Land Surveying and Mapping Services:
North Coast Engineering (NCE) provides a wide array of surveying services to both private and municipal clients throughout San Luis Obispo, Monterey, Kern, and Kings County. These services include, but are not limited to:
- Boundary surveys
- Topographic mapping
- Mapping services, including:
- Lot line adjustments
- Tentative maps
- Parcel maps
- Tract maps
- Construction staking
- As-built surveying
- ALTA’s (American Land Title Association Surveys)
- Flood Elevation Certificates
With a disciplined quality control process, NCE survey crews are able to confidently provide support to contractors in the field.
NCE is currently equipped to run up to three survey crews. Crews may consist of a conventional two-man arrangement with a party chief and instrument man, or where appropriate a one-man crew is run where practical and economical for the client. Our survey crews currently have the following equipment available to them:
- Topcon Hiper RTK GPS
- Trimble R-6 RTK GPS
- Trimble S6 Robotic Total Station
- Trimble 5800 Robotic Total Station
- Topcon 303 Total Station
- Lietz and Topcon Auto-Levels
Data collection is performed with Trimble TCS3 and Topcon Ranger Data Collectors with TDS Survey Pro software, which is interfaced to the NCE computer system. Office software systems include TDS Foresight Software, and Topcon Tools GPS Post Processing Software. Survey drafting and analysis is further processed utilizing AutoCAD Civil 3D 2014. NCE utilizes a field to finish coding system for conventional ground topographic surveys.
With this coding field points are brought into the CAD drawing and most of the line work and break lines are drawn automatically with the CAD software. Symbols for features are blocked in also without losing the elevation component of the field shot. This process allows for a faster turnaround time in preparing topographic surveys.
All crews are equipped with 4-wheel drive vehicles and a full complement of surveying accessories.
