Where are you surveying?

Not a Surveyor

I am looking for a speaker who can explain to non-surveyors how trees are used for Bearing Markers and how astronomy was possibly/probably used in surveys three thousand years ago in China. This is for a conference March 16-19 in Toronto.

Ā Ā Ā  The argument that I am proposing is that many bronze vessels were land grants or surveyor plats. I argue that the attached image is an orchard and describe the irrigation and intercropping.

    Julia could put your request into our newsletter that all licensed surveyors receive and you could get someone local to Toronto....

    Dear Mr. Jones,

    That sounds very interesting. Please contact me directly (see my profile)Ā and we'll see what is possible. I enjoy public speaking and can usually find appropriate metaphors to "turn on the light bulb." I will need to learn a bit more of what you've learned about bronze memorials.

      I have read many of your postings and, as a non-surveyor, have found them very useful. Is this a convenient way to communicate?

        I would expect e-mail would be more convenient. Please check my profile. One should be able to see my address there.

    Very Cool!

How to use Forums
Our forums on Land Surveyors United are here to be used as much for finding help with problems in the field as the are for you to express your opinions on anything that has to do with land surveying in general. Feel free to share anything that is on your mind, as long as it isn't meant to damage another member's reputation. Please keep it clean and help insure that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of being part of a community that grows together.

We are committed to allowing freedom of expression for all of our members, and that includes maintaining a safe space for people with opposing views to express themselves. We get posts from all over the country and even the globe, so needless to say, people come with different viewpoints on lad surveying practices and processes. We see this diversity and variety as a real strength-- dialogue and debate are an integral part of the educational process, as well as an important tool in exploring different sides of complex issues.

All Community Hubs inside the community have their own forum for asking specific questions to other surveyors, by location, equipment type, etc.
