Check out the Youtube Short called "Surveyor" 0 R. Muzika   https://youtu.be/K7jSkZHw65A     I thought I would share this YouTube find.  A  25minute independent movie with an interesting historical survey perspective.  A bit dark perhaps.  The lone surveyor seems unlikely though.    RM    Surveyor (short film) Published on Sep 10, 2013 Intriguing anti-western by first time director Scott Blake. A story of a government surveyor circa 1848 on a trek home after surveying land on the Western frontier. It's a highly accomplished period piece with meticulous attention to detail re: costumes, props, location. A rare formalist feat by a young filmmaker who appears to have no interest in the rickety realism he has every right making at his age, 26...(cont'd from main page): Surveyor may require a little patience - it begins minimally and is long for a short at 25 minutes - but it's far from stagnant, and includes a notable last minute pivot into hallucinatory darkness. What begins as a rigorous exercise unfolds like a gothic nightmare - you can't quite make sense of it all, but it feels real. Impressive and mysterious debut film.

CALL OKIE Problems 9 B. Cornelius It has been well documented that some surveyors have varying degree of success when requesting utility locates from Oklahoma One Call System, Inc (OKIE811). We also know that the issue is with the sub-contractor actually marking the utilities, not with OKIE811.Jerry West, from OKIE811 attended the OSLS Annual Convention earlier this year and took a lot of input from the OSLS membership as to what was happening with regard to survey locate requests. Jerry took those concerns, along with concerns from Engineers in the State back to the OKIE811 Board and Operating Committee and they have made some changes in order to hopefully alleviate the problem.The OKIE811 Operating Board released the following announcementEffective October 1, the work type of “Survey” will be removed from our locate request system. For those that need lines located for planning projects, instead of “Survey” as your work type, you will need to specify the type of excavation that is being planned. For example, if you are requesting lines be located so you can decide where to install sewer lines, then you will specify "sewer" as your work type. If you’re unsure about the work type, then specify "Other”. By no longer having a “work type” called “Survey”, the utility locate sub-contractor will not be able to place those requests on a lower priority as they have been doing in the past.The type of request will now solely be based on the type of work you are doing or planning. Some of the work types that you will likely now be using are (only a partial list)• Drainage• Sewer• Water• New Construction• Road Construction• OtherList of Utility Companies OnlyThe process for obtaining a list of subscribing utility companies without having them marked has not changed. On the OKIE811 website (www.callokie.com) Click on “Excavators” then “Types of Utility Locates” or Click this direct link http://www.callokie.com/excavators/types-of-locate-requests At the bottom of that page there is a section called “Design Work – List of Companies Only”Fill in the information requested and submit the request. The legal description only needs to include the ¼ Section, Section, Township and Range (not the entire legal description)OKIE811 also has a really nice mobile app for both Android or iPhone devices. It can be downloaded for free from the Apple Store or the Google play Store by searching OKIE811
