My Surveying Experience


Oviedo, FL


October 3

I am here because I am a...

Just a surveyor

Please tell other members why you are here:

I started Surveying with the Seabees in Vietnam in 1968. Have gone the gauntlet starting as a chainman, rodman, crewchief, surveyor in training to head surveyor with an engineering company. I have had my own business for about 20 years. I am very concerned about our profession going by the wayside and being replaced with GIS people who know very little about real property and title problems and solutions. I would like to be involved with the separation of the two professions but creation of a working environment that both share. I am fully aware of the significance of the technology that exist and its meaningful relationship with the Land Surveying aspect. I look forward to the GIS community developing a good working relationship with the Surveying Community that will enchance the capability of both Professions.

I have experience with the following

Share Your Survey Experience

Enjoy, explore and contribute to our community....a living library of land surveying which is not controlled by 3rd party interests- it is controlled by you, the surveyor. No one else in the world aside from our community members catalogs changes in the surveying industry. No one else collects, curates and showcases the importance of land surveyors to society for future generations to learn from and to promote public awareness of this importance. It takes just a few moments per week to curate a rock solid legacy in surveying but every minute you spend sharing your experience will breathe ten years of life into the profession.

    The US Navy probably has the most opportunities for training in the land surveying profession and industry than any other single organization.  I was not a Seabee, myself, but I am proud and thankful for all who are now serving and for those who made it home, and especially for those were not quite so lucky.
