LTE: Letters to the Editor
Professional Surveyor Magazine - August 2010
I just wanted to let you know that I thought your editorial
was excellent. It was right on the mark regarding the future of surveying. I have thought for about eight to nine years that the surveyor can play a key role as a data manger, etc. in a large project.
The whole magazine was a great step up from previous issues and a heck of a lot better than your competitor. I appreciate that it wasn't one long ad for high def scanning.
Anyway, I just like to let people know when they are doing a great job. Keep up the good work!

An article by William Schmidt discussed The Official Ohio Lands Book
which was distributed at a meeting of the Surveyors Historical Society Rendezvous in Akron in 2008. Please provide the contact info to allow me to get a copy of this publication. Thank you.

Hi Mr. Aubell,
Here's a link to the book being sold through Amazon.com.
And here's a link to download the book directly to your computer, if you prefer.

gives data to 1/100 and then the answers are given to the nearest 1/100000. It seems in this day and age that, with the use of computers and such, folks are measuring and calculating at far different ends of the spectrum and may not even know the difference.
Maybe someone could/should write an article about significant figures, precision, accuracy
