Surveying is the branch of civil engineering which deals with measurement of relative positions of an object on earth’s surface by measuring the horizontal distances, elevations, directions, and angles. Surveying is typically used to locate and measure property lines; to lay out buildings, bridges, channels, highways, sewers, and pipelines for construction; to locate stations for launching and tracking satellites; and to obtain topographic information for mapping and charting. It is generally classified into two categories: Plane surveying (for smaller areas) and Geodetic surveying (for very large areas). Surveying is the art of making suitable measurements in horizontal or vertical planes. This is one of the important subjects of civil engineering. Without taking a survey of the plot where the construction is to be carried out, the work cannot begin. Dalhousie provides all type of location in a platform .
