Our History

The roots of our company date back to 1985, when future LandSource president David Patterson joined the surveying department of Rodi & Songy – a small engineering firm. In 1994, Rodi & Songy merged with Chenevert Soderberg, an architectural firm, to become Chenevert • Songy • Rodi • Soderberg (CSRS). At the urging of Patterson, CSRS decided to form LandSource as a separate company in 1994 in an effort to better market the land information services of CSRS.

With Patterson serving as manager, LandSource experienced steady growth and ever-increasing recognition as a land information services leader in the business community. In 1996, Patterson became minority owner of the company – and in 1998 he acquired the business and became the sole proprietor. In 1999, LandSource moved to its present location in Industriplex – a commercial office park located in south Baton Rouge.

Today, LandSource is firmly established as one of the top land information companies in the region. Our company continues to grow, with a focus on keeping our skills and knowledge fresh – while always delivering high quality services and unsurpassed customer satisfaction.
