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.

He has been involved in land surveying since 1985 and is experienced in all types of land surveying. Thomas is licensed in the States of Colorado (1994) and Arizona (2004). Since the introduction of Global Positioning Systems (GPS) to land surveying in the mid-1990’s, Thomas has learned how to set up control networks, process fast static sessions and establish strict quality-control procedures for verification of data content and position. This experience is now benefiting Denver International Airport with the establishment of their own Virtual Reference System (VRS) and seasonal monitoring of Primary Airport Control.
