Land Surveying

Land Surveying is an integral part of the great majority of project services provided by JAS. The division of land into parts and the determination of land lines are critical to the proper development of our communities and the environment. JAS provides these services in our offices, primarily through our staff of registered Professional Land Surveyors, experienced in all facets of land description and placement.

Included in this section of services are ALTA/ACSM Land Title Surveys, boundary surveys, plot plans, footing surveys, foundation location surveys, topography maps, flood elevation certificates, farm and ranch surveys, house locations, spot surveys, utility surveys, construction layout and others. Field services, using the most modern equipment including Global Positioning Systems (GPS), robotic total stations and electronic data collectors assure our clients of a timely, accurate response to the project land surveying needs.

ALTA/ACSM Land Title Surveys

This survey is required by title insurance companies and/or lenders for commercial properties being sold or refinanced. Joseph A. Schudt & Associates prepares surveys to the standards established by the American Land Title Association (ALTA), the National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) and the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ACSM).

Boundary Surveys

A current, up-to-date plat of survey is often required for the appraisal of property, refinancing or the transfer of land ownership. JAS looks at each property individually to determine the cost of a survey for developed or undeveloped land.

Construction Layout

Survey field crews are experienced in all forms of construction staking including subdivision layout, utility staking and building layout.

Topographic Surveys

A survey drawing showing the elevations and contours of the land is typically required prior to any construction or improvements. Topographic surveys are usually necessary if any Wetlands or Floodplains are involved. JAS personnel are very experienced in identifying and locating Wetland and Floodplain areas.
