Surveyors are usually a tough bunch and don’t normally retreat from difficulties. If a corner falls in an inhos­pitable place, such as the edge of a frozen beaver pond, or on the top of a rocky cliff, they go there and search, but sometimes discretion is the better part of valor.

Aerial Efficiency - New imaging technology makes electric line inspections faster and easier

https://www.xyht.com/aerialuas/aerial-efficiency/

With 174 miles of transmission line to capture and the need for fine detail images for inspection analysis, SkySkopes turned to a helicopter platform with a 100-megapixel (MP) camera to produce RGB photographs for quick project turnarounds.

Turning sadness into global action, learn the backstory of why International Surveyors Week is so important to me - any why it should be important to you as a hashtag #surveyor #landsurveying #surveying
What a wonderful post: I am one of those 88 year old surveyor who talks to the trees and birds. the forests and boundary surveys are my home.
Asa retired California Land Surveyor, I receive the XHHT monthly magazine. I am interested in the laws which pertain to the use of UAVs (drones) and the surveyor's right of entry. I experienced an "invasion of privacy" recently by a surveyor who was using a drone for aerial data collection whereby he flew the drone over my property without advance notification. He was working on a proposed cell site next door but flew past an open bathroom window on my house while my wife was taking a bath on a warm summer day. She was somewhat taken by surprise. Has anyone submitted any articles on this subject? I would like to know more about the legal responsibilities associated with the use of UAV or UAS.

I am in need of a user manual for a TOPCON GTS-3D. Not a 3, not a 3B, not a 3C. Original, copy, or scan will be OK. Please reply to ingramATcfwDOTcom
Some cool aerial footage of an Antelope running across our job site. It's part of aerial video we recently collected for an engineering construction project in Utah. See our website for more details. arizonasurveying.com https://youtu.be/CVa40vIFAZE
This was an interesting historic survey we did near Winslow, Arizona. Check it out :-)
FYI - Your Archives Page for Professional Surveyor Magazine expired on June 25th, which may have been on purpose, but it means that those of use using problems from the old "Problem Corner" as teaching aids for our future-surveyor kids, can no longer check the results of our work. Just an FYI. Thanks!
