South Carolina Geodetic Survey

The primary mission of the SC Geodetic Survey is to ensure the integrity of geodetic control throughout South Carolina so that land and land-related items can be accurately referenced to the national horizontal and vertical coordinate system. The SCGS accomplishes this through a program to upgrade county geodetic networks and operating a statewide Real-Time GPS Network.

The SC Geodetic Survey also supports the development and maintenance of an accurate, uniform statewide mapping system on a county-by-county basis.  The county mapping systems provide a large-scale map base for county and state computerized land information systems that facilitate manipulating and storing land records for a multitude of purposes.

In addition, the SC Geodetic Survey assists the re-establishment of political boundaries that are ill-defined, unmarked or poorly marked.
