Global Land Survey Equipment Market: Market Overview:

Land surveying is the process of adopting both onsite and offsite techniques to map and measure a predetermined area. Boundary survey, aerial survey, location survey, construction survey, topographic survey, and hydrographic survey, among others are some of the major types of surveys conducted across different end-use industries, such as construction and mining. Furthermore, the use of surveying techniques to collect data for mapping has created the chance to increase the variety and mass of achievable information. Geometric modelling and surveying are now accessible through the availability of real-time monitoring systems based on digital photographic techniques, GPS, robotic total stations, satellite, high resolution satellite imagery, and terrestrial laser scanners devices. Therefore, land survey equipment play a critical role in extracting related surveying information.

Mining surveying is the most crucial mining operation as it provides information about tunnel and mine operations. The mining and construction industry typically operates in a cyclic fashion with strong growth periods where owner-operators are looking for attempts to identify opportunities to improve productivity while reducing costs. Furthermore, adoption and manipulation of digital data – being the first step of innovation – helps in collecting data through a wide array of sensors and sources, which can be readily available to the broader enterprise for overall productivity enhancement. Collecting and positioning of spatial data are the two specific areas where survey finds application. The growing requirement of unmanned aerial vehicles and laser scanners that create data, along with software solutions that manage, analyze, display, and maintain spatially-located digital data are now required in the era of big data and new technology introduction.

Global Positioning System (GPS) is used to measure the three-dimensional position of a point anywhere on the Earth with the help of over twenty orbiting satellites to reliably measure the portable satellite receiver position. Advanced data reduction techniques and two or more satellite receivers can be used to provide high accuracy during work. Unlike traditional surveying techniques, GPS measurements do not require inter-visibility between different points, can provide horizontal and vertical position of the point in one go, and high accuracy measurement at any time of the day and in almost any weather condition.
