I would like to preface this post with the fact that I have been lurking on this website for the past 5 years or so. I have learned a lot from the conversions I have viewed on this forum. A lot of smart people here. I am a mapping professional of sorts and have done a lot of conservation and agricultural infrastructure projects in NY & PA (mostly in NY now). I have done quite a bit topo surveying and stakeout, GPS & GIS mapping. Worked with dairy and crop producers using GPS (precision agriculture) and variable rate integration on farms. Also had a short stint of doing LiDAR classification and photogrammetry work. I would not call myself a surveyor of any sorts, but have a lot of respect for all that surveying does (as well as the other mapping professionals out there). Thanks for letting me look over your shoulders on this board for such a long time and looking forward to maybe passing along some of the things I have learned.

Sounds as though we have some common history.  Did you spend some time at Cornell or Penn State?

Got a degree in Forestry/Wood Products Engineering from Environmental Science & Forestry in Syracuse. The forestry gig up here in NY has been a little rough the past decade. So, agriculture kind of found me, I have meet some great people and seen a lot of different farms in the past 12 years or so.

Welcome aboard Eiffel.  Maybe we'll bump into each other some time.  I spend most of my time in the western Finger Lakes area.

30 degrees in Arkansas this morning.

Stove is going.

I fed the ducks and chickens extra corn this morning. Welcome to this forum. There's more ahead, in surveying, than we yet have imagined.

Surveying is more than a Job----it is a passion to provide a foundation for future generation, that is beyond reproach.

I have family in the Naples area, so you never know! 🙂

Welcome aboard, always good to hear from another Yorker. I exited for the Left Coast just about 50 years ago. Originally from Monroe. You can’t go wrong hanging with this bunch. ?
