Party Chief

UPDATED:  You can now find the Surveyors Handbook Here in Resources

This is PART TWO in the Surveying Resources and Links Series [part 1 here], which is all about online land surveying publications, links and industry blogs. There is a chance that something on this list could become extremely helpful to you some day so feel free to bookmark and/or share this list with your land surveying buddies. If there is something you'd like to add or a link that I missed, feel free to drop it below with a description in the comments so that everyone may benefit from this resource. Good Luck surveyors!
I intentionally left one section off of this list for "Surveying Blogs" in hopes that you will submit your favorite land surveying blogs and website links in the comments below. This will help us all gain a better understanding or what surveyors are actually reading and find useful.
