Land measurement for planning and development purposes, Guidance Note, Global 1st edition, Published by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) in May 2021, states: ‘A measured survey is carried out using precise surveying equipment that can measure and fix position, linear dimensions and shape. This may be achieved using equipment that measures angles and distances, such as an electronic theodolite/total station, or that fixes coordinates using satellites (GNSS). Drones are increasingly being employed for this purpose. The specification for undertaking the survey and the output accuracy should be fully understood.’
