For those of you who do not know what Section 179 is, let me give you my simple definition: Section 179 allows companies to deduct full purchase price of qualifying equipment or software that was financed or purchased during the tax year. What this means in layman’s terms (which is the only way I know how to communicate effectively) is that if you bought, financed, or leased qualifying…Read more →

There is a box or drawer full of old plats, blueprints and survey drawings that are collecting dust somewhere at your surveying company. Why not scan them into a file archive and monetize them? Imagine being able to sell access to those old surveys, retain the rights and permissions and make money twice with them. This is exactly what America's Building Records is providing the construction industry- the ability to do just that. Land…Read more →

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.

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.
There are some things we cannot control, no matter where we are. A pickpocket may target us; we might eat in a “questionable” place, drink the water, and end up with some serious intestinal issues; we might even be the victim of a more serious crime. Those of us who travel a lot or for long periods of time to…Read more →

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??"
Dude. Be cool. We're at the airport. It's called a "total station". Haha.
Yesterday, we introduced a new way to show your pride as a Land Surveyors United Member by adding a frame to your profile photo...i must say it is really taking off!…

However, if you use the right technology, the land surveying process can be a source of real business value for the project as a whole. By getting the project off on the right foot with high-quality land surveying services, you can set the foundation for a project that gets completed on time and within…Read more →
