GPS, computer aided drafting (CAD), laser scanning, and robotic survey systems are all powerful tools for land surveyors working in today’s construction industry. Let’s take a look at robotic land surveying equipment.
Robotic survey equipment has been around for some time, but it is continually being developed. New and innovative changes in the world of robotic equipment can make it challenging for land surveyors to keep up. When you need to hire a land surveyor, it is generally a good idea to choose a licensed professional who has experience with the more modern equipment. The use of robotic land surveying equipment greatly increases the accuracy of your survey and substantially reduces the likelihood of human error.
Robotic survey equipment and other technologies like AutoCAD Civil 3D, Robotic Total Stations, and Survey Grade GPS are becoming more and more the norm in the land surveying industry. Ask your land surveyor about what type of equipment they are using before they start working on your project. More traditional surveying equipment is still acceptable and often used, but can also be more costly due to the additional time involved in performing a survey with those types of equipment. Robotic survey equipment, on the other hand, makes the entire process more efficient by decreasing the amount of time it takes to complete a given project. It is estimated that a two-man crew can locate 200 points in one day with the robotic equipment. Additionally, crews using robotic land surveying equipment can work in the dark, foggy conditions, heat-waves and other elements that used to affect a land surveyor’s ability to perform a survey.
By making use of the advances in land surveying technology, land surveyors can complete surveys efficiently and with fewer errors. What matters most is that an accurate survey product is being delivered to clients in a timely manner.
All in all, robotic surveying equipment is beneficial to the industry as much as it is to the land owner or builder, and can benefit just about everyone. For more information contact us today.
