Surveying is the science of accurately determining points in terrain and the relative position of various features both on the land and underground and determining the distances and angles between each point. Land surveyors conduct a detailed inspection of the land and gather pertinent information by performing in-depth studies including taking measurements, researching legal documents, analyzing historical documents, conducting data analysis, making observations, filling out questionnaires, establishing property boundaries, and examining building plans.

Surveying determines the relative positions of objects or varying points on the earth’s surface. A “point” may be any physical object such as a ditch, storm drain, road, culvert or property corner. Distances and varying directions determine the horizontal positions of each point. Vertical points are determined by differences in elevation of the land. Whether your project requires a simple boundary survey to define your property line, a topographic survey to detail the terrain, or a flood survey for insurance purposes, you can count on Tucker Engineering to provide you with precise data.
An elevation certificate documents important features of your property, including whether it’s located within a flood zone, its precise location, building attributes and the elevation of a building’s lowest floor. This information is crucial and often required by insurance companies to determine flood insurance premiums.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is an official source for flood hazard maps.
