On December 14th, 2016 Landon Blake will be the volunteer instructor presenting a short version of his workshop “What Do Your Filed Survey Maps Say About You?”. In the workshop, Landon will talk about common shortfalls in the typical practices related to the drafting of filed survey maps. In the workshop, Landon will look at examples of filed survey maps and will talk about how they could be improved.
I’ll be speaking at the California State University Fresno GIS Day again this year. (GIS Day is on November 19, 2014.) Here is a description of the two (2) talks I will give that day:
Applications of GIS To Land Surveying and Civil Engineering
In this talk Landon will discuss projects from his career in which GIS has been successfully applied to land surveying and civil engineering projects. He will talk about the application of GIS to sanitary sewer networks, the Public Land Survey System, utility projects, flood control infrastructure, conservation projects, survey monument preservation, and large transportation projects. He’ll describe the open source tools he applied on these projects.
GIS Scripting With Java and Groovey
In this talk Landon will show the audience how they can get started in GIS programming with Java and Groovy. He’ll demonstrate how to leverage existing open source Java libraries for GIS and COGO in the Groovy scripting environment. He’ll share some potential applications of these programming tools and will describes students to contribute to the open source software that powers the GIS scripting environment in Java and Groovy.
On Saturday, January 26, 2013 I’ll be giving a talk entitled “The Basics of Linear Referencing in a GIS”. The talk will be given at the 52nd CSUF Geomatics Conference, in Clovis California.
The talk will explaing what linear referencing is, the problems it solves, and how it works. An example of linear referencing application to a GIS for stream flow measurement will be used as an example throughout the talk. At the end of the talk, an exercise in GIS design with linear referencing for bridge district operations will be performed with the audience.

On Friday, January 25, 2013 Landon Blake will be giving a talk entitled “Create a Land Subdivision Concept 3D Model in Trimble SketchUp”. The talk will be given at the 52nd CSUF Geomatics Conference, in Clovis California.
In this talk the audience will learn how to use Trimble SketchUp to create and render a 3D model of a small mixed use commerical and residential subdivision.
