Easton, Maryland – AXIS Geospatial LLC is pleased to announce that William T. Derry, Prof. LS recently passed his Maryland PLS licensing exam. This adds a third state to his growing list of accreditations as Derry is also licensed in Delaware and Pennsylvania.

Derry has 29 years of experience as a land surveyor, with 15 years as a registrant working in the consulting industry. In support of AXIS’ continued growth, Derry joined AXIS in December 2012 to expand AXIS’ services and technical expertise to include professional land surveying as part of its geospatial data collection and processing. This in-house, licensed expertise provides AXIS additional quality control and quality assurance oversight at key phases along the geospatial processing chain.

Derry has extensive experience with conventional and robotic surveying instrumentation, GNSS systems including static and real time configurations, control network design and analysis, geometric and geodetic calculations, boundary surveying, title investigation and analysis, structural layout and deformation monitoring, as well as AutoCAD drafting, HD-LiDAR technology and project management. Mr. Derry also maintains an OSHA 40 Hr. HAZWOPER certification, including HAZWOPER Supervisor and Confined Space Entry endorsements.

“We’re delighted to have Bill as part of our management team and continued growth”, says Justin Lahman President/CEO of AXIS GeoSpatial LLC. “With our HD-LiDAR technology surveying land features to design-scale accuracy and detail, I believe employing a licensed land surveyor to oversee relevant technical areas is a logical, responsible step in AXIS’ growth. Bill is now licensed in three of the many states within which we operate. In addition to PA, DE and MD – we expect Bill to have NC by February 2014 and VA shortly thereafter.
