Editorial: Watchman on the Wall
In this issue we have Dick Elgin's open letter to NCEES which details why the proposals before us are bad ideas. We also have the NCEES response to my Fire Alarm editorial. Lately we've been asked why we are devoting so much coverage to the licensure experience requirement when many say ....

Open Letter: Regarding NCEES and Survey Licensing
I thank the Council for its many years of work assisting state boards, preparing exams and for generally advancing the surveying profession and contributing to protecting the public. Your stated missions are worthy. However, as stated in the Council's December, 2014 "Exchange," ....

The Curt Brown Chronicles: Similarity of New Zealand and U.S. Laws

Tunnel Vision - Excavating Subsea Roadways
Workers who blast tunnels 290 meters below the ocean's surface have plenty of "what-ifs" to consider. Technology failures and project budgets shouldn't be among them. So contractors working on Norway's Ryfast tunnel megaproject are using ....

Geodetic Preppers - Surviving the Next OPUS Disaster
