Topography expert witnesses and consultants have expertise in the process of mapping and/or illustrating the shape, terrain, weather, landscape, and other physical aspects of any type of environment, whether it is the result of natural or artificial causes. Topography expert witnesses are highly experienced with the various methods of mapping and land surveying, which may become relevant in the event of a land-related court case over several types of issues.
Topography experts often utilize numerous techniques while working within the field, such as GPS control, land surveys, topographic surveys, floodplain analysis, boundary surveys, and other means of surveying a geographical area. Such skills may be required for settling various court cases related to land disputes, including disagreements over land use, land ownership and boundary disputes, and making engineering and construction layout plans based on the results of a topographic evaluation and survey.
A topographic expert witness may also have a background in civil engineering, as topography is highly relevant in terms of planning and building civil structures for community use. Civil engineering, which includes the multifaceted process of land use planning and organization, is utilized in relation to topography, as the land must first be a proper fit for a civil construction process, as physical details in the environment may interfere with the building of a civil project.
