Survey Advisory Board

The Survey Advisory Board encourages and regulates the use of state mapping and surveying systems.
This board works with the Washington State 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.
