Need a Land Surveyor?

PLSC cannot recommend one surveyor over another. If you need a land surveyor, please  go to the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) and download the list of Colorado licensed surveyors and also check for any disciplinary actions against a particular surveyor under the "Verify License Tab" on the DORA site. Certified Federal Surveyors are listed at Be sure to check references for the surveyor you are considering hiring.

Geodetic Certification Program
Posted February 28, 2016

The American Association for Geodetic Surveying (AAGS) is in the early stages of pursuing development of a Geodetic Certification Program at the request of NSPS and ASPRS. As part of that process, AAGS created an online survey. The purpose is to raise awareness of the proposed program and identify the required depth of geodetic knowledge. More information can be found on the survey web page at Feel free to share the survey link with any other geospatial professional organizations or individuals. The program is being developed in cooperation with other organizations, so you may receive (or have received) additional announcements. Please forgive any multiple postings. Thank you in advance for your willingness to participate in this important survey! Best regards,Michael L. Dennis, RLS, PEChair, AAGS Geodetic Education and Certification Committee
