Please take a moment to visit these other Iowa Surveyor sites:

An online resource to aid and promote the profession of
Land Surveying in the State of Iowa

Greetings and welcome to The Iowa Surveyor!  If you stumbled across this website while searching for the official website of the Society of Land Surveyors of Iowa (SLSI), you can get there by going to:

But please feel free to come back and look around.

This website is intended as a resource for both land surveyors and non-surveyors alike.  The pages listed at the left contain many useful links and information pertaining to the profession of land surveying and especially to the profession here in Iowa.

I will attempt to keep all information and links current, but since almost all of the linked sites are owned and maintained by other entities, there may be times where links have become outdated or moved or for some other reason are not correct.  If you happen to find a link that does not work properly or if you feel that there is a link that belongs on this site, please e-mail me at and I will do my best to resolve the problem or add your suggested link.

If you need a new reference book for the library or maybe just something interesting to read, visit the book store .  There are a variety of selections relating to land surveying, history and exploration you may find of interest.

I also have a blog .  The blog allows me post news and commentary on a variety of subjects and allows you to post your comments as well.  I try to add to it several times a month, so be sure to check it often and feel free to share your thoughts.
