South Dakota Society of Professional Land Surveyors
SDSPLS was established to facilitate and promote Professional Land Surveying in the State of South Dakota.

Our mission is to promote the profession, assist surveying professionals through education and information, and to provide a unified voice for fellow surveyors in South Dakota.

We welcome you to use this site to enhance your knowledge and gain a better understanding of how we are working to elevate the surveying profession in South Dakota.
From President Lamke (May 2015) 
Ah, Spring!  The grass is green, the trees and flowers are budding, birds are singing and young vandals are discovering that surveyors keep paint in their trucks, and it's fun to 'tag' their fleet of work trucks in all those festive colors of spring!  OK, maybe that last one isn't a rite of
spring.  New work logo?  Probably not.  Oh well, at least the spring part is right and though it comes slowly, we are grateful knowing that it will come eventually.  Construction Season is upon us, and hopefully you are all busy working, and dodging the occasional rain drop.

As you may know this year is the bicentennial of the establishment of the Initial Point for the Fifth Principal Meridian (1815 - 2015).  The Missouri Society of Professional Surveyors is in the process of organizing a dedication ceremony that has been set for Saturday,
October 17, 2015.  Additional details will be forthcoming.   
West River Chapter President Chad Dodds is organizing a visit to the Black Hills Meridian Initial Point. The trip was scheduled for Saturday, June 6 but postponed due to recent heavy rains in the area. Stay tuned or email Chad for more information -
