Standard Boundary Survey

The core of our profession is defining and mapping occupational ownership, marking deeds, and opining issues regarding the construction and intent of those deeds. Our expertise as Licensed Surveyors can help determine the limits of one‘s described and deeded property and which, more often than not, is fully accepted by all adjoining neighbors. In the process of this work we are often obligated by law to create a survey map which must include evidence of occupation.


Forensic Boundary Survey

The core of our profession is defining and mapping occupational ownership, marking deeds, and opining issues regarding the construction and intent of those deeds. Our expertise as Licensed Surveyors can help determine the limits of one‘s described and deeded property and which, more often than not, is fully accepted by all adjoining neighbors. In the process of this work we are often obligated by law to create a survey map which must include evidence of occupation. The research we perform will typically include reviewing your deed and those of surrounding properties, road alignments and other public interests, shorelines, easements and other agreements and encumbrances, historical evidence, the public record (County Auditor’s office) , and available credible and pertinent testimony. A survey of this manner may bare witness to a difference between title and occupation. Our findings can assist the client and their neighbors in resolving and correcting any discrepancies. It may also serve as the primary tool used by the client and an experienced land-use attorney in clearing potential defects in title or in defending or asserting a claim of ownership.


Laser Scanning

3D Laser Scanning is quickly becoming the new industry standard as a way to make very accurate measurements in complicated environments. We have used our scanner with superior results when collecting data in areas such as roadways where safety and access are of concern. This is precisely why using this technology is the best solution for measuring as-built conditions. This instrument colects survey data points at a rate of 50, 000 points per second. It has an effective range of 400′ to 500′. With several “scan” setups inside a room or of a building, a complete 3D model can be made of the existing conditions. These models are then used to create 2D civil or architectural drawings, 3D computer models, and final survey documents.
