific points on the ground. These coordinates are then used to create maps, boundary lines, and other geospatial data.

How is it useful?

  • Land boundary surveys: GPS surveys can be used to accurately determine the boundaries of a piece of land, which is useful for property owners, land developers, and other stakeholders.

  • Construction surveys: GPS surveys can be used in construction projects to ensure that buildings, roads, and other structures are located in the correct position.

  • Mapping: GPS surveys can be used to create maps of natural resources, transportation networks, and other features of the landscape.

  • Environmental monitoring: GPS surveys can be used to monitor changes in the environment over time, such as changes in water levels, land erosion, and vegetation growth.
