Surveying Services

Geomatics Africa offers a multi-disciplinary range of land surveying services.

  • Creation of servitudes
  • Sectional title surveys
Topographic Survey

Topographic surveys are contour surveys used by architects and engineers for new dwellings or extensions of existing dwellings.

Engineering surveys are done to best determine the way forward with large-scale constructions such as the building of roads, apartments, malls and office complexes. These services may include:

  • Design compliance
  • Site set out
  • Constructed reporting

3D Laser Scanning

3D Laser Scanning

Geomatics Africa uses the latest technology in 3D laser scanning to add a new dimension to each of their projects.  

The 3D survey points collected, combine together to form a point cloud that represents the surface surveyed. Point clouds can be viewed in multi-hued colours (based on signal intensity return) or true colour from a digital camera. This technique provides a solution for the rapid surveying of inaccessible surfaces or complex geometrical details. The data can be linked in 3D to your site grid and matched seamlessly with topographical survey plans, elevations and sections.



Geomatics Africa is proud to have been involved in several top South African projects.

  • Romansbaai Beach & Fynbos Estate
  • Grootbos Private Nature Reserve
  • Silver Strand Golf Estate
