Posted by Calvada on December 20th, 2016

A geodetic land surveyor is the first person you should hire when you need to establish the vertical and horizontal positions of points for controlling an installation site, project, GIS, study area, or map. You can find this professional at a reputable firm that offers a wide range of land and geodetic surveying services in California. A geodetic survey is a method that supports boundary determination, mapping, infrastructure development, resource evaluation surveys, and infrastructure development. Geodetic surveying services may be ordered for scientific reasons, too. Here are some of the things you should consider when hiring geodetic surveying services in California:

A seasoned local land surveying provider – Find a land surveying service provider who is licensed to work in California. Be sure to verify that license with the proper state authorities. Moreover, make sure they have at least a decade of experience in geodetic surveying. One of the leading land surveying companies in California has more than two decades of experience in providing geodetic and other land surveys in the state.

What is covered in the geodetic survey – An established and experienced geodetic surveyor will not hesitate to share more information on the survey that you need. Make sure their geodetic surveys can determine and verify three-dimensional point positions of fixed monuments, so you can have a reliable reference for construction and engineering purposes. Keep in mind that the geodetic survey will provide the basic framework for topographic mapping, construction alignment, and boundary demarcation when creating a site plan, so it needs to be very detailed. The survey can help in the monitoring and evaluation of external deformation in large structures, too.

The equipment used for conducting the survey – Hire geodetic surveying companies that are up to date with their equipment. Geodetic surveying services in California can be faster and yield accurate results with technologies like 3D high-definition scanning and 3D surveying.

Customer feedback – One way to verify the quality of the geodetic surveying services is to find out what other clients have to say about them. Hire service providers that have a lot of positive feedback and make sure they are highly recommended by their previous clients.
