Surveying deals with the measurements and determination of the position of different points on the earth. It comprises several engineering operations, which includes assessment and evaluation of all land information. It is to ensure that the construction of structures are positioned and built at the correct point relative to ground. Surveying determines relationships between different locations and derives all the information on the map for further study.
