A publicly appointed surveyor can take on publicly mandated surveying tasks as well as handling engineering surveying activities under private law. Publicly appointed surveyors can also be called on as certified inspectors in connection with surveying issues.
Particularly in connection with land assembly and replotting processes (also building land consolidations), comprehensive cadastral support is of great importance. In such processes, land plots are created in accordance with the building code that meet construction prerequisites in regard to their location, form and size.
The publicly appointed surveyors of our surveying office are experts in the fields of surveying and civil engineering. Often they work as independent experts, fulfilling statutory tasks for state authorities and the government. They also are authorized to issue notarizations and certifications. Therefore they are equivalent to a sort of public authority.
A surveying engineer can only become a publicly appointed surveyor after being nominated by the regulatory authorities. For this the surveying engineer must have the qualification to perform higher surveying functions. This is typically obtained through extensive professional experience in land registry and cadastral surveying over many years.
The profession of surveying technician involves many aspects of mathematics, physics and geography. Good technical understanding and a measure of manual dexterity are the best prerequisites for getting started in a surveying office. Particularly for people who don’t want to spend the whole day sitting in the office but would rather be outside working in the fresh air with precision and care, surveying technology can prove to be a perfect career choice.
Surveying technicians help with the determination of new land plots, the measurement of existing land plot boundaries and in the area of construction surveying. The geodata produced in these surveying activities are then visualized by the surveying technician at the computer in maps, plans and cadastres.
Surveying technology plays an important role particularly in the area of construction and engineering surveying and in civil engineering applications dealing with streets, bridges, tunnels and properties of all sorts.
Cadastral surveying plays an important role in everyday affairs. In contrast to engineering surveying, cadastral surveying is typically an official activity managed by the state.
In this work, new land plots may be formed, existing ones may be reviewed, buildings measured or usage boundaries defined. Because cadastral surveying is a function of the state, these activities are performed by the cadastral officials or by publicly appointed surveyors, depending on which German state the work is being done in.
An original land survey is part of the initial establishment of the cadastre. The new plot boundaries are determined and entered in the land survey registery.
Because altitude is not represented in the cadastre, only two-dimensional surveying needs to be done so that a coordinate cadastre can be prepared.
