Hello Land Surveying World!

Welcome to my blog. I begin writing my blog to communicate and share my experiences with the land surveying and related professional communities. I hope that some of what I've learned over the years will be useful to you.

I also hope to spark some discussion and to learn from you. Please let me know if there is something you think I've missed, could learn from you, or if you have a topic or question you would like covered or answered. I may not have the answer, but together we can work on figuring it out.

Lastly, a shameless plug - you can always go to my land surveying company website FosterSurvey.com for additional browsing.

    Great to see a surveying blog. I am a lecturer in Scotland and I teach land surveying. I am however not a surveyor by profession more by default. There are from time to time instances that I require help as I am a one man show. I hope you will be in a position to help me out from time to time.

    Best regards


    PS Great blog

    I tried to find a place to set up my login but did not see a way so I am trying this. If you get this, check out my website http://www.gbreisch.com and we can connect via this maybe and email is my preferred network tool and form of communication.

    To All:

    In response to Gary’s comment about being able to login (which wasn’t available when he commented – no wonder he couldn’t find it… My fault and apologies to Gary and anyone else this inconvenienced) I now allow anyone to register as a subscriber and then in the future you can login using your user name and password.

    If you look at the sidebar on the right side of my blog, near the bottom, there is a section called “META”. The first link in this section is Register, which will lead you to a form to become a subscriber on this blog site. In the future I will add additional content/newsletter/prizes for those who sign up. Keep tuned in.

    I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind talking about file & project management organization. Companies I’ve worked at have always use numerical filing with microsoft access.
