NASA promotes $100k Land Survey Automation Challenge
I recently learned about a project challenge that is seeking innovative ways to use drones and high altitude platforms for land surveys. NASA to put out prize challenges to solve problems and spur innovation. NASA Land Survey Automation.
There will always be a need for boots on the ground for boundary work for a licensed surveyor. I'm not sure they understand this.
This will be interesting to follow.
Thanks for sharing.
This part pissed me off:
Can you disrupt an industry stuck in the stone age? Tech is sweeping across every single industry, turning traditional business models on their respective heads.
Next up? Land Surveys.
That's the problem.
We're not stuck in the stone age.
People just don't know what land surveying does still.
Maybe we start by requiring commercial real estate starts paying more attention to the value survey is bringing them rather than over inflation of the limited resource of retail space and housing because they are too greedy to be the biggest and most wealthy.
Surveying represents the truth, what's actually there on the ground and in reality.
In the new age of mouth piece social media influencers, truth has no more value.......
This thread appears to have a problem.
I owned a sound system Bill. Duly noted. If the compressor/limiter is dialed in, it's usually a stunt mic to drop, not say like a Senheiser MD441 which I had the displeasure of dropping and it was an expensive diaphragm to replace.
Lawn cut but not bagged. 😉
That further implies the devaluing of survey.
6.66x10-9 portion of 15 trillion. Screw you social media. I can build a website. Can you research find a defend a section corner or anything of value in land surveying?
(Mic left on stool in spotlight on full gain for massive feedback screech)
I just fell into a fun YouTube hole by searching directly on YT:
