The GIS coordinator for a local rural county is being sued by the surveying association. She was out GPS-ing fire hydrants for their assets inventory and a local surveyor "caught" her "surveying" with out a license and reported her. The inital State Department of Education finding is that taking coordinates with GPS is indeed surveying. I personally think this is crap, and just the surveyors defending their "territory". If it is determined that GPS-ing is indeed surveying, then municipalities that don't have licensed surveyors on staff will have to farm this out to a firm and pay beau coup bucks to have something done that their staff intern had been previously doing for $6 an hour. So now this whole big court thing is going on u[ there that other municipalities are nervously watching. Is anyone else dealing with this?
