A feature and level survey is conducted to find out the location of features and levels on a piece of land. This type of survey is usually used for construction projects so that buildings and structures are put up in the right places. Feature and level surveys can also be used for environmental purposes, such as figuring out how a proposed development will impact natural features.
To carry out a feature and level survey, we use different equipment, like GPS systems, lasers and traditional surveying instruments. We take measurements from different locations to create a map of the area. This map can then be used by architects and engineers when planning a construction project.
Feature and level surveys are critical when making sure construction projects are safe.
