Legal And Land Surveys

A land survey is an invaluable asset for anyone concerned with their property rights, and an essential tool for anyone transferring property, refinancing or planning any property improvements. A licensed land surveyor will thoroughly research both the property’s legal documentation and field evidence. The property boundary will be monumented, and a Certificate of Survey will be drafted to clearly and accurately identify the property and associated rights.

We also offer laser scanning services that reduce disruption to the area and provide accurate data for project planning needs. Laser scanning can be completed at a safe distance from the work area and without any disruption to existing traffic.

Aeronautical Surveys

Our company is on the leading edge of performing land surveys for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airports Surveying-Geographic Information Systems (AGIS) Program. Our team has successfully completed surveys of dozens of large and small airports all across the country while strictly following the guidance and specifications for aeronautical surveys contained in the FAA Advisory Circulars (AC) for Airport Projects. Our aviation experts collect and process the field data, which gets submitted to the FAA and National Geodetic Survey (NGS) electronically via a web application.
