Dale L. Hardy, Registered Professional Land Surveyor, has practiced land surveying throughout the Houston - Galveston area since 1982 when he joined Hall-Johnson Surveyors as a Party Chief. Earning his Registration in January of 1990, Mr. Hardy established his private practice, DALE L. HARDY & ASSOCIATES, in League City in August of 1990. Incorporating the practice in 2001, GeoSurv, LLC, is a private practice land survey firm offering an extensive range of professional land survey services to its clients.
Since beginning the practice, the business philosophy has been to limit the geographic service area to Galveston County and adjacent areas (Chambers, Harris, Montgomery, Fort Bend and Brazoria Counties) while providing the highest quality of professional land survey services available. This philosophy has served the firm well as it has grown to be the largest private land survey practice in Galveston County.
As a result of the reputation which has been earned for quality professional service, Mr. Hardy is often called upon as a recognized expert in his field to address difficult survey projects, partitions of estates and survey conflicts by title companies, developers and the legal community. In his capacity as an expert, Mr. Hardy has provided investigative field surveys, written reports of findings, depositions and trial testimony for both plaintiffs and defendants. Mr. Hardy has also been called upon by the Texas Board of Professional Land Surveying to conduct field surveys related to Board investigations of survey complaints.

He has served on Charter Revision Committees and numerous special committees to review and draft Ordinances for Subdivision Development, Commercial Development and Zoning for the City of League City. He also served on the Permit Process Review Committee for the City of Galveston in 1997. Mr. Hardy was elected Galveston County Surveyor in 1994 and served Galveston County in that capacity through 1998. Mr. Hardy presently serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the League City Economic Development Corporation and the Board of Advisors for the Land Survey Technologies program with the College of the Mainland in Texas City.
