SURVEY CONTROL: ENSURING ACCURACY AND CONSISTENCY IN GEOSPATIAL SURVEYING

October 3, 2023

Here at Spatial Dimensions, we pride ourselves on being geomatic surveyors and laser scanning experts, delivering top-notch measured building surveys, laser scan surveys, and underground utilities surveys. We truly believe in the power of survey control to ensure accuracy, consistency, and reliability in all our projects!

WHAT IS A SURVEY CONTROL?

Simply put, survey control forms the backbone of geomatic surveys. It involves establishing a network of precisely measured control points. These control points, often determined using advanced laser scanning techniques, provide a known and stable position. Reference points are known coordinates that are used to create a consistent coordinate system.  They ensure consistency and accuracy in geospatial surveying

WHY IS SURVEY CONTROL IMPORTANT?

  1. Accuracy and Precision: Survey control, combined with laser scanning technology, enables us to obtain highly accurate and precise measurements. Our laser scanning experts use cutting-edge equipment to capture detailed data of the surveyed area, ensuring that every nook and cranny is accounted for. By referencing this data to established control points, we achieve unparalleled accuracy ready to be delivered to architects, project managers and developers. 
  2. Spatial Referencing: Geomatic surveys rely on spatial referencing for seamless integration with other datasets and future surveys. The use of survey control ensures that our measurements align with established reference systems, such as the National Grid. This enables us to create comprehensive maps, and integrate data into geographic information systems (GIS) with ease. Survey controls are used in all of our surveys including measured building surveys (MBS), topographical surveys, underground utilities, laser scanning, monitoring and drone surveys. 
  3. Quality Assurance and Quality Control: Our team of experienced measured surveyors know that quality assurance and control are essential. Survey control provides a solid foundation for checking and verifying the accuracy of our measured surveys. We compare survey measurements to the known positions of control points, ensuring that any discrepancies are identified and corrected. This commitment to quality control ensures that our data is reliable and trustworthy.
  4. Coordination and Collaboration: Survey control facilitates coordination and collaboration among various stakeholders involved in a project. Whether it’s architects, contractors, or engineers, using the same control points ensures that all parties are working within the same reference framework. This coordination eliminates potential errors or discrepancies that may arise when integrating survey data from different sources.
  5. Time and Cost Efficiency: By incorporating survey control and laser scanning technology, we can save our customers valuable time and money. The accuracy and consistency provided by survey control reduce the likelihood of errors and inaccuracies, eliminating costly rework or revisions. Our unmatched efficiency and expertise in laser scanning and geomatic surveys mean that we can complete projects swiftly without compromising quality.
