What We Do

Land surveying is an essential means of mapping land boundaries, distances, slopes and features so as to enable land development and accurate land registers.
The surveying process has been in existence for centuries and many say it is the second oldest profession in the world.  
One of America's most famous and first land surveyors is George Washington. Others include Daniel Boone, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, William Clark and Meriwether Lewis.
History reveals a lot about how people accurately established their cities, monuments and kingdoms along with determining land ownership using boundary records.
