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.

AnswerIn 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."

1. Plane surveying. 2. Geodetic surveying. The surveying in which the curvature of the earth is not considered is called plane surveying. The surveying in which the curvature of earth is taken into account is called geodetic survey. for very large area surveys such as national boundary survey, laying national highways geodetic survey is carried out.

Plain surveying means the survey in which earth surface is considered as to be flat or plain i.e. its curvature is ignored. Geodetic survey is the survey in which curvature of the earth is taken into count and then surveying is done.
