The term land survey have been used to refer to the profession and science off determining the three dimensional positions of a given location. Apart from the determination of the dimensional position, land surveying also determine the distances and angles that exist between locations. Individuals who have a profession in the art of land survey are refereed as land surveyors. Land surveying is carried out in order to establish maps and boundaries for ownership, surface location and other sub surface features which are demanded by the national government or by law during the sale of a given property. The practice of land survey is carried out by use of elements like geometry, physics and engineering metrology. In order to carry out the practice special purpose equipment are employed which include the AGS Trimble GPS which operates by use of Trimble GPS unit.
The art of land surveying has beginning existence from the beginning of recorded history. Land surveying has proved very necessary before the execution of any form of constructions. The practice of land survey has also proved to be of little significance in transport and communication as well as it is considered an important tool for research across scientific disciplines. Equipment that are used in this field have undergone transformation as modernization has come into existence. The change in the design off equipment have led to the emergence of the global positioning system which operates by means of providing the Geo location of a given point. Transportation of the various land survey equipment calls for the use of shockproof casing and packaging materials so as to protect the equipment from any form of vibration as it may affect the functioning of a given equipment. It has been advised to transport land surveying equipment while they are packaged in their original packaging system.
Land survey equipment are accompanied by operator’s manual which are meant to simplify the use of a given equipment. It is advised that a copy of the operator’s manual be filled in a surveys office as these manuals prove to be very critical when it comes to the operation and handling of surveying equipment. The manuals are very useful as they describe the instrument and also recommend cases when the equipment should be employed. Any included guidance manual calls for careful reading in order to acquire better understanding of the equipment.
Also the use of the various land surveying equipment calls for continuous care during and after use. It is advised to always visually inspect for any damages before using any survey equipment. Also it is advise that one should regularly in accordance with the manufacturers’ recommendations.Surveying equipment, regular cleaning is recommended in order remove any accumulated dust which are likely to cause friction or uneven motion in the horizontal and vertical movements.
