Expert Techniques

KC’s land surveying group is a leading provider of boundary and topographic surveying, base mapping, right-of-way mapping with GPS control, and GIS services. We continue to invest in the latest developments in GPS technology and personnel training as part of our commitment to provide quality service at competitive rates. We have in-house capabilities for performing computer aided design and analysis, word processing, and cost estimating. Real Time Kinematic Surveying and differential rapid static GPS are our preferred methods for performing a variety of surveying services such as construction layouts, topographic and as-built surveys, wetland locations, aerial photo control, and hydrographic surveys. KC’s newest piece of survey equipment, our Laser Scanner, allows us to pick up full detail of roadway corridors with minimum MPT and impact to the travelling public. The Scanner’s capabilities cut field time in half and produce high-quality and detailed survey plans.

Dedication to Accuracy

Gathering accurate field data is essential to establishing locations or monuments, be it for property lines, topography, or utilities for GIS. KC’s survey personnel, under the direction of professional land surveyors, can collect geographically referenced positions along with attributes that are easily recorded utilizing state-of-the-art equipment. Output formats include the most popular engineering, mapping, and GIS software packages.

KC’s land surveying group consists of dedicated professional land surveyors, party chiefs, instrument people, GIS technicians, draftsmen, engineering technicians, and CADD operators with experience researching and recording all types of survey data and with extensive experience out in the field in both varying terrains and varying weather.
