Land surveying is both an art and a science. The art of mapping, research, and analysis of history and evidence. The science of making precise measurements using high-tech tools (GPS, Laser Scanners, Robotic Total Stations, etc.) and the preparation of very detailed survey drawings using sophisticated CAD software. Whether you are buying, selling, building, subdividing, improving or litigating, a licensed professional surveyor is the first person to contact.
In Michigan, only licensed professional surveyors are allowed to practice surveying. The current state requirements for licensure include a four-year degree from an ABET accredited college, a four-year intern program and successful completion of three licensing exams. Please make sure your surveyor has met these requirements.
