Editorial 
Thought Leader: The Incredible 5000 Mile Odyssey of a Survey Marker
One evening in early 2013 with nothing else to do I was browsing the Internet idly searching surveying-related stories. I discovered a TV news story broadcast by KIRO-TV in Seattle, Washington about a charter boat captain, who on March 31, 2012, found an unusual looking plastic stake, with ....

Vantage Point: The Longer (Wetter) View
Every dam, levee, berm, sea wall, or other structure intended to restrain or divert water from its natural course has an inherent risk of failure, whether due to aging, improper construction, inadequate design, or unexpected volumes of water overcoming even the strongest and newest ....

The Curt Brown Chronicles: Challenging Future for the Land Surveyor
The purpose of any registration act is to protect the public from the unqualified. It is certainly not a means of granting to a few an easy means of earning a living to the exclusion of others. As a condition of licensing, the public has a right to expect that those who are licensed are qualified ....

20,000 Feet - A Challenge of Mountainous Proportions
Centuries ago, Alaska Natives first christened America's highest mountain with the indigenous Athabasacan name of Denali, meaning "The Great One." And it is indeed great in both height and stature. From as far back as 1897, the mountain was ....

Conflict? Surveyors, Not the Supreme Court, Create Confusion
After reading Mike Pallamary's The Supreme Court Introduces Confusion and Conflict in Boundary Law (March 2015 TAS), feedback over the past few months, and Chuck Karayan's counterpoint, U.S. Supreme Court Reduces Confusion and Conflict in Boundary Law (June 2015 TAS), I feel the ....

From Snow's Sting to Solar King
If there is still any doubt in anyone's mind that the renaissance taking place in Buffalo, N.Y. is real, they need look no further than the project unfolding at the site of the former Republic Steel plant in South Buffalo. There, local construction mainstay ....

The Final Voyage - Part 4
Fellow surveyors Alvin and Peter, our cook Jeff and yours truly were taking the Seloohge to the village of Hughes. After surviving an eventful passage down the Tanana and Yukon Rivers, we now found ourselves on the Koyukuk, going upriver. The rest of our group had split off in Tanana and were ....

The HP 35s Calculator - A Field Surveyor's Companion: Part 12 - Resection
Most of the programming work we've experienced thus far is no more than reliable math being indisputable as to its singular solution. This multiple point Resection should offer a good solution but not an exact solution in ....

FeedBack
It is unfortunate that Mr. Leininger wrote an entire column that completely misled his readers with a patently false proposition and a flagrant misrepresentation of the 2011 ALTA/ACSM Standards. The very first sentence of his column states "Did you realize that the 2011 ALTA/ ACSM ....

Test Yourself: Stationing a Curve
What are the stations of the PC and the PT if stationing increases left to right? RB=334.260', AC=234.567'. PI STATION=10+00. For a sketch and the the solution to this problem (and much more), please visit our website at: www.amerisurv.com. Good luck! ....

Reconnaissance: Professional Surveyors: Where and Who Art Thou?
As I have traveled the country this year, several interrelated themes keep coming up. One is something I have not heard in a while: "Where can I find good people?" Back in ancient times (pre-2007), I heard that question constantly, then for about 7 years, not at all. But now it's back ....
