Topic Description

Surveying and Engineering: Past, Present and Future


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.
