Field notes are the record of the eyes of the surveyor. An honest, comprehensive, and accurate set of field notes allows future surveyors to walk in the very footsteps of their predecessors. This course will examine the qualities of the field notes.

I have been involved with the Profession for 50 years.  Registered in 1992 and licensed in 2000.
Received my part 107 in 2017 and certified on the Leica Aibot drone.
Work with my father J.N. Newton, from childhood through 2004, when my wife Laurie and I started Where On Earth, Inc., January 2005, now located in Lubbock, Texas.
Currently my passion is to help others develop a desire to do their best, exceling in the level of the Profession they feel comfortable in.  I believe knowledge of how surveying began to how technology has advanced and how to recognize the respectful transition of that technology.
