About Us

Welcome to South Texas Surveying, a licensed land surveying company serving all of Texas. Our experienced team provides a variety of accurate and reliable land survey services using advanced equipment and techniques.

Pioneers in Texas Land Surveying Since 1980

South Texas Surveying Associates, Inc., a family-owned company, has been a cornerstone in commercial land surveying and residential surveys since 1980. Our journey began with our founder, Fred W. Lawton, RPLS & PE, and Fred. F. Lawton, RPLS, whose vision has propelled us to the forefront of surveying in Texas. We have proudly served the Texas real estate market by providing various surveys, including ALTA/NSPS land title surveys, category 1A condition II surveys, topographic surveys, construction surveys, platting services, and elevation certificates.

Innovating with Technology and Expanding Services through Drones

Embracing technological advancements, South Texas Surveying has expanded its services with a robust drone fleet. Our aerial survey capabilities offer a detailed view of property boundaries and topography, transforming traditional survey methods. The resulting data is processed into a 3D point cloud, invaluable for site planning, boundary line determination, and creating legal descriptions. This innovation not only enhances efficiency but significantly reduces time and costs, aligning with the evolving needs of our clients in the real estate industry.
