"Have the engineer export the dog to Autocad 2000. If you have a newer version of Trumble Business Center you can import the dwg file then export it as a dxf."

Locating concrete Right of Way monuments

I want to see how you guys and gals are locating your old concrete right-of-way monuments in your areas. Here in Arkansas I've been told by several older surveyors that you should not locate the center of the monument. When they set the old 4x4 concrete monuments they set them as best they could with the monument totally inside the right-of-way, so to get the most accurate position you should locate the outside edge of the right-of-way monument. I've talked to surveyors in their 40s and younger…See More

James Barnett replied to Maciej Michalak's discussion What is the best spot level interval
"Definitely doable, but overkill. I have signed contracts that requested 25 ft grids and noticed it after the fact. I explained it was overkill and some clients agreed to go to a 50 ft grid and some didn't. As far as using a level goes, if the…"

"It just came to mind that I know several surveyors that retired from our State DOT. I will ask them about it but remember, the answer is probably State specific."

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to James Barnett's discussion Locating concrete Right of Way monuments
"I never heard of that either. I think it would depend on individual State law but unless language to the contrary is in the State statutes or the HWY plans, I would treat them the same as any other monument. I recall back in the 70's, a company…"

Introduction to other Surveyors. One or more sentence Bio about your Relationship with Surveying
I went to college to be a computer programmer, but realized exclusively sitting in front a computer was not for me. I had a friend who's mother was a survey professor and I went to talk to her about the career. I fell in love with the idea of being able to be outside and travel, but still use my natural affinity for computers on a day to day basis. I then proceeded to acquire my B.S. in Spatial Information Systems and my license. I've worked in the Florida Keys, north and south Arkansas, and in south Texas. Each of these areas I have seen beautiful parts of our country and met wonderful people. I am now unemployed and I have started trying to connect with other surveyors looking for work that will allow me to travel.
