Land Surveying in Trinidad and Tobago

In Trinidad and Tobago, land surveying" means any process of determining, mapping or planning the position of or locating a point, a parcel of land, a body of water, or a structure, in relation to survey marks or any other structure whether manmade or natural or determining, mapping or planning the dimensions or form of a parcel of land or body of water.

Land Surveyors carry out a multitude of surveys as part of the land development process. Surveying encompasses the specialized fields of hydrography, engineer surveying, cadastral and land management, photogrammetry, geodesy or cartography.

Development is defined in the Town and Country Planning Act as the act of sub-division of land. All legal transfer of land title requires that a sketch or plan accompany the registered document or instrument of the transfer. The cadastral plan provides a unique description of the subject of the transfer and identifies any physical encumbrance or hinderance that may affect the use of the land. Cadastral plans must be signed by a duly authorized officer called a Trinidad and Tobago Land Surveyor or historically called a Licensed Surveyor, and must be registered with the Director of Surveys.

The Cadastral Surveying

A cadastral Survey is the definition of land boundaries for the purposes of ownership or transfer of ownership of land. ('cadastral surveying" means determining the form, contour, position, area, shape, height, depth or nature of any part of the earth or of any natural or artificial features, and the position, length, and direction of bounding lines on, below or above any part of the earth for the purposes of making legal plans defining boundaries and registering land or documents with appropriate authorities. This type of survey can only be executed by a TTLS. In commissioning a cadastral survey care should be taken to ensure that you are dealing with a person registered as a TTLS.

Engineering Surveying

An Engineering Surveyor is the professional who practices in the fields of Data Collection and Setting-Out. The Draft Land Surveyors Code of Best Practice (2000), provides the guidelines for the conduct of engineer (Click here). Engineering surveys cover a wide cross-section of infrastructure projects in the built environment such as roads, buildings and drainage infrastructure.

Hydrographic Surveying

Hydrographic data is important for coastal zone management, environmental monitoring, resource development (including hydrocarbon and mineral exploitation), legal and jurisdictional issues, ocean and meteorological modelling, engineering and construction planning, intercoastal tidal and many other uses. Hydrographic surveys provide mapping of coastlines and waterways to ensure safe passage/navigation and frequently have to meet international standards such as the “IHO Standards for Hydrographic Surveys, Special publication No. 44”.

Photogrammetric Surveys

Photogrammetrists utilize data acquired from remotely sensed platforms such as aircraft, drones, satellites and other sensors in the visible and non-visible spectrum to produce survey reports and maps. An “Aerial Survey” means the collecting of information about land or marine topography or resources through the use of airborne vehicles, equipped with recording devices such as cameras, scanners or other recorders utilising any electromagnetic medium. This type of surveying maps large areas where individual surveys via cadastral and engineering means may not be practical.

Geodetic Surveys

Geodesy is the science of accurately measuring and understanding three fundamental properties of Earth: its geometric shape, its orientation in space, and its gravity field, as well as the changes of these properties with time. Geodetic measurements are made using a variety of satellites, ground-based sensors and receivers, laser ranging devices, radio beacons, radio telescopes, and data-integration methods—a set of tools collectively known as the precise geodetic infrastructure. The geodetic infrastructure provides accurate information about fundamental properties of the Earth as they change over time. Geodetic networks enable piecemeal mapping and surveys to be woven into a seamless surface to cover the national and international scale.
