My name is Chris P and I live in the beautiful state of Montana. I came here in hope of gaining some knowledge about the basics of surveying. I work in the warehouse of a surveying supply company here in Montana. I don't want to work in the warehouse for years upon years and could really use some advice on gaining knowledge about surveying. I looked around this site and found some really informative videos, and tutorials. However, they all seemed to be geared towards experienced surveyors. I feel that if I could learn the fundamentals of surveying i.e. terms, the way different instruments work, and just a general framework of surveying, it would really impress my co-workers. Any suggestions of books, videos, websites that could help me gain a grasp of the fundamentals of surveying would be very much appreciated.
