"One of these things is not like the others"....Can you guess which one?

I could not figure out how to make a new category so I posted this little problem here. This issue concerns a property in Bellaire, Texas, USA. The subject tract was conveyed to Mr. "A" in the mid 70s under the description "Lot 25, Block 46, Bellaire Townsite according to the map or plat thereof....etc." Mr. "A" files an affidavit of possession and ownership in 2009 which states in part "I acquired title to the real property in 1977...the legal description of that property is as follows:..."…See More

Land Surveyor named Indiana Jones

Posted on December 2, 2014 at 7:00am 3 Comments

The following story is fictional and any resemblance to actual events is purely coincidental.

Land Surveyor named Indiana Jones

One day I was sitting in my office in Downtown Houston around 5:00 pm in the afternoon in 2001 when the phone rang.  My secretary had already left and I was not anxious to answer it.  I had a…

Truth, Justice and the American way

Posted on May 7, 2014 at 9:00am 3 Comments

Unable to find a satisfactory job and stuck in a job I hated I finally opened up my own Land Surveying Firm in mid 1992. I was 32 at the time and thought that I knew everything about Land Surveying because of my previous experiences. It goes to show you that ignorance is most often a result of arrogance.

As I look back now I realize that I had no idea at that time what I was doing and I am really uncertain at this point how I managed to…

Hi,

Westernlogan provides CAD and GIS Services to companies across North America, in Oil & Gas, Pipeline, Environmental Science, and Construction & Real Estate.
I had seen your profile on this forum and thought of connecting with you. We have adequate experience and workforce with vast experience in Land Survey CAD Drafting and would love to look at this opportunity.
We charge anywhere between $10 to $20 per hour on Land Survey CAD Drafting Services while the pricing on Architectural & Structural depends on the kind of work. We work on Civil 3D, AutoCAD lower versions, LDD and compatible with Carlson and Microstation.
Super fast turn times! All files with 2-4 hours of work time are returned back within 24 hours or even faster than that, at NO EXTRA COST!

We have been working with Land Survey and Architectural. Companies across North America for the last 6 years, hence standards we follow are pretty much like how you would want us to, however would love to see your samples. We usually go through your samples and browse through your layering, texting, standards as well to reflect that in your work files. We make sure that we use your templates along with your guidelines.
Our Land Survey CAD Services:
• ALTA Surveys & Right of Ways
• Boundary & Location
• Topographic & As Builts
• Telecommunication and Oil & Gas Well Plats
To get started, we can always work on a TRIAL file for you free of cost, just to make sure you get to review our expertise with a Live Work-file. In order to start a LAND SURVEY.


we would need the following:
1. Base File - DWG file for the Parcel
2. Points file ( csv, ascii etc)
3. Example PDF and DWG of any previous work files
4. Field Sketch
5. Aerial Photos if required
6. Filed notes with Point Codes
7. Inverts
8. Instructions and Guidelines

Scope of Work:
1. Drawing the Boundary
2. Linework
3. Labelling
4. Type Legals from Title Commitment
5. Topo
6. Contour Details
7. Schedule A&B, Zoning, Flood Zone, Encroachments, Parking, Misc Notes, Title Block, etc
You can send us the files and required documents here on this email initially for the TRIAL work.
The finished file is always uploaded on your dashboard on our website and also emailed or sent to our mode of file sharing software that you may use. (Like Dropbox, Drive, ftp etc)
Should there be a need of any additional details like Industry References, recommendations etc, please feel free to contact me.
Looking forward to talk to you soon.

Regards,
Harshad
