2018 San Bernardino Initial Point Hike

A few of our chapter members have in the past organized a hike to the San Bernardino Initial Point; this year they are planning it again. Consider this your "save the date".

I understand the hike is not a "walk in the park" (climbing 4,000 feet in elevation and about seven miles from the trailhead).

The trailhead parking lot is best reached with a higher-centered vehicle ... car pooling recommended because it fills and requires a pre-purchased pass. San Bernardino Peak Trail 1W07 

More information will be posted here  and on our FB page in the near future as the organizers set it up.

National Surveyors Week
Mar
18
to Mar 24

National Surveyors Week

By the President of the United States of America
A Proclamation

In the development of our country, the role of the surveyor has been of vital importance. In colonial days, surveyors were among the leaders in the community-statesmen, influential citizens, and shapers of cultural standards, including people such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. It was the surveyor's work that determined the boundaries of land, the greatest economic asset in the colonies. Thomas Jefferson chaired a committee in 1784 to devise a plan for disposing of lands west of the Thirteen Colonies. He argued that surveying before sale was necessary to prevent overlapping claims and to simplify deeds and registers. He reportedly wrote a plan which was debated in Congress, and in modified form was adopted as the Land Ordinance of May 20, 1785. The ordinance established the Public Land Survey System (PLSS)—the rectangular system that continues in effect today in 30 Midwestern and western states.

Since 1785, the nature of surveying has changed dramatically. No longer is surveying limited to the description and location of land boundaries. Today, hydrographic surveys are important to the use of all our bodies of water; engineering surveys are utilized in the study and selection of engineering construction; geodetic surveys determine precise global positioning for such activities as aircraft and missile navigation; and cartographic surveys are used for mapping and charting, including the use of photogrammetry, the science of using aerial photographs for measurement and map production. Many services are provided through the use of sophisticated equipment and techniques, such as satellite-borne remote sensing devices and automated positioning, measuring, recording, and plotting equipment.

In recognition of the significant contribution made by surveyors to the United States, the Congress, by Senate Joint Resolution 44, has authorized and requested the President to designate the week beginning on March 11, 1984, as "National Surveyors Week."

Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim the week beginning March 11, 1984, as National Surveyors Week. I urge the people of the United States to observe this week with appropriate ceremonies and activities paying tribute to professional surveyors and their contribution to society. I invite all Americans to look back at the historic contributions of surveying and look ahead to the new technologies which are constantly modernizing this honored and learned profession.

In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this 13th day of Feb., in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and eightyfour, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and eighth.

CRTN Coordinate Update

CRTN will transition to CSRS Epoch 2017.50 (NAD83) on March 1, 2018.

Stations in San Diego County transitioned on February 15 for testing purposes.

Please make sure your IP addresses are set to the following:

The Southern California IP Address (updated February 6, 2018) is 132.239.154.80, Port=2103

The Northern California IP address (updated August 5, 2017) is 132.239.152.175, Port=2103

Troubleshooting Tip - If your data collector is not connecting when you change IP addresses, please try creating a new “Survey Style,” which involves adding all the information including your username/password again.  Please email mariaturingan@ucsd.edu if you can’t find your username/password. 

List of Stations and Coordinates – please download the latest files: 

You can get a list of stations and coordinates from http://sopac.ucsd.edu/docs/CRTN_Access_2017.50.xlsx

and an interactive map at
http://sopac.ucsd.edu/crtn.shtml

or enter into Google Maps or Google Earth

CRTN AccountsCRTN Registration: Allow 7-10 days for an account to be set up.

CRTN Users Contact Information – please keep us updated:  Please email mariaturingan@ucsd.edu if the primary CRTN user’s email address has changed.  When we have CRTN updates, we want to make sure the user receives the information. 

Online Giving to CRTN – it’s quick and makes you feel good:  It’s easy to take a free service like CRTN for granted, but direct funding to keep CRTN operational is challenging and CRTN may not always be here due to lack of funding.  CSRC greatly appreciates the support of CRTN Consortium Members and their organizations (contributing $15K annually) and CRTN Contributing Members (contributing $1K annually per additional CRTN account).  Please use this link or contact mariaturingan@ucsd.edu for additional information regarding CRTN Membership.
