Who Is A Land Surveyor?

When you are going for construction, you need to know the land condition, boundary details, approach road, ground elevation and all other information of the ground. Mapping all these details is the job of a land surveyor. These people have their tools, and they measure the land for you. They will check the vertical and horizontal points on the ground, lines that will be constructed there, and angles between them. In short, surveyors check the land-primarily and make the precious measurement that will identify Boundaries and Topographic details of the land, which will let the Engineers do the construction projects. Once they give a green signal, the engineer appears.

He Surveys The Property:

With all these works, these surveyors survey the history of the property as well. They check whether the property belongs to a person, or there might be any problems that took place in the past. They also prepare maps of the land and surrounding areas. They prepare the map on demand of the construction professionals and engineers. Depending on their report, further construction takes place. This report is mandatory for handling any of the construction work across the world.

They Work Till The End!

Even after they present the report, they work closely with the civil engineer
throughout the project. So, before the building starts to build, they survey the land and get associated with the project until the last block is completed. Throughout this process, they keep in close contact with the construction professionals. If they find any problems handling the jobs, they can contact these land surveyors at any point in time.

Qualities Of A Surveyor:

  • Problem-solving is the most important and amazing feature of a land surveyor. Generally, every land has problems. These surveyors know nooks and bounds. They will find solutions to your problems. They need information about the place, and you need to provide them only.

Who Is A Civil Engineer?

Civil engineers do the construction part. They prepare the design of the whole building. Then they assign people to work. With the help of land surveyors, they will prepare the design of the building as per your specification. The work field of a civil engineer is not restricted to buildings only. They make roads, bridges, tunnels, airports, dams, water systems, and so on! From the beginning until the end of the project, the civil engineer supervises it and provides valuable inputs. Many think that they have quite similar job profiles to land surveyors, but there are huge differences.

Job Profile Of A Civil Engineer:

They check the report prepared by the land surveyor and then start working on the project. Once the survey reports come, the civil engineer quickly calculates the hazards and risks associated with the project. They also check the timeline of the project, as this is pretty important. Depending on the timeline and counting all the hazards and potential risks, they prepare a quotation for the client. Upon approval of the quote, they start working on the project.

A Difference Chart For Your Convenience:

Land SurveyorsCivil Engineers
Scope of work before the project starts: They check the land properly, survey the plain and the boundaries and prepare a reportScope of work before the project starts: Their job starts when the map of the land is prepared and the initial survey is done!
Use of tools: They use modernized tools to map the land. For the aerial mapping they use the latest drones. The land surveying evolved over years and now they club their solutions with efficiency of machines.Use of tools: Lots of modern instruments are there in the market for construction business. In construction, precision matters a lot. You need to offer an eye catching building to the client. For that, the latest technologies are needed to be used. Civil engineers do that!
Keeping your vaastu corrected: Lots of people want their project to be done as per the vastu plans offered by experienced practitioners. The land surveyors are your best friend for this.

The Working Relationship Between A Surveyor And A Civil Engineer:

A civil engineer can have backgrounds of constructional jobs, structural jobs, or anything else. But when you construct a house or a building, you need to hire a good civil engineer. From making designs on the page to preparing the whole thing in real life, you need an engineer in every step. The work of an engineer is incomplete without the valuable data from the surveyor’s end, though. Every engineer requires a surveyor for his job. A surveyor provides the land report throughout the project, and the engineer works on the projects depending on the engineer’s data.

Every construction project needed to be done in optimal locations. Without the report of a surveyor, the engineer cannot start his work. The surveyor always uses all his knowledge to find the proper positioning of the project. Before the project begins, blueprints are made. These surveyors help the engineers to prepare the blueprint with valuable information. They also provide information like boundaries and GPS coordinates etc. He gives accurate information about the land topography, and then only the civil engineer starts working on the project.

Once the project starts, the surveyor needs to maintain the measurements of the project. He needs to follow the civil engineer’s design to a T. Every centimetre and millimetres should be made according to the plan; the surveyor keeps an eye on it.


The task of a Civil Engineer and a Land Surveyor are intertwined. They need to work unitedly to finish a task excellently. They have separate job profiles, but they work together towards completing the job on time.
