NIS Lagos as a body leverage on new Technology

The Nigerian Institution of Surveyors is arguably one of the oldest organised professional bodies in Nigeria. NIS started in 1934 and its foundations were laid in Lagos State as the "Licensed Surveyors Association" under the able leadership of the late Nationalist, Herbert Macaulay. In 1960, the name was changed to the "Land Surveyors Association of Nigeria" with the state Late Surv. C.T. Olumide elected as its first president. Late C.T. Olumide is honoured every year by the Institution with a memorial Lecture.

Message from the Chairman

It is my greatest pleasure to welcome you to the official webpage of the Nigerian Institution of Surveyors Lagos State branch. The Surveying profession is one of the oldest organized professions in Nigeria. Surveyors are saddled with the responsibility of providing accurate and reliable Geospatial data and information for all users.
Land Surveying as referred to in the past has transformed into Surveying and Geoinformatics. This change is due to digital transformation and advancement in technology applicable to methods of acquiring, processing, retrieval, update, and presentation of survey data. These has brought about improved service delivery among the surveying professions to the clients and the public.

SURV. Kolade Kasim, fnis
