Do you need to subdivide lots? Cadastral operations are used for this purpose. They represent a property, assign it with an identification number, and determine its shape, relative position in relation to neighbouring properties, its dimensions and its area.
Are you planning to erect a building? Make sure you accurately locate the projected position of the new building while taking municipal regulations and the physical condition of the premises into consideration.
Do you need a description of a part of one or more lots? A technical description will establish the site of a right-of-way or lot of land that you and your neighbour want to exchange, for example.
Do you wish to secure a purchase or mortgage loan? A certificate of location will help you do just this. It includes a report and a plan which detail the surveyor’s opinion on the situation and the current condition of the property.
Do you need to identify the boundary limitations of a property? Staking is a service that involves placing survey markers on a lot to identify its boundary limitations. The boundary determination report, for its part, permanently establishes, amicably or judicially, a boundary between two neighbouring properties.
Are you seeking non-agricultural land use approval for land in an agricultural zone? You’ll have to produce a variety of documents that allow you to understand the project and the impacted land.
Do you need a cadastral plan that identifies the private and shared areas of a building? This plan is essential and should be the first step you take before publishing the rights relating to the private or shared areas of a building.
Do you wish to identify the boundaries of a property located in the forest to avoid disputes with neighbouring property owners? The concordance between the marks of occupation, the property titles and the cadastre must be analysed before the trees in the boundary can be cleared.
Are you taking on a residential development project? Drawing up subdivision plans is part of the initial phase of the project. These plans are used to configure, plan and implement residential development projects.
Commercial AND industriAl
Would you like your rental spaces to be calculated in accordance with BOMA’s standards? This service is used for buildings without a plan or that have been reconfigured and require an updated calculation of their surface area.
If you’re installing industrial machinery that requires millimetre precision, suitable instruments and methods must be used to ensure the success of your project. Microgeodesy makes it possible to achieve this high degree of precision.
Construction and utilites
Are you a contractor? Do you need to operationalize the construction of a building and the supervision of a building site? In Quebec, operators and site supervisors must have specific qualifications to carry out this type of mandate. The good news is that we have them.
Are you planning a project and need to determine the elevations of a lot? Levelling operations are used to measure altitude in relation to average sea levels or elevation in relation to a specific surface. The topographical plan, on the other hand, allows you to visualize a lot’s natural elevations.
Are you in charge of construction sites? Must the operations for which you are responsible be carried out correctly? Construction site supervision guarantees that your operations will be carried out in accordance with plans and specifications.
Do you need to determine the boundaries of a body of water? Hydrographic observations can provide answers to questions related to the positioning of riparian protection buffers and flood zones. Bathymetric sounders allow you to determine the depth and relief of a body of water.
Are you planning to develop your land administration system? It’s essential to integrate geographical, property, tax and land use information into a land administration system to efficiently structure the sustainable management of the territory and its resources. This procedure is also useful for urban development planning, the protection of individual and collective rights, development and securing investments.
Do you have important decisions to make regarding the management and sustainability of land? Geographic information can facilitate your decision-making processes involving development planning, environmental impact assessments or construction project planning.
Are you launching a project for which geo-referenced information will be used as a management tool? Geomatics can assist decision-making since it collects data, identifies relationships in the data and interprets the information.
Do you need to calculate measurements and surface area using aerial photographs for your project? Photogrammetry makes it possible to obtain precise relief images, dimensions and positioning information.
Are you a land administration manager? The implementation of a geographic information system converges descriptive databases with spatial representations.
Are you planning a major construction project? You probably have to refer to spatially-referenced data. To associate the data, you must first integrate it into an official coordinate system.
Do you need a map of road networks, waterways or other elements? Mapping is used to identify land use, road and river names, zone boundaries or to highlight any other relevant information.
natURAL Resources AND THE environMent
Do you need 3D images, or the volume or contour lines of an object or a space? 3D modeling and volumetry are the techniques used to acquire such data for surfaces and volumes of all sizes.
training and consulting services
Do your projects require training or consulting services in the fields of land tenure and cadastre? Since 2001, Ecce Terra has been one of the key players in the Quebec government’s Cadastre Reform Program. The company aims to support countries in search of their own land tenure and cadastre solutions. This mission was carried out for the first time in Colombia, Algeria and Mali.
Would you like to work with a partner who can integrate quality control procedures into your project? We have developed an expertise in designing automated applications that can validate data and deliverables.
Do you need help from project management specialists? We have the experience to train you. When it comes to project management, we believe in communicating effectively, managing change, and seizing and sustaining results.
Do your staff need to learn new techniques? Whether they need to master a piece of software used for computer-aided design, do land surveying or manipulate a drone and interpret the data, we can help them improve their skills.
