It's best practice to hire a professional land surveyor for a topographic map.

There are several reasons why you might want to hire a land surveyor to create a topographic map of your property:

  1. Accurate measurements: A topographic map is a detailed representation of the land, including its elevation, contours, and features such as trees, bodies of water, and buildings. A land surveyor has the tools and expertise to accurately measure these features and create a map that is both accurate and up-to-date.

  2. Compliance with regulations: Depending on where you live, there may be regulations or zoning laws that dictate how your land can be used. A land surveyor can help you understand these regulations and ensure that your property is in compliance.

  3. Planning and design: If you're planning to build on your property, a topographic map can be an essential tool for determining the best location for your building and the surrounding landscape. A land surveyor can also help you understand the contours of the land and plan for drainage and other environmental considerations.

  4. Safety: A topographic map can help you identify any potential safety hazards on your property, such as steep slopes, bodies of water, or hazardous trees. By working with a land surveyor, you can ensure that these hazards are clearly marked on your map and that you have a plan in place to address them.

In summary, hiring a land surveyor to create a topographic map of your property can provide you with accurate and up-to-date information about your land, help you understand and comply with regulations, support planning and design decisions, and ensure the safety of your property.
