This course will explore the causes behind the pincushion effect, which include misunderstanding of surveying rules and laws, and attempt to point to solutions found in case of law and common sense. No set of rules will ever be able to cover surveying situation. Even our Standards of Practice recognize that there must be room for professional judgment. The purpose of this course is to show the other side of the coin, if you will, to the boundary determination survey problem.

This course should be of interest to surveyors, engineers and other professionals working with them.
