Land Surveying

Surveying is a simple word to explain the complexity of a diverse profession.  At Sequence, we understand these nuances.  Surveying, or land surveying, is the technique and science many say it is the art -- of accurately determining the terrestrial or three-dimensional space position of points and the distances and angles between them. 

An alternative definition, per the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ACSM), says it is the science and art of making all essential measurements to determine the relative position of points and/or physical and cultural details above, on, or beneath the surface of the earth, and to depict them in a usable form, or to establish the position of points and/or details.

Surveying is one of the most crucial first steps in many construction, development, engineering and transport related initiatives.  We are well versed in the many undertakings of land surveying for residential, commercial, industrial, municipal, seabed/hydrographic, recreational, agricultural, transportation and military activities.

At Sequence, we work daily to support a wide variety of land surveying activities and initiatives for our clients through recruitment and placement of highly capable staff, management and executive level personnel.

Though all states require licensure for surveyors, the education required to become licensed varies with each jurisdiction, from high school graduation up to a degree from an ABET-accredited surveying program at a college or university.  ABET, the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, is the nationally recognized accrediting organization for engineering, technology and surveying curricula.

Job assignments cover a large range of general support and organizational personnel who assist in undertaking and management of internal operations; the chainmen, party chief and professional survey personnel who execute hands-on field data collection; survey managers that oversee and direct tasks and survey teams; in-office surveyors who do advanced calculations, process data and undertake the task of creating and manipulating physical/digital mapping from survey field data; and the senior professional land survey managers and executives that formalize/sign off on completed mapping projects.

Working with a broad spectrum of organizations, we continually strive to assist in the integration of human capital and client undertakings.  This approach provides us the flexibility and creativity to match client needs and requirements to individual personnel traits and abilities.
