Topographic Surveys

At Shilts Land Surveying we work with landowners helping them realize the full potential of their land and assist them in planning future improvements to their property. Topographic surveys create maps that show ground elevations of the property either by spot elevations or contour lines.  These maps are useful tools to landowners for the preparation of their land for future design.


Topographic Surveys are often used by other professional services that you have hired or may be hiring.  We will work closely with your engineer, architect, landscaper, or contractor to provide the information they need to do their job correctly.  Some of the areas that topographic surveys can be helpful are:

New building construction or additions

  • Designing future building locations

  • Determining proper building floor elevation

Designing driveways and roadways


Designing adequate water drainage


Designing landscaping features

  • Ponds

  • Patios

  • Retaining walls
