Land surveying is a licensed profession requiring the use of mathematics, physics, and engineering to determine and establish land boundaries by precisely determining measurements such as dimensions, lengths, and boundary lines.
A Professional Land Surveyor (PLS) is a person who is qualified by education, experience and successful completion of examination required by the state department overseeing licensing regulation.
A growing number of digital applications encourage users to bypass professional land surveyors and utilize computer-generated GIS data. While the companies behind these applications are legally protected by complex disclaimers, consumers are being misled — and they’re the ones left paying. The average owner may not be aware of the dangers these apps pose.
Why Choose a Licensed Land Surveyor?
Hire a licensed land surveyor to protect your investment.
In any case of dispute, your surveyor is an expert witness in court and assumes full professional responsibility for the accuracy of your survey. The cost of the survey as a percentage of your total investment is small and a reasonable price to pay for peace of mind.
