Modern surveying equipment

Surveying is the technique, profession, and science of determining the dimensions and contour of the Earth’s surface. This science has existed in one form or another for decades; the pyramids in Egypt and Stonehenge in England are believed to have been created with the assistance of an ancient surveyor. It is an essential element of civilized society. Working with a combination of skills derived from physics, engineering, law, and the mathematics, surveyors are well trained to accurately measure flat and three-dimensional points, as well as the distance and angles between them.
