All about the types of Land Surveying Markers & Monumentations. Land survey markers or land survey monuments are objects that are placed in marking major survey points on the earth’s surface. They are placed for use during surveys and for possible following surveys to come. Markers are typically durable and are often intended to be permanent. They can be as straightforward as a chisel mark or nail to as complex as stamped metal disks that are set into concrete or rock pillars.

Summary: With the rapid advancement in the GIS field, land surveying has been easier in most aspects. Professional land surveyors provide data for the GIS and use the data to provide more accurate, and less expensive surveys. 

The advancement of GIS has resulted in a demand from clients of land survey firms to have all of their digital data delivered in a GIS format creating a need for many small and mid-sized firms to build and maintain a GIS department. Spatial data should be well documented so that it can be used for the application that is suited. 

Surveyors mine the GIS database of attributed geometry by following hyperlinks within the application environment. The GIS gathers information captured from previous surveys and projects to help users locate documentation and information quickly. Fast location and access saves time, reduces cost, and improves productivity. In the past 30 years, the pace of advancement for the computer-based software tools is so rapid that the surveyors can

Summary: Maps are for locating and managing your city’s information. GIS mapping has been used to create highly convoluted and accurate maps from the given data. There are many useful benefits of GIS mapping apart from creating detailed maps of the cities. Let’s see how GIS mapping can be used in so many different ways. 

A lot of industries around the world are using GIS virtually to create maps that communicate, perform analysis, share information and solve complex problems around the world. Maps have made the professional environment easier and more efficient. GIS technology applies geographic science with tools for collaboration and understanding. It helps to gain actionable intelligence from all types of data.

Some of the amazing benefits of GIS mapping include:

1. GIS Mapping Helps in Asset Management:

 A GIS helps in sorting the infrastructure and utilities that lie beneath the city’s streets, curbs and sidewalks. GIS mapping is used to make detailed maps of these utility areas, like

It’s fortunate that the world is realizing that common problems can’t be solved unless intervention is made and intervention is impossible without visualization, and thus without maps. Mapping is a central function of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), which provides a visual interpretation of data. This defines the power of “where”.  

To give you a brief idea, here’s what GIS enables:

  • Customer Service: Higher customer engagement and communication. 
  • Data Management: Collection, organization, and integration of data. 
  • Asset Management: Maintenance and management of infrastructure data. 
  • Field Mobility: Collection and assessment of data from the field. 
  • Operational Awareness: Data integration for operational readiness.
  • Planning and Analysis: Organization of data into actionable information. 

Map usage is becoming democratized with the creation and usage is not limited to the privileged few. As more and more people are realizing the importance of maps, in making the world a better place, more
