Land surveyors mostly deal with UTM coordinates. Unlike other GPS apps, ‘GPS TEST’  gives you the UTM coordinates. So that the accuracy of survey works can be checked roughly in few meters. Just got settings and select UTM in the format and WGS84  or the required datum. It will display UTM coordinates with zone and altitude as well.

Safety Travels for Archaeologists During the Excavations Abroad

Travel safety. It’s a real concern, given the nature of the world today. And yet, we love it, and we continue to transport ourselves around the world for those new experiences.

Those of us who travel a lot or for long periods of time to…

Gun at the Airport

I was at the airport on the way home from a work trip, carrying our survey instrument.

An enthusiastic young man approached me and asked rather loudly, "is that a gun??"
