Everything you need to know about finding a Land Surveyor

There are several types of surveyors and they all have one thing in common: they all measure and draw what the earth’s surface looks like.

A land surveyor first assesses then analyses geographical information used in the planning and construction of new building structures. They are the leaders of surveying parties, measuring land, air space and water areas, including the airspace that is allocated specifically to airports.

A land surveyor is responsible for:

  • Marking all land boundaries.
  • Creating new boundaries when a development is being planned, or when land is sub-divided on both public and private properties.
  • Calculating land size and shape.
  • Observing and measuring the surrounding natural environment to produce data that is used to plan the development.
  • Ensuring data compiled is done so in accordance with the code of practice.
  • Producing maps, files, charts and reports.
  • Planning, measuring and managing construction work sites.

Equipment used by land surveyors includes:

  • Theodolites - to measure angles
  • Electronic distance meters
  • Tapes
  • GPS units - to measure land and define boundaries.

Once the analysis is complete, a land surveyor will then proceed to draw up the plans for their client. If required to do so, they will lodge these plans with the state government, who keeps a record of all boundaries in the state’s cadastre (the governments register of all interests in land and property).
