What is the purpose of land survey related to quantity survey?
Land surveying is the measurement, recording and mapping of the physical environment. For example measuring the contour of the land, location of trees, services and buildings, etc. Quantity surveying is the determination of how much (quantity) of each item is required to complete something. For example a house requires 20,000 nails, 200 metres of 50 x 100 wood, 120m2 of roofing iron, etc.

Surveying? land surveying is the measurment of land. land surveyors measure and mark property lines and create legal descriptions of property to establish deeds of land for official records. or it is art of determining the relative positions of distinctive points on,above or beneath the surface …of the earth, by means of measurement of distances, directions and elevations. Answer In the academic world general introductory courses are often called "Survey" courses. For example, "English Literature Before 1900" or "History of European Art" would be survey courses. . . the subject is so broad that only a general overview, or survey, can be taught. Non-survey courses would be more limited in scope, such as "Violence in Shakespear's Plays" or "Italian Baroque Art." survey means lines measurement & it is the art of determining the relative positions of points on,above or beneath the surface of the earth. written by Debashish Biswas (MORE)

A survey can be a set of questions asked of a demographic group toreveal statistical information about their habits. or It can be an examination of a premises, object or location in orderto gather information on worthyness for a purpose.
You could survey your own land but it is highly NOT recommend for multiple reasons. Land surveys are done by licensed professionals which perform the survey and prepare the maps and stamp them with a seal and signature. Land surveys are based upon information gathered at the county clerks office as …well as field measurements taken by extremely sensitive and accurate surveying equipment. Land Surveyors are overseen in most states by a sector of the state government and regulated by way of a professional organization or association, and carry errors and omissions insurance much like a Doctor would. Most banks or lenders require this oversight so as to be able to accept a certified survey from a licensed surveyor. I would recommend that you hire a surveyor to survey any land you are interested in purchasing. If you look at their insurance, labor and time spent, liability, and the use of expensive equipment, several hundred dollars for a survey is a very excellent deal. You couldn't survey your property yourself for less. Even if you're not a licensed land surveyor, you might assist later surveyors by patrolling your property lines and corners from time to time, making sure they are visible (staked, pinned, flagged, blazed, painted, etc) and use the opportunity to ensure they are not being obliterated, moved or trespassed.

Consider a rectangular shape. A traverse would set up an instrument at one corner and then measure the angle between the two other adjacent corners of the rectangle. In this case 90 degrees. The survey also measures the distance along one of those adjacent sides. Usually angles are measured in a clo…ckwise direction and the right side length would be measured. . The instrument is then moved to the corner you just measured the distance to and the procedure is repeated (clockwise angle and distance to next corner). Move to the third corner and repeat the procedure. Move to the fourth corner and repeat. . You have now measured four angles and four distances. If you did it right, the four angles should total 360 degrees. This is a math rule for any four sided figure. . In a real survey, the instrument would also be used to measure the angle from the last corner (back sight) to any points of interest such as boundary marker, building corner, etc. With trigonometry, the traverse is adjusted and then the x,y coordinates for each point of interest can be determined.

A survey does a lot as far as giving companies or peopleinformation on what consumers think. By using surveys, one can findout how others feel about the government, television, and aspectsof daily life.
A survey form is normally used to collect the view of people on agiven issue. It is a way of understanding more on what peoplereally want.
The text book definition of surveying is "The art and science of measuring angles and distances on or near the surface of the earth." When the term land is added, it takes on the added dimension of the laws related to boundary determination.
Lack of visual site distances is a big challenge. . A compass often doesn't necessarily work well underground asiron deposits affect things. . GPS doesn't work well underground. . Lack of a visual horizon makes it difficult to stayoriented. Also, Difficult to "loop" surveys to check results. C…aves/tunnels arelinear. Working underground is more hazardous (rock falls etc). Transporting equipment is harder. +++ From experience, the techniques differ so it's not a very faircomparison. Iron ore bodies and ferruginous intrusions can affect compasses, ina few areas, but it's not a very widespread problem. GPS does not work underground full-stop, any more than a portabletelephone or other portable radio will work, as these use VHF radiosignals that do not penetrate the ground to any extent. Caveradio-location of spot points from the land survace above them,uses a VLF induction method. GPS comes into its own for tying thecave survey to the surface topography, by locating the entrance(s)and other associated features. The lack of a horizon is never a cave-surveying problem, becauseyou sight the compass and clinometer at a lamp placed at the nextsurvey point, not at the cave feature itself. This also negates thefirst answer about lack of visual site distances, althoughzig-zagging meanders with very short sight-lines are very hard tomeasure accurately over their full length thanks to many small butcumulative and random errors. Caves are linear. Some are. Most contain at least one loop or otherclosure-giving feature, and there are well-proven methods fordistributing the errors in closing loops. However accuracy isindeed harder to obtain in a purely linear passage. "Hazardous". Well, yes, caves do contain natural, objectivehazards, though rock falls are rare. Most caving accidents arepersonal slips, trips or falls. Anyway the surface landscape cancarry its own hazards too! Difficult transport. No more so than any other caving equipment.Less so if anything. Don't forget a cave can only be surveyed bycavers of sufficient experience to negotiate the place anyway! Thebasic surveying tools are water-resistant notebooks & pencils,fabric builders'-type tape-measure, compass and clinometer; and thelast 2 are compact devices carried on lanyards worn round the neck. Modern cave surveying increasingly uses small, portable electronicrange-finders like the Leica "Disto" (trade-mark), which uses alow-powered laser. These are used by measuring to chosen points onthe cave walls, or heights to unreachable ceilings, rather thantarget-lamps. (MORE)
I think the guy below misunderstood a little. Quanity Surveying is concerned primarily with project cost where the number, amount, type of materials are counted and priced to provide project estaimtes, budget and cost control through the works. Generally considered to be a more mathematical role co…ncerned with number crunching and cost Building Surveying covers a broad spectrum of roles from measured survey and design, structural surveys, legal matters such as leases and party wall awards, contract running and site supervision etc etc. More of a site based role liasing with clients and builders. Both are types of job within the construction industry in the UK and many Commonwealth countries. . By "quantity surveying" I assume you are referring to surveys performed to compute the volume of some material such as sand, coal, rock, etc. "Building surveying" could cover a wide range of activities, depending on what you are building. The best short answer to your question is "accuracy". Volume surveys don't need to be exact - no one really worries if there are 4,000 CYD or 4,100 CYD of sand. However, when the steel beams arrive at the construction site, the bolts in the concrete foundation better fit into the holes on the beam. (MORE)

