​​Survey Department


The Survey Department is a division of the Real Property Department. The goal of this department is to save the taxpayers of Alachua County money by using an in-house surveying team that can respond more quickly to the needs of County Government. Below is a small list of the functions fulfilled by the Survey Department:

  • Enhances the County Densification Survey of 1988.
  • Monuments County rights of way and drainage easements.
  • Assists in the development of the GIS network.
  • Establishes County right of way by surveying and recording maintenance maps.
  • Develops as-built drawings on accidents involving County vehicles.

The Survey Department offers GIS and GPS services to the governing bodies of the outlying municipalities surrounding Alachua County. 

The Survey Department is unable to provide surveys for the public.
