Wellington Land Surveying is not only a licensed professional land surveying firm, we belong to several professional land surveying associations. Our main office located in Meridian, Idaho, we feel that it is important to have a membership in the Idaho Society of Professional Land Surveyors.
The Idaho Society of Professional Land Surveyors was incorporated in 1976 to advance the science and art of surveying in Idaho. The main objectives of the Idaho Society of Professional Land Surveyors (ISPLS) as stated in the Articles of Incorporation are to:
- Advance the science of land surveying, in furtherance of the public welfare
- Contribute to public education in the use of surveys, maps, and records
- Encourage improvement of college curricula for the teaching of surveying
- Support publications that will represent the interests of surveying
- Cooperate with ACSM in all matters of mutual interest and concern
- Foster and maintain high standards of professional ethics and practice in land surveying
- Honor the leaders in the science of surveying
The National Society of Professional Surveyors provides the platform by which members can share their thoughts and opinions about our common interests through business meetings/committees, regional groups, and student chapters. It also provides a forum for input from other groups such as the National Association of County Surveyors, members of state boards of registration, and the Forum for State Surveying Society Executives.Wellington Land Surveying is not only a licensed professional land surveying firm, we belong to several professional land surveying associations.
The American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ACSM) was founded in June 1941 and was incorporated as a non-profit educational organization whose goal is to advance the sciences of surveying and mapping and related fields in furtherance of the welfare of those who use and make maps. ACSM also encourages the development of educational programs and supports publications that represent the professional and technical interests of surveying and mapping. ACSM is now part of the National Society of Professional Surveyors.
The technology explosion has provided new methods of attaining and using spatial data. Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Land Information Systems (LIS), and the Global Positioning System (GPS) have revolutionized the spatial relationships of both actual objects and planned concepts. ACSM continually seeks to respond to the challenges presented by these new technologies and establishes national standards that represent the professional and technical interests of surveying and mapping.
