We offer all phases of land surveying, including but not limited to ALTA/NSPS land title surveys, category 1A condition II surveys, residential surveys, commercial surveys, topographic surveys, construction surveys, platting services and elevation certificates.

South Texas Surveying has expanded its drone fleet to offer even more land survey services to our clients. With our drones, we can now perform aerial surveys. Providing a detailed and accurate view of the property's boundaries, topography, and other features. The use of drones has significantly reduced the time and costs associated with traditional land surveying methods. The data collected from the drones is then processed into a 3D point cloud, which can be used for site planning, boundary line determination, and legal descriptions. This expansion of services has allowed South Texas Surveying to better meet the needs of our clients in the real estate industry.
