J.D. Davis, LSLS, RPLS, CFedS has served two terms as President of Chapter 16 of the Texas Society of Professional Surveyors. This Chapter covers 26 Counties of the Texas Panhandle.
J.D. Davis is a Licensed State Land Surveyor in the State of Texas. Unlike Texas Registered Professional Land Surveyors, Licensed State Land Surveyors are vested with the authority to make surveys to determine the disposition of the public domain in Texas. Unrecorded patents, vacancies between patent surveys, excess or deficiency of acreage in patent surveys are some of the tasks allocated to the Licensed State Land Surveyors. In addition, LSLS's, are authorized to make coastal boundary surveys and to make gradient boundary surveys to determine the boundary between the State of Texas, which owns the stream bed, and upland private owners along navigable rivers and streams in Texas. LSLS's are the only Texas surveyors authorized to submit surveys and reports to the Texas General Land Office for these purposes.
J.D. Davis received a federal certification from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. J.D. was among 25 land surveyors nationwide certified under the new program called CFedS, for Certified Federal Surveyor. The CFedS program, which has been approved by the U.S. Secretary of the Interior, was designed specifically to enhance the level of knowledge and expertise in the professional land surveying community for survey work performed on federal lands and especially on Indian trust lands. To earn the CFedS designation, professional land surveyors must complete approximately 120 hours of course materials prepared by the BLM's National Training Center, in Phoenix, Arizona, and pass the certification examination. To maintain certification, a CFedS must complete 10 hours of continuing education annually. The certification is intended to be a significant addition to the resume and credentials of the private professional land surveyor and Tribal surveyors. It is expected that in the coming years, the list of CFedS will grow larger as will the demand for their services.
