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.
