PLSC is dedicated to the improvement of land surveying education and practice. We encourage land surveying professionals and individuals interested in our profession to participate in our upcoming events, visit our Chapter websites and get involved! This is a great profession, and PLSC is here to support the profession to continually improve the practice within Colorado.
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 www.cfeds.org/roster.asp. Be sure to check references for the surveyor you are considering hiring.

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 geodetic.xyz/survey/index.php/378997. 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

In 1954 Gaby Neunzert came to the U.S. from Switzerland by way of Beirut, Lebanon. Following a 3 year side trip with the U.S. Army, Gaby graduated from the Colorado School of Mines in Petroleum Engineering. After graduation, a missile job and a Master of Science in Petroleum Engineering, Gaby was given the opportunity of a lifetime when in 1979 he was asked to start and also teach the surveying program at Red Rocks Community College. Ten years later came the call to teach surveying, and other topics in the Civil Engineering option at Mines. From 1991 until his retirement in 2000 as Professor Emeritus, he wrote an extensive GPS text, as well as several surveying manuals. Gaby is a retired licensed surveyor in Colorado. For the near future, Gaby would like to share his knowledge of surveying, GPS and general knowledge with as many people as possible. Since retirement from Mines, Gaby has written a book entitled “Subdividing the Land” and has been involved in speaking at workshops.