A land survey datum (plural datums) is a reference from which measurements are made. The reference in the form of a set of coodinate and a direction. The datum can be arbitary (assumed) or absolute. The arbitary datum point is a point whose coordinate and direction are not known, so an arbitary valu…e is adopted. All other coodinates of the survey project are connected together, but its datum point is not connected to a larger network. The absolute datum is a reference point whose coordinate and direction are already known within a frame of network. So the new survey become part of the network. (MORE)
The datum you start a land survey in will depend on the purpose of the survey, where in the world you are, and what type of instrument you are using.. If the purpose of the survey was for your own purposes and there was no need to have the survey in terms of any local, national or international dat…ums then a surveyor would usually do the survey in a local datum. A local datum is where the surveyor sets up a local control network (where all the locations the instrument is set up) and they either do not connect to a local datum or they do not worry about the local bearings and coordinates.. If the purpose of the survey requires to link into your local services (sewers, water, etc) then the levels and positions will need to be in terms of the local network (or networks). In some locations the level datum is in metres (or feet) above sea level, in other locations it may be 100 metres (or feet) above to avoid some elevations being below sea level (the old systems could not cope with negative numbers).. Every country has a set of different local and national datums. Take New Zealand for example, the national datums are NZGD 2000, NZMG plus 29 local circuits (with 2 different versions. Australia has around 18 local circuits with some having 2 - 3 different versions. The UK has the UK National Grid and UK UTM zones. Ireland has the Irish National Grid. And the list can go on.. The type of instrument you are using can also influence the datum you use. GPS for instance does all its calculations using WGS84 and then you can request it to display the results in the relevant local datum. (MORE)

Trigonometry is basically formula's to help you find out unknown sides and angles of a triangle. Surveying is measuring land. But as not all land is equal so these formula's are used to help.
Construction work is estimated at design stage (before work starts). This estimation is done by using tender drawings (not detailed, basic). Once work starts construction drawings are issued. These drawings show the full specifications of items of work/how to build the item (plans, sections, details…). The quantity surveyor will then re-measure the work which is being undertaken, with what was estimated at design stage (tender drawings against construction drawings). This will result in more or less of an item required, which will result in extra costs or a cost saving. (MORE)

There are many problems with surveying your own land. First, if you are a license/registered land surveyor you can survey your own land for personal reference but if you want to use the survey for conveyancing purposes a buyer would likely request a survey performed by an objective third party. If …you are not a licensed/registered surveyor this site is not intended to provide instruction in such complex areas of expertise as land surveying. You need specialized equipment and training to survey land "in the field". The information disclosed by the field survey is then converted by specialized software into a drawing of the land with the metes and bounds and abutters added by the surveyor. If you're not a professional surveyor no other person would accept your home made survey. You should perform a search for "land survey methods" sites to acquaint yourself with the complexities of land surveying. (MORE)

Surveys are a way to derive conclusions about various properties of a population. Population need not refer to people but can be other living things or inanimate objects. The alternative to a survey is a census, in which observations are taken for every member of the population. Because of its size…, a census is often very expensive and slow to process. A well designed survey can usually deliver estimates of the key variables that are very close to their true value at considerably greater speed and lower costs.

You need information to make decisions. That information can be obtained by doing a comprehensive study - a census - a smaller study - a survey. A census is likely to be much more expensive and slower to produce results. Although the results of a survey will be estimates of the true values, a well o…rganised survey can deliver sufficiently accurate results more quickly and cheaply. Surveys can be particularly useful for interpolation between censuses on which they are benchmarked - although when conducted, the survey is usually extrapolating. (MORE)
