Survey of Kansas Caves

The K.S.S. has conducted numerous surveys and produced many maps of Kansas caves. Some of those maps are available in past issues of the Kansas Kaver and Kansas Caves. Other maps are available in the K.S.S. library and members' personal files.

Several ongoing projects are being conducted in the state at this time. More information about cave surveying can be obtained from the National Spelelogical Society or the K.S.S.

The K.S.S. owns three complete sets of survey gear, including three clinometer/compass units, and three 100' Keeson tapes, which are available for use by members to survey caves. Survey data collected while using K.S.S. survey gear must be shared with the K.S.S. Users agree to replace or repair survey gear damaged while in their possession.
