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 of land, land survey is also used in the determination of distance and the angle that exists between locations. A person who specializes in practicing surveying I referred as a land surveyor. The practice of land surveying is practiced to establish maps and boundaries for ownership, surface location of subsurface features which are required by the state government or by the law during property sale. 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 occurrence of land survey has been into existence from way back then till now and is still being practiced as it is necessity during building construction an also a requirement by the law during sale of immovable assets. The practice of land surveying has been recorded to be a requirement before initiation of any building construction. Land survey as prove some significance in transport, communication and also in research in scientific disciplines. Equipment that are used in this field have undergone transformation as modernization has come into existence. The revolution of land survey equipment have led to the discovery of the global positioning system which operates by providing the Geo location of a specified position. Transportation of land survey equipment call for effective shockproof casing and packaging materials which are meant to protect the equipment from vibration in the course off transportation. It is advisable to retain the equipment in its original manufacturers packaging systems.
All survey instruments are accompanied by a furnished operator’s manual which is mostly available in the digital format.It has been noted that all survey equipment’s come with a furnished operators manual. The operators manual have proved to be very effective when it comes to handling problems arising from the use of a given equipment. The manuals are very useful as they describe the instrument and also recommend cases when the equipment should be employed. This given operation manual demands that it be thoroughly studied before handling any survey equipment’s as it provides advice when to particular field checks and adjustments are to be made.
The use of survey equipment’s calls for routine and care during and after handling. Inspection of damages before using any equipment has been regarded to be very be very necessary before handling any equipment. In the course of using a given the practice of frequent cleaning is normally carried out in accordance with the manufacturer’s specification.Cleaning is carried out for the purpose of removing dust particles in order to avoid occurrence of unwanted friction.
