Description

As part of their work, surveyors, engineers and other disciplines use information published on data sheets published by the National Geodetic Survey (NGS). However many have difficulty finding the information they want in these data sheets. In this course former NGS Chief Geodetic Surveyor Dave Doyle, explains the many types of data sheets. He goes through the entire sequence of information and provides many helpful tips so that this course can serve as the “secret decoder ring” for many. In addition, Dave discusses DSWORLD, a program contributed toan NGS program that all users can access to view control mark locations against a Google Earth backdrop, but to also participate in a crowd sourcing activity that NGS encourages, but which is not widely known, to update mark location information and to add photographs to aid future mark visitors. Copious example data sheets that are discussed in the course are part of the downloadable materials that come with this course.
