The following information sent to me explains in detail what the issue is, how to voice your opinion on this matter, and how to le

The position of the sun is very important for nearly every land surveying job. I found this google maps mashup for you to check out which may come in handy (via Google Maps Mania)

SunCalc is a great Google Maps based tool for finding the position ofthe sun and the sunrise and sunset times for any location on the Earth.

The thought of writing a book never entered my mind until this story came to me in a dream one night. I also wanted to show a little love for my friends and family through the characters in the book.
