A topographic survey is a type of land survey that accurately describes all natural and man-made features of a land parcel or a property. It includes details such as height, depth, size and location of the parcel, as well as the changes and contours that have been made to it from the perspective of elevation. Essentially, topographic surveys are all about elevation, as opposed to other types of surveys such as boundary (which focuses on horizontal measurements).
Topographic surveys are often used for a variety of projects within land development, architecture, construction, environmental restoration, and before the introduction of improvements to existing properties. They aim to assist with geographic planning and civil engineering, among others.
