Introduction

Experts in this field are professional land surveyors who are able to provide accurate measurements and data in relation to the delineation of property and construction site boundaries. These experts have specialised knowledge at preparing and maintaining sketches, maps, and reports of legal descriptions of surveys. They provide data relevant to the shape and contour of the Earth’s surface for engineering, construction and map-making projects. The conclusions that land surveyors reach in their measurements are presented to clients and government agencies often to establish land and water boundaries for deed, leases and other legal documents. There are many types of surveying that land surveyors may take.

Land surveyors can be of great help to the legal process. They are able to provide accurate and reliable measurement data that can be used to in land, property, and construction disputes. Their evidence would be largely useful in determining the boundaries of properties to understand whether certain parties overextended their proprietary rights. These investigations can often provide crucial evidence in these cases.

Experts in this area come from many professional backgrounds. Most will have come from a mathematically informed or engineering-based background themselves. Additionally, surveyors will have at least two years of practical surveying experience and will have been able to produce projects of which they have contributed to in demonstration of their expertise. The specific specialisation and background needed in your epidemiologist expert will be determined by the matter which requires examination.
