Welcome to the PLSC Website!

PLSC is a non-profit association 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 Economic Benefits of NOAA Regional Geodetic Advisor Program
Posted June 15, 2018

A 2018 socio-economic scoping study has been released which estimates the economic benefits of the NOAA-managed Regional Geodetic Advisor Program. The study, conducted for NOAA"s National Geodetic Survey by ARCBridge Consulting of Herndon, VA, estimates 2018 annual total benefits of the program to be between $18.6 and $38.7 million. This includes Regional Advisor Program Services to constituents including in-person assistance to individuals and organizations, telephone and email assistance, training individuals and groups, field work, assistance to universities, publicizing datum changes and NGS services in networking activities, articles and interviews. The NGS Regional Geodetic Advisors are federal employees that serve as a liaison between NGS and its public, academic and private sector constituents within their assigned region. In 2016, NGS completed the transition from a primarily state geodetic advisor program, which covered only 24 participating states, to a new regional advisor program that covers the United States across 14 regions. The complete study, including detailed methodology and other benefit calculations,is available at https://geodesy.noaa.gov/PUBS_LIB/reg-geodetic-advisor-prog-socio-economic-scoping-study-6-1-18.pdf
