2D Topographical Surveys

Our 2D Topographical surveys are provided in line with RICS standards and can incorporate the following features. 

If there is a particular specification that you would like to meet, please send this to enq@geotecsurveys.com

Our Topographical Surveys are completed alongside our Underground Mapping survey works. 

What is a 2D Topographical Survey

  • Establishment of survey station control to OSGB36 (GPS) 
  • Spot heights & levels at various spacings 
  • Building detail including finished floor levels, elevations & levels for eaves and ridges

This tool also allows us to confirm the presence of metallic and conductive services that have already been detected through radio frequency detection / electro-magnetic locating (RFD / EML).
