Welcome

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.

New data exchange NGS
Posted September 13, 2019

NGS is proposing a new data file format for the exchange of GNSS vectors derived from various GNSS survey methods and manufacturer technology. The format is called GNSS Vector eXchange (GVX). Please take a look at the proposed format and send any comments or suggestions to NGS.feedback@noaa.gov. I think that the Young Surveyors should chime in on this since so many of us have experience with different varieties of GNSS surveys and will likely be using this new format in the years to come.https://geodesy.noaa.gov/data/formats/GVX/index.shtml?utm_medium=email&utm_source=GovDelivery


CORS ITRF2014 Coordinates
Posted August 26, 2019

NGS has started to release its NOAA CORS Network ITRF2014 epoch 2010.00 and NAD83 (2011) epoch 2010.00 coordinates, referred to as Multi-Year CORS Solution 2 (MYCS2). As a reminder, NGS has reprocessed all NOAA CORS Network and some IGS stations using data collected between 1/1/1996 and 1/30/2017. Release Notes:* The MYCS2 NAD 83 (2011) epoch 2010.00 coordinates are now available in NGS Datasheets and related products.* The new coordinates are also available in output from the NGS Data Explorer, archived shapefiles, and output from DSWorld.* Previous CORS coordinates are listed on the datasheets as superseded coordinates.All MYCS2 NAD 83 (2011) epoch 2010.00 coordinates and velocities will be integrated into all CORS and OPUS products in the next four to eight weeks. Send questions to NGS.CORS@noaa.gov or your Regional Geodetic Advisor.


Change in Examination Process for Land Surveyors
Posted May 02, 2019

National Council for Examiners for Engineering and Surveying has announced that starting May 15, 2019, applicants wishing to take the exam for engineer or land surveyor enrollment or licensure should contact the vendor, the National Council for Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES), directly. The Division of Professions and Occupations will no longer pre-approve applicants for the exams. Please note that the required qualifications are not changing, only the application process.Between May 1-14, 2019, the Division of Professions and Occupations will not accept any applications for engineer or land surveyor enrollment or licensure in order to prepare for this transition. The on-line applications will not be available during this time, but updated applications and instructions will reflect the new process and be posted on May 15, 2019.As licensees, educators, employers and other key stakeholders, you have direct contact with the students and professionals who may need to know about this change. We appreciate any efforts you can make to spread the word, so students and professionals know the correct path to licensure and do not encounter unexpected delays. Questions should be directed to Renee Wunsch, Licensing Supervisor at renee.wunsch@state.co.us. Thank you for your assistance.


GPS on Benchmarks Deadline Extension
Posted August 29, 2018
