My Survey Life

Your Land Surveying Life

Share Your Survey Experience

Enjoy, explore and contribute to our community....a living library of land surveying which is not controlled by 3rd party interests- it is controlled by you, the surveyor. No one else in the world aside from our community members catalogs changes in the surveying industry. No one else collects, curates and showcases the importance of land surveyors to society for future generations to learn from and to promote public awareness of this importance. It takes just a few moments per week to curate a rock solid legacy in surveying but every minute you spend sharing your experience will breathe ten years of life into the profession.

  • Land Surveyor

    Inmost Jurisdictions and before the 1980's, Civil Engineers registration included boundary determination, hence they could perform boundary surveys.  The license or registration authorizing ones right to practice within a defined discipline is a statement of competence.  Competentse is defined as Experience, education and examination.  As engineering discipline expanded for new subjects to be covered in their four year degree, they dropped the study of title and boundaries.  Hence the various jurisdictions that issue rights to practice denied boundary surveying as they were no longer experienced, educated or examined in boundary survey.  Land surveyors  have the three "E's" for boundary surveying.  In Short, Only land surveyors may practice boundary surveys and engineers cannot.
