In a new subdivision, Satellite background image was not updated so I used my drone to GeoReference my drone image to draw in the road.Watch the video on YouTube

  • Hello my fello adventurer - I hope life has blessed you in your endeavors - what's new?
  • Hello Montano,


    Thanks for the association, I look forward to talking with you!



  • Here , in Romania start the winter. Isn't a pleasure...for us...when we have this job but... it is ok, we know - after winter start again a nice time in primetemps.
  • Hey There Montano!
    I'm attempting to get better educated in the GPS Systems. I have been involved in the Operating Engineers' training programs (Grade Check/Grade Engineer etc.) and have also attended Trimble's 'boot camp' re: machine control systems.
    I'm presently completing my 'intermediate' AutoCAD class through UAF in Fairbanks, Alaska. I have personal experience in machine controls, including Topcon's Laser system also. I have been attending the UAF Mine Surveying Class which unfortunately has over 20 students in attendance. (It had been promoted as a student - instructor ratio of six to one, some had been informed seven to one).
    KEY Point: I have the books from the class, So I'm attempting to locate someone who could assist me when I'm in a situation which 'stumps me'.
    I'm 'Totally Aware' of the necessity of learning as much as possible to place myself in a better position to 'not get left behind' in this ever fast paced and growing GPS Arena.
    Not only do we have 'current as well as ongoing new and existing roadwork and ice road location issues' here in Alaska but we also have pipeline and mine work.
    Seems to me, it is critical to be 'On Top of our Game' here. Especially when much of our work location temperatures could reach 50F below zero.
    Thanks for 'any' direction you could assist in.
  • Thanks for having me!

  • Hi Montano. Work for Lone Star College-Montgomery in The Woodlands (Houston). We have a Land Surveying and Mapping Technology Program. We're developing an Educators Conference to teach high school math, geography teachers about the field. They'll get lesson plans and ideas to take back to their classrooms. Check it out at:
