NJ Geospatial Forum asks for surveyors help
from By J. Peter Borbas, PLS
The New Jersey Geospatial Forum has a Boundary Task group that is working on educating the GIS community, public and other professions (including lawyers, judges, engineers and planners) on the matter of boundaries. This task group came about after a court trial regarding alleged misuse of data in a community's GIS. The surveying community recognizes that many GIS data creators and users do not know what boundaries are, how they are created and how they may be modified. As surveyors, we are horrified as to what people are, and might be, doing with precise boundaries and other survey data inside a GIS.
