I Should Know That… But Its Been A While – Renee Powers

Let's revisit some basic and important topics related to plats, maps & the law that we all knew at one time but could use some refreshing.

What does this Button Do? – Steve Grady & Kevin Slottke

We have become a society of button pushers. We expect technology to work and be correct every time. What happens when the "box" does not give the answer we are expecting, or even worse no answer at all. In this presentation we will discuss the daisy chain of events that allows you to come up with a measurement. We will discuss GNSS constellations, different settings, device connections and how to avoid some common pitfalls with survey technology.
