Summer Meeting Topics

  • Interactive ethics discussion – discussion about ongoing issues that are presented to land surveyors while using an app that will give instant, anonymous feedback from the audience on where they fall on the issues.
  • Everyday Robotic/Scanner- a presentation by Frontier Precision on how to extract the necessary information using Trimble Business Center and TopoDOT.
  • Tree Identification – Today as much as ever, proper tree identification when placing ties or interpreting historical evidence is a needed skill for both professionals and their staff.
  • The millennial surveyor – Take a look at what students and young adults are saying are the major factors when it comes to picking a career path. Also look into the MSPS Career origins survey that gives a better understanding of what go current land surveyors into the profession and how we can use this to recruit more into the profession.
