How accurate are land survey measurements?

I get the same question a lot. "Why can't I just survey my land with my phone? It has GPS in it." The truth is while smartphones are convenient and useful for many tasks, they are not suitable for professional land surveying. To ensure accurate and reliable results, it is important to use specialized equipment and software designed for accuracy and precision, and to follow established standards and procedures.

  1. I am a registered land surveyor from Arizona. I have surveyed on mountainous, forested, desert and coastal terrain in all kinds of weather. I like everything about surveying from legal research to construction staking. What I believe to be the most important part of what we do is to provide accurate information that others can rely on. This website epitomizes that belief. This site also helps me research the technical aspects of day to day surveying while being connected culturally on a global scale. This makes for an enjoyable place to learn. I look forward to signing on whenever I can. A lot of work and vision has gone into creating this site, Justin you deserve a lot of credit. Thank you.

  3. I am Professional Land Surveyor In Oklahoma, currently living in Arizona for now. I have joined a number of Survey related Social networks in the 17 yrs or so i have been surveying, to date i still haven't found one as versatile and helpful rather in the field on my smart phone or in the office on my desktop. I am very anxious to watch and be apart of LSU as it grows and tops the charts. If you haven't heard about the possible tasks LSU may be doing in the near future for less fortunate (for lack of a better word) countries, Ask him, and participate!

  4. I have been taught only AutoCAD so I am probably in the same position as you on that Keith. Renting a unit has never crossed my mind until you mentioned it. That seems like the way to go until the business can get up and going good. The hardest part that I think I will have is getting work at first. Also, deciding how to go about charging and how much I need to charge to make a profit. You guys have given me very good ideas and tips that I would have not thought of myself and I really do appreciate it. Thanks!
