A land surveyor measures, collects and interprets data about your parcel of land, including information about your boundaries, buildings (if any) and land features (man made or natural features). Often times, the job combines working in an office and working on the site. Depending on the land and how it is being used, a land surveyor may need to work shifts or out of hours.

Surveyors make use of the handheld GPS units and automated systems to collect relevant information about the topography, including the use of a system of satellites that locate reference points with a high degree of precision.
Surveyors use a variety of measuring equipment to mark and document the legal property lines. This prevents and resolves disputes between neighbors.
The maps and documents are legally binding and can be presented in a courtroom setting. It is our intention to keep things as simple as possible, but for your own convenience, we perform additional research when necessary!
