Land surveying is the practice of determining property lines, describing land in legal property descriptions, subdividing land, and placing property corner monuments in the ground.

MSEI provides services ranging from finding property corners for home owners, to platting entire subdivisions. MSEI has GPS,  and robotic total station for fast and accurate surveys and staking.

Nearly every week, MSEI does 1 or 2 small surveying projects for home owners in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and the surrounding suburbs:
