Our History

Arc Surveying & Mapping, Inc. is a multi-disciplinary small business that specializes in land and marine surveying throughout North and South America, including the Caribbean. Incorporated in Florida during 1991, the company has offices in Jacksonville Florida, Melbourne Florida, Memphis Tennessee and Tuscaloosa Alabama. Arc Surveying & Mapping, Inc. is considered by clients and peers to be among the most technically competent and competitive surveying companies in the business of professional hydrographic and topographic surveying.

The company was established by John F. Sawyer and his three sons Richard, Frank and Patrick in 1986 with the vision of forming a professional organization that would reach beyond the bounds of conventional surveying. Utilizing a skilled staff and emerging technology such as Global Positioning Systems, Robotic Total Stations, Terrestrial Laser Scanners, Dual Frequency and Multibeam Swath Sounders, sophisticated data collection, computing and mapping software, Arc Surveying & Mapping, Inc. planned to quickly move ahead of competitors.

The Sawyers purchased an established conventional surveying company in Jacksonville and by 1992 emerged as the most technically competent professional surveying and mapping company in the Southeast U.S., rebranding the company as Arc Surveying & Mapping, Inc.

Since 1992, Arc Surveying & Mapping, Inc. dedicated technology-oriented staff has helped Arc Surveying & Mapping, Inc. to become the first choice of engineers, developers, contractors and others that require timely, accurate and cost effective surveys for both small and large scale projects throughout North and South America.
