Construction services like land survey London date back almost since the idea of ownership.

Today, GPS and other technologies allow for a much more exact survey than it was possible a few decades ago.
One of the first examples of a land survey London using mathematics was in ancient Egypt. The Great Pyramid of Giza, which was built around 2700 BC, demonstrates their knowledge surveying techniques. After the Nile flooded the plains, ancient Egyptians redrew the boundary lines using basic geometry. Archaeologists found a land register that recorded the owners of various pieces of land and their locations and they have found it to be five thousand years old, meaning it was written or drafted in the year 3000 BC. These early efforts by the Egyptians were clearly years ahead of other civilisations and this also applies to other areas of technology. These surveys were based on geometry as well as simple declarations that they believed these boundaries to be correct.
In the Roman Empire, there actually existed an official position as a ‘land surveyor’ but they were called ‘agrimensores’. Texts describing their actions date back to the first century AD. They were known for creating impeccably straight lines and right angles using very simple tools; that is why they were referred to as being thorough and precise. After measuring these lines, they would dig a shallow ditch to represent the lines and quite amazingly, some of these ditches still exist to the present day.
