Professional surveyors are well aware of the duties that go with being licensed; protection of the public’s safety, health, welfare, and property as related to boundaries and correctly prepared legal descriptions. The public itself, and the governmental officials they elect, often do not realize the importance of the professional land surveyor. Today’s episode of “Surveyor Says! The NSPS Podcast” covers the topic of why licensure of surveyors is critical to public safety while attempts to include surveying in license deregulation will harm many aspects of property ownership and accurate descriptions. Our roundtable discussion includes Curt Sumner (NSPS Executive Director), Gary Kent (longtime ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey Chair), and Tim Burch (NSPS President-Elect) talk about how licensing varies nationwide, the multitude of land systems, and how the educational requirements must be a significant component in the path to licensure.

High precision measurement has become the norm thanks to technology, but surveyors are relied upon for their accuracy in establish, retracement and legal descriptions of real property. This discussion establishes several good talking points for our practitioner to use when deregulation comes knocking at their door. This is one episode of “Surveyor Says!” The NSPS Podcast you don’t want to miss!

After a short break to coordinate National Surveyor’s Week and Global Surveyor’s Day, we are back! We think we made up for the absence with this week’s offering.

This informative episode covers the importance of contracts with our resident Land Title Survey expert, Mr. Gary Kent, PLS. He recently sat down with Tim Burch to discuss why a signed contract is particularly important when performing and providing a Land Title Survey along with several good tips on protecting both the surveyor and client with a solid agreement. Gary stressed the importance of spelling out which Table A items are to be included along with making it clear that the standard surveyor certification is required for the final survey. Lots of great insight from the guru of the standards, so sit back and enjoy the conversation.

We have several great guests in the coming weeks along with a few surprise announcements from NSPS so make sure and subscribe wherever you listen. Also, check out our social media accounts for more information on upcoming episodes. Thanks for listening to “Surveyor Says!” The NSPS Podcast.

Welcome to the 100th episode of “Surveyor Says! The NSPS Podcast”!

When NSPS began the process for replacing its venerable “NSPS Radio Hour” on internet radio, we knew it would take some time, work, and learning some new skills to put together our own podcast.

This week is no different, as we meet our coordinators for the upcoming “Survey & GIS Summit” co-hosted by NSPS and URISA. Brent Jones (EP79) and Linda Foster (EP81) are leading the charge to bring a virtual conference event that has plenty to offer to the GIS and surveying professions together. Listen in on the details of the origin of the conference, evolution to today’s version, and where this endeavor can take both professions.

In my very first face to face interview... shall I say I was very nervous!!

I wasn’t sure if this conversation was going to be had, with the rival of Holden & Ford… But we’re grown adults & put our personal beliefs aside lol.

Tim is the Director of Locate & Map in Sydney specialising in Subsurface Utility mapping . Tim is a second gen surveyor and growing up he always wanted to be a surveyor by taking after his dad, although he did spend some time as directional driller. He has been in the industry for 15 years beginning his career with Lean Lackenby and Hayward & RMS. 

Tim and his Team just celebrated 7 years of business, very exciting!!!

We discussed the importance of culture within the business, the average age of his team, at 35 he is OLD, and the importance of inclusiveness and responsibility within the company. Data sharing in the locating industry, Implementation of 3d drain scanning, point cloud data, awareness of emerging technology, coding, mental health, kids, cars, podcasts & more cars. Dave & Adam from Surv3D were mentioned as was Paul & Geoff from Locators, Gordon Bell & Grant Kilpatrick (RIP), Two legends of the Surveying Industry. 

With a lot of laughs along the way.

Tim and his team are proud supporters of the Rural Fire Service. If you can help or support them every little bit helps. https://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/

He has an inquisitive nature and loves to always be learning. His motto is “a bad day in the field is better than a good day in the office”.

Born in Brisbane, he spent abt 11 years in Brissy before moving to Townsville in year 7 with his family for a few years.

A move to Goondiwindi in his early years of his career, with a young family, he says was the best move of his life at the time. Making Goondi their home, immersing themselves into the community, playing cricket, acting in a 3 man play & producing a few more kids. With no real particular planning of his career and working for a few small surveying companies he eventually chose the educational path. He took a position with USQ and went on to complete his PHD. Support from The Surveyors Trust has been approved for 2021 to help fund the students from the University to travel for residential camps. You can find Glenn on LinkedIn.

The use of coordinates as boundary evidence has emerged as a realistic method of practice. To date, there is little guidance for the State-licensed land surveyor to rely upon for consideration and application of the use of coordinates and to defend land surveys if challenged. This presentation will provide some examples of proper and improper use of coordinates and a review of the guidance and direction for using coordinates as boundary evidence in the BLM Manual of Surveying Instructions, 2009.
