The service performed to determine the configuration, relief or elevations of a portion
of the earth's surface, including the location of natural and/or manmade features
thereon. A topographic survey is necessary in order to prepare an accurate topographic
map and requires the expert skill of a Registered Professional Land Surveyor well
versed in maintaining accuracy and precision in detail mapping. Unless noted to
the contrary, a topographic survey is not intended as a boundary survey, although
some boundaries may necessarily be defined.
