Weekly show by surveyors, for surveyors and those they serve

Gaithersburg, MD - February 7, 2011 - The American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ACSM) announced in late January a new program for surveyors and mappers across the U.S. The program, “ACSM Radio Hour,” airs on America’s web radio (www.americaswebradio.com) every Monday at 11:00 am EST.

Sponsored by Parker-Davis Quik Stakes, the hour-long show is hosted by ACSM Executive Director Curt Sumner. Interviews with individuals connected with surveying in some way will be emphasized. Topics relevant to the surveying and mapping profession in the U.S. are welcome as suggestions for discussion, and can be e-mailed to the host at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it .
The introductory show aired on January 24th. The following week, Jack Breed, PLS, discussed matters of concern in Florida, including a challenge to the definition of surveying and mapping and the Qualifications Based Selection (QBS) process for procuring the services of professional surveyors. The February 7th ACSM Radio Hour featured Gary Kent discussing the 2011 ALTA/ACSM Land Title Survey Standards which go into effect on February 23rd.

Sumner’s guests for upcoming shows in February include: Sarah Ice (with the consulting firm Dewberry) who will be discussing FEMA issues and Letters of Map Amendment (LOMA); David Doyle with National Geodetic Survey (NOAA/NGS) who will be discussing geodesy from its origins to its present-day use in daily life; and Don Falken with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) who will be discussing the importance of survey technicians to the surveying profession, and the NSPS Certified Survey Technician (CST) program.

To listen in live to the forthcoming shows, visit www.americaswebradio.com and select “Listen”. An archive of past shows can be accessed by those who cannot listen live, at http://www.radiosandysprings.com/showpages/ACSM.php.
