How many times have you been in the middle of permitting a project when it gets put on hold because the municipality needs more information? Maybe they want to know if the specimen tree on the neighbor’s property is going to be impacted by the development, or perhaps they want to determine flood elevations for the stream going through the site, or maybe they need a “distance survey” for a site.
If your surveyor used LiDAR to generate your plans, then you’re in luck. The data is already in the can. The surveyor’s CAD department can update the survey and issue a revision, typically within 24 hours. That’s because when the survey is prepared using LiDAR technology, all that information (and much more) is captured.
