What is the difference between a location, boundary, elevation and a topographical survey?

A Location Survey shows the location of the improvements on the property in relation to the apparent boundary lines of the property. It generally involves a physical inspection of the property and is accurate to plus or minus a few feet. A Boundary Survey is used to identify a property’s boundary lines. In this type of survey, the surveyor will set (or recover) the property corners and produce a detailed plat or map. To accomplish this, the surveyor will research the public records and do research in the field, take measurements and perform calculations. An Elevation Survey shows the hight of your finished space above the flood areas and is used to determine if you need flood insurance. A Topographical Survey is made to determine the configuration of the earth’s surface and to locate natural and cultural features on it.
