Survey Advisory Board
Board members, from left, Tim Kent, Paul Galli, Bruce Dodds, Gary Letzring, and Martin Paquette.
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.
