Land Surveying

Land surveying is the art and science of establishing or reestablishing corners, lines, boundaries, and monuments of real property (land) based upon recorded documents, historical evidence, and present standards of practice. Land surveys are a necessary tool for determining property lines and the location of a property's features. Without land surveys, there would be no way to know where one piece of land ends and the other begins.

Diamond Shores has multiple crews of talented Surveyors with the expertise to assist with a wide range of services that suit your every need and requirement and successfully complete your project.

The Services we Offer:

Asbuilt Survey: A record of location of the improvements “as they are built” during construction; such as sewer pipes, buildings, utilities and pavement.  They document the actual results of the construction project rather than the planned layout shown in the project design and are critical for project closeout.

Boundary Survey: A boundary survey is an important component of pre-construction due diligence. The boundary survey establishes the perimeter of a property as it relates to a site's legal description. A boundary survey can also indicate any existing easements or encroachments and may show the limitations of use imposed by state or local laws.


Topographic Survey: A topographic survey locates all surface features of a property, and depicts all natural features and elevations. In essence it is a 3-dimensional map of a 3-dimensional property showing all natural and man-made features and improvements. Specifically, it shows their location, size, height and any changes in elevation.

Topographic survey data is used to create maps of the future for local, city, state, and federal use. New road construction, housing construction projects, or land registry data submission cannot be accomplished without topographic data.

ALTA Surveys: ALTA stands for American Land Title Association 

The ALTA Survey is a detailed land parcel map, showing all existing improvements of the property, utilities, and significant observations within the insured estate. It requires extensive research so that we can certify that we are showing all easements, encroachments, and improvements on the property for the title company.

Tree Survey: Used to map and specify the location of different trees on a property. These surveys are conducted for a variety of reasons, but are generally performed in conjunction with new residential construction and land development projects.

Construction Staking: Also known as “Construction Layout,” is the process of analyzing and interpreting architectural and civil engineering plans and calculating appropriate offset survey points and elevations.

land subdivision

Machine Control Services: Used to accurately position earthwork machinery based on 3D design models and GPS systems, and thus aid machine operators.

Parcel Subdivision: Used to regulate how parcels of land are divided into developable lots, and how those lots are subsequently designed and laid out through the development process.

Elevation Certificate (EC): An administrative tool used by the NFIP to provide elevation information necessary to ensure compliance with community floodplain management ordinances.

Plot Plans: A plot plan is an architectural drawing that shows all the major features and structures on a piece of property. The information on a plot plan will generally include the following: Location of all buildings, porches, decks, sheds, swimming pools, landscaping features, and boundaries of the property.
