Gwen Gee

I work for the County of Santa Clara as the County Surveyor. A County Surveyor’s duties can vary depending on how the county is organized. For Santa Clara County our main function is processing Records of Surveys, Corner Records and Subdivision maps. We also spend a lot of time providing assistance to the public in researching maps, old and new and recorded and unrecorded, from the vast collection of maps that we’ve been accumulating since the 1800’s. Our map collection even contains maps of lands that are outside of our county. Historically, the Santa Clara County Surveyor was an elected position.
