Parsons Surveying Information



We are a small business operating primarily in Northwestern Oregon, from Eugene to Portland. We have one registered Professional Land Surveyor, Tyler Parsons, who is personally involved in all aspects of our projects, and heads our two person crew. Tyler is registered as a Land Surveyor in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, and ss a Certified Water Rights Examiner in Oregon.

Construction surveys have ranged from simple house layouts all the way up to complete building, utility, and site control and layout for a five story office building in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Construction projects in 1999 include two apartment complexes in East Portland, and two retail store complexes in Beaverton

Our survey equipment consists of a TOPCON GTS-4, 2 second electronic total station, capable of measuring distances electronically out to approximately 2 miles. We also have a TOPCON G TS-802 Robotic Station, capable of one person surveying by control from the traverse of stakeout position. We utilize a Tripod Data Systems RECON data collector. Data is downloaded using TDS software, and most survey calculations and drafting is performed using Spectra Precision's Terramodel. Terramodel can directly import engineering and architectural drawings in AutoCAD drawing format (.DWG) up to Version 2007, and export in Version 2000 format. We utilize this feature to produce boundary and topographic surveys in electronic format for use by architects and engineers in the design of a building site, and use the electronic version of their plans to develop the data for staking the site for the contractor.

In addition to providing surveying services to the public, Tyler has also been an assistant instructor for the Spring and Fall "Workshops in Surveying" at Oregon State University, teaching the one-day Public Land Survey System course, and team teaching the Fundamentals Review, the Oregon Law I Workshop, and the Coordinate Workshop. He has been involved in these workshops since 1985.

As of March 2007, Tyler is a Certified Federal Surveyor (CFedS), qualified to perform federally authorized surveys on Indian tribal lands, and holds certificate No. 1001.
