Topographic Survey

Topographic surveys are carried out using total station and GPS equipment in order to create accurate maps of archaeological sites and monuments. These can be combined with Digital Terrain Models (DTMs) to allow contour plots and hachure plans to be produced in GIS software.

Archaeological Surveys equipment pool includes Topcon total stations, CSI differential GPS, Penmap RTK survey grade GPS and Leica Viva GS10 GNSS using Leica's Smartnet correction service. Software includes both CAD and GIS packages.
