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.
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 →

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 →

This means school is nearly always a concern for land surveyors.
Here’s where things can get complicated. Land surveying jobs often involve lots of…Read more →
