We’ve got two new ways you can support our teaching work at Redefined Horizons. The first way is to become a member on our Patreon account. If you become a member of us on Patreon, you make a small monthly donation to fund our work. This also gives you access to resources we release early, exclusively to our Patreon members.
The second way to support us is by becoming a sponsor. You can sponsor our videos, digital magazines, or podcasts. Sponsors have an opportunity to be recognized on our web site for their support, and to deliver their message to our audience.
Why do we need your help? We release all of our learning resources under a Creative Commons license. That means you don’t have to pay for the content, and the content can be freely shared. However, we still need to pay our bills. This includes costs for software, web hosting, and help with the production and editing of our media.
We are pleased to announce the publication of 3 new articles on land surveying written by Landon Blake. The articles were published in Issue #186 of the California Surveyor Magazine. The articles are entitled:
Monument Destruction – Why Does It Continue? Why Do We Allow It?

A Review Of IBLA 37-132
You can download Issue #186 of the California Surveyor Magazine on the CLSA web site.
Landon is the volunteer editor for the California Surveyor Magazine. He is now working on Issue #187, which will include these articles:
The Challenge of Land Surveyors and Civil Engineers In Private Practice

We are pleased to announce a new video library featuring training videos for land surveyors! The video library includes playlists on Trimble Business Center, project management using Trello, working with raster imagery in LizardTech GeoViewer. Take a look at our Redefined Horizon Video Page to watch the videos, or check out the Redefined Horizons YouTube channel.
I’ve just published the latest issue of the Cornerstone Boundary Surveying Newsletter. In this issue we continue our article series on preparing boundary survey maps and GIS for linear boundaries. We also review a boundary dispute court case from California and an IBLA decision on PLSS surveys from Idaho.
I’ve just published the February 2018 Issue of the California Supremes on Land and Water. In this issue we review the Supreme Court decision in Lynch Versus The California Coastal Commission.
The dispute, in this case, revolves around a permit to rebuild a seawall protecting two homes on top of a cliff on the California Coast.
I’ve chosen to review this court decision because it is a recent California Supreme Court case that raises and answers important questions about permits and permit conditions regulating land use in California.
