What Surveyors Do
Share |

There are a number of services that only a licensed Professional Surveyor is allowed to provide, specifically those related to the location of property boundaries, but Surveyors also provide a wide variety of land related services such as location, topography, spatial position, and land use planning. Basically, anything related to land location and use will generally require the services of a Professional Surveyor.


A few of these services include;

  • Boundary line surveys and consultation;

  • Subdivision of land;

  • Topographic maps and accident site maps;

  • Construction surveys for placement of planned buildings, facilities, utilities, etc.

  • Flood insurance maps (FEMA Flood Certificates; Letters of Map Amendment, etc.)

  • Hydrographic maps (maps of the topography underwater);

  • Volumetric calculations for stockpiles (coal piles, etc.);

  • Control networks to reference property within a specific local, state, or national geospatial framework. 

NSPS strives to establish and further common interests, objectives, and political effort that would help bind the surveying profession into a unified body in the United States.

Governance: The National Society of Professional Surveyors Inc. is governed by a Board of Directors. The NSPS Board of Directors meets twice per year.   NSPS has working agreements with state surveying organizations which are represented on the NSPS Board of Directors, and with the NSPS Foundation, Inc.
