Tech Session I - LAND SURVEYING IN THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA”
- Surveying in DC from “A” to “Z” --- From ‘A&T’ to Zoning . . .
Presented by DCALS,
The District of Columbia Association of Land Surveyors
– that few will ever see” . . .
While basic boundary principles remain fairly constant across the country, land surveying practices, traditions, rules, licensing and statutory requirements all differ drastically in the District of Columbia, when compared with Virginia and other surrounding states. This fast-paced 8-hour seminar gives a comprehensive basic introduction to all aspects of Washington DC Land Surveying.
Topics include: History, “Record vs. Measured,” Property Types, Subdividing, Official Recorded ‘Surveys-to-Mark,’ Wall Tests, Theoretical Lots, Tax Lots, Plats of Computation, Licensing and Registration, Research, Datums, Condominiums, Permitting & Zoning, Jurisdictions, DC-GIS and - most importantly – how Boundary Surveys are actually done in Washington DC.
Taught by licensed & registered DC land surveyors with decades of experience, this class focuses on information that surveyors who practice in DC, even occasionally, must understand to avoid trouble. It’s a full day – packed with everything from basic legal principles to DC’s ‘unconventional’ field practices. The reasons why DC follows its unusual techniques are explained.
Essential for DC licensure, this seldom-offered tutorial is the single basic course a surveyor needs to truly ‘get’ how land surveying works in our nation’s capital. Included in the seminar fee is an extensively-updated 2017 DCALS Manual, ‘Land Surveying in the District of Columbia,’ containing important new information never before published.
(8 PDH-CE Credits. For Maryland Surveyors, 8 “A” CPCs.)
