How Calling a Contractor Changed My Life

This might sound completely crazy, but the most important call I ever may was to a construction contractor. I can remember the day as if it were yesterday. I had decided to rebuild parts of my home. This involved removing part of the roof, knocking down a brick wall and removing some electrical wires and water pipes. I started out just fine but then I started to have problems. I realised I was in out of my depth and decided to call an expert. The contractor who came around was great and he quickly fixed up the mess I had made. Since that day, I have had a keen interested in construction contractors. I hope you like this blog.

Are you in need of a boundary survey?

Have you become locked in a boundary dispute with your neighbour? Maybe someone new has moved into a neighbouring property, and they claim to have discovered that their boundary fence is in the wrong place, allowing them to make use of what rightfully belongs to you? Perhaps, someone you have lived near for many years has suddenly claimed what you have always considered your property? Whatever dispute may have arisen with your neighbours, the easiest way to settle the matter and allow things to return to normal is to call a land surveyor.

How can a land surveyor help?

The job of a land surveyor can involve performing many types of surveys, but one of the most common duties of a land surveyor is to arrange for a boundary survey. A boundary survey involves examining the property on the ground and taking precise measurements. These measurements are compared with existing maps and the legal paperwork to determine precisely where the boundary falls between two properties. In some cases, the land surveyor may physically walk the property boundary to collect the measurements. At other times, especially where a large property is involved, the measurements may be collected using drones and GPS coordinates, which reduces the amount of time involved in data gathering and allows boundary disputes to be resolved much more quickly.

What's involved in data gathering with drones?

If you haven't come across drone surveying before, perhaps you are concerned about the accuracy levels of surveys that don't involve any physical presence on the land. However, drone surveys produce much more accurate surveys than would be possible any other way. Drones can fly over any terrain and take multiple pictures of the same location from different angles. Each photograph will have the associated GPS data attached so detailed information can be gathered about the entire area being surveyed. Eventually, both 3D and 2D maps will be created providing an exact representation of the area and locating the boundaries precisely where they should be.

What else can drone surveys reveal?

Drones can be used for far more than correctly locating property boundaries. Drones can gather large amounts of topographical data across land that could be difficult to traverse by other means. The thousands of data points the drone flight produces can create highly accurate maps that will show owners how their land might be developed or better utilised in the future.
