Survey Advisory Board Image 

The Survey Advisory Board encourages and regulates the use of state mapping and surveying systems.

 

 

 

This board works with the Washington Department of Natural Resources (DNR)—the state’s official agency for surveys and maps—to advise state agencies, counties, municipalities, registered engineers, and land surveyors about:

  • Recovering section corners or other land boundary marks
  • Understanding monument standards
  • Facilitating and encouraging the use of the Washington State coordinate system
  • Promoting the use of the national geodetic network

The state law that created this board (RCW 58.24.020), also names DNR as the state’s official agency for surveys and maps.

Meetings
The board meets 1 - 4 times a year, or as needed.

Membership
The Commissioner of Public Lands appoints the five members of this board, the majority of whom by law must be registered professional engineers or land surveyors. The board’s membership represents the diverse sectors of the land surveying profession while also maintaining geographic representation.
