Land Surveyor's Workshops, Inc., a leading provider of books, videos, software and seminars for surveyors and civil engineers, recently transferred ownership and has introduced new product lines to meet the needs of today's surveyor. Land Surveyor's Workshops is now located in Jefferson, NC. Customers can still reach the office by calling toll-free 800-533-4387 or visiting the LSW website at

Larry Phipps, PLS, acquired LSW, Inc. from its founder, John Keen, in May 2003 when Keen decided to spend more time traveling with his wife, Kaylene. Land Surveyor’s Workshops remains the primary source for Mr. Keen’s many popular surveying texts. Keen also remains an active faculty member and is scheduled to teach two exam review seminars for LSW in October. The complete fall continuing education and exam review seminar schedule is now posted on the LSW website.

“LSW has a long history of providing superior customer service and high quality products and seminars. Continuing John Keen’s tradition of excellence is a priority for me,” says Phipps. ”Our seminars are still taught by the same qualified and interesting instructors and we have brought onboard a few new experts in cutting edge surveying topics such as LIDAR.”

Another priority for Phipps is to enhance the product offerings to meet the changing needs of today’s surveyors. Since May, Phipps has added C&G Software and the latest in topo mapping technology to LSW’s catalog.

“LSW is now an official distributor for C&G Software. It’s the software that I use in my surveying business. Using C&G Survey 6 will help a surveyor make money. I want to share that with other surveyors.”

Phipps earned his surveying license in 1985 and is the owner of Phipps Surveying in Jefferson, NC. He graduated from North Carolina State University in 1980 with BS degrees in Forestry and Wildlife Biology.

Land Surveyor’s Workshops provides books, videos, seminars and software for land surveyors and civil engineers. The Fall 2003 Seminar Schedule and LSW catalog is now available online at To receive a free catalog of LSW products, call toll-free 1-800-533-4387.
