Surveying basics

WHITEPAPER:
Surveying, as defined by the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ACSM), is the science and art of making all essential measurements to determine the relative position of points or physical and cultural details above, on, or beneath the surface of the Earth, and to depict them in a usable form, or to establish the position of points or details.

Through the years, a number of different measurement methods have been used to collect this data. However, as the need for more accurate measurements has evolved, advanced 3D technology has become available to meet existing needs, and provide comprehensive documentation that was not previously possible through traditional methods.
