Hello Amerisurv user... This is an interim newsletter to update you on a couple of things:

First, in my last newsletter I mentioned that I was going to be posting Fred Roeder's articles. This is complete (80+ articles!) and the response has been phenomenal. Google Alerts picked up the articles and some of them have been downloaded hundreds of times. You can check them out here: Fred Roeder's articles
Our April/May issue is at the printer now, and as usual, I'll be sending my monthly newsletter with all the new articles soon. My editorial in the next issue will contain an extensive recap of SPAR 2009 and the Carlson User Conference, but you can get a sneak peek at my second announcement by scrolling down.
As always, please don't hesitate to contact me if you've got a project or story you'd like to share.
Thanks for your support.
Until next time,
Marc Cheves, LS
Editor
The American Surveyor

Day, night, week-end, holiday, you name it... Amerisurv is updated 24/7 with the latest news and announcements affecting today's Land Surveying professional. Below are some of the latest items of interest.

feature As part of my most recent road trip I attended the 2nd Annual Carlson User Conference in Lexington, Kentucky. Although attendance was down this year, the same number of companies was represented, which means that companies only sent one or two people instead of four or five. Several keynotes were given, including two which we videotaped. First was Bruce Carlson's introduction which can be found HERE.

The second video is of the keynote made by Brent Jones, the industry manager for surveying, engineering and cadastral at ESRI. This highly entertaining video is a must watch as Brent describes the past and future of surveying, and points the way for location and measurement professionals. You can see it HERE.

Finally, as part of Juniper Systems CEO Rob Campbell's keynote, he showed an outrageous video of a Carlson Surveyor data collector being severely abused. Juniper employees threw one off the roof of the Juniper building and even used one to hold up a truck! Campbell warned that such treatment would invalidate the warranty, but it is a testament to the ruggedness of the Surveyor. You can see this video HERE.
