This course will include historical information on how projects were completed (e.g., data gathering & compilation, calculations, plan preparation, presentation, and approval process), current issues and challenges (lack of historical perspective, liability & ethical issues, increasing complexity - regulations, involved parties, construction process, financing, and client relationships), and trends for the future (education, over-confidence in technology, dealing with the morass of regulatory controls, building & maintaining relationships, and protecting the health/safety/welfare of the public). Examples will be given from historical G.L.O and U.S.C.&G.S. surveys. Opinions will be offered on retracement survey methods in metes-and-bounds tracts and platted subdivisions. Suggestions will be provided on job set-up, record indexing & retrieval, plan & drawing preparation, and establishing reliable survey procedures.
