When I started my career, I have been attracted by one (of many) question : how accurate is the surface/volume calculations knowing the uncertainties of the points that define these geometrical figures. I really wanted to know in term of standard deviation what would be the "end results".
The solution was to propagate the variances (standard deviation squared) into the functional model (the…Read more →
Most of the GNSS Network RTK projects have been developed by the economical justification that an active geodetic network would reduce the cost of maintaining a traditional geodetic network where the maintenance of the benchmarks and the control survey were a significant part of the ownerís budget.…Read more →

Here is a typical Surveyor's Report attached to many of the jobs that I do. This particular Land Survey was extremely complex and difficult but I thought you might get a kick out of seeing how this is done. The names and other information have been altered to protect the…Read more →
Plotting while measuring saves time and make the drawing accurate with no ambiguities. Creating accurate drawings is painless with a Bluetooth enabled DISTO device. If you paired the Distometer with AutoCAD mobile app, the Plotting can be done simultaneously.
First turn on Bluetooth in both devices and pair them. See the image below.…Read more →

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.
