Discovering The Truth About Surveyors
When it comes to land surveys, we want you to know that this kind of thing has been existing for a very long time now, starting from the day many of us come to a realization that holding on to their own land is of utmost importance and essentiality. And of course, when land surveys are conducted, this is not only about asking questions to the owner and all, it also involves measuring the land so that owners will know how big or how small their land, hence land surveying tools were created. However, the land surveying tools used by the ancient people went out of fashion and was later brought back to life again during the Middle Age. Then reason behind why land surveying tools were brought back is because of the renewed interest of land owners to hold their land, not to mention that they want to know as well how much they had and to make sure that there was no on one land that they owned.
If you are going to compare the land surveying tools and equipments used in the past with what we have now, you will see how they are very similar with each other, with the only difference being that the present equipments are touched with the latest technology. With the age of modernization and technology in the middle of its zenith, these equipments are going through some drastic changes, and of course, the computer is the one responsible for reforming this industry.
There are lots of land surveying materials being used before and even now such as the theodolite, a land surveying tools known for being one of the most popular and most commonly used one. Not too long ago, theodolite, albeit the fact that it was more technologically advanced than other equipments, were used in conducting a wide range of land surveys. With the passing of time, there are now so many changes and improvements happening towards theodolite and one of which is it turning into an electronic one. And because of the many changes and improvements that happened on the part of theodolite, it also takes a different name which is now EDM or electronic measurement device (oftentimes referred to as total stations).
Another land surveying equipment that brought the industry into the age of computers is the GPS surveying. When we say GPS, it actually stands for Global Positioning System and is using satellite technology.
