Editorial: A Perfect Storm
As I was assembling the material for this issue, I came to believe that because three of the articles are interrelated, they represent a perfect storm. First is Mike Pallamary's article about a two million dollar screw-up in Rhode Island. A civil engineer prepared a site plan, which included ....

Book Review: Modernizing American Land Records: Order Upon Chaos
In order to appreciate Modernizing American Land Records, by Earl Epstein and Bernard Niemann, Jr. (Esri Press, 2014) readers must have the ability to set aside their paradigms about what constitutes "land records" in the twenty-first century. If we consider the tremendous amount of "data" ....

Vantage Point: Unseating Mineral Claims
Sometimes one piece of news relates to another in a chance encounter that makes both stand out more than they might separately, as happened in May of this year.
