Understand what related professions are doing in regards to Continuing Education and if it's beneficial or even a requirement at all. Two of the four professions (AIA & GISP) have an education requirement to sustain valid licensure. Let's hear their journey in the legislative process and the results thereof. Also there are issues with enforcement and the benefits/ impediments that come with it. We can all learn from each other's successes or failures, and this can assist us in determining if a Continuing Education requirement is a regulation worth pursuing.

Topic: “Exploring the Non-Mapchecking Model of AZ”.

 

Mr. Schneider will be discussing the Arizona model of map submittals and the effects on standard of care.  Unlike California, there is not statute law requiring a County Surveyor to check maps.  With the ever increase on map submittals fees, the profession has continually brought forth the question on "do we need mapchecking?" It's time for a substantive discussion on what the other side of the coin looks like.

Doug Schneider is in his 20th year working for Rick Engineering’s Tucson office as the survey department supervisor. He is also an Associate with the firm and corporate Vice President. He was first registered as an Arizona Land Surveyor in 1984 and is also licensed as a professional land surveyor in Nevada, Utah and California. He is the current chairman of the Arizona Land Surveyors Association and serves on the Arizona Board of Technical Registration Enforcement Advisory Committee.

CLSA Webinar: Hybrid Survey Networks

CLSA Webinar: Hybrid Survey Networks

Presented by Daniel Gillins, Ph.D.

Existing NGS height modernization surveying guidelines require long-duration static GNSS baseline observations(e.g.,NGS-58) to derive ellipsoid heights with network accuracies less than 5cm at 95%confidence.

In an effort to develop a more efficient approach, this study explored the idea of creating a hybrid network by combining NRTK baseline observations from a RTN with static postpro-cessed baseline observations and performing a simultaneous least-squares adjustment.

2018 San Bernardino Initial Point Hike
Jun

6:00 AM06:00

2018 San Bernardino Initial Point Hike

Flyer

It is that time for Land Surveyors to unite and make the
pilgrimage to the Initial Point in San Bernardino! Weather
permitting, the Riverside/San Bernardino and Orange
County chapters of CLSA are organizing a group hike to the
Initial Point on Saturday, June 2nd.

Please be sure to be prepared by reading below:
• Get out and get your body warmed up with smaller hikes.
• You should have a well broken in, sturdy pair of hiking boots or trail
running shoes, as the trail is rocky in places.
• Purchase an Adventure Day Pass if you are parking your car at the
trailhead (Big 5; REI sells them), or carpool and save driving/parking
costs.
• Be sure to pack a minimum of 2-3 liters of water, snacks, and a lunch
• RSVP to Tom Herrin is mandatory (see left) so he can acquire trail
permits for the group (The Ranger checked us on the trail last time).
• The hike is about 16 miles round trip & climbs about 4600 feet
(10,649 ft altitude). If you are reasonably fit, you can do this hike!

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

CLSA Webinar: GPS on BM Initiative for California

Our NGS State Coordinator (Scott Martin) and NGS Regional Advisor (Dana Caccamise) will present.

Register as a member or non-member at the CLSA Store

https://www.californiasurveyors.org/secure/login_checkout.asp

CLSA is proud to support the National Geodetic Survey's "2018 - GPS on Benchmarks" program. The program is simply a crowdsourcing call to citizen surveyors to collect GPS observations on NGS NAVD88 benchmarks and share these data with NGS. These collected data will be used to first to create the next hybrid- Geoid 18, then be the basis for the future conversion tool(s) to the upcoming 2022 datum and gravimetric geoid. This effort is an essential component in tying recent GPS observations and solutions to the current national vertical datum - NAVD88.

CLSA recognizes the importance of this program, is tracking progress and actively mobilizing our community. With your help, we can contribute to better heights for years to come. Our goal is to densify the data, hopefully avoid NGS extrapolating geoid data over very large distances uncontrolled. We can git-R-Done!

For more detailed overview see:

CLSA is making every effort to avoid duplication of observations and track our success. Please communicate plans and forward your OPUS solutions to GPSonBMs@californiasurveyors.org
