A light-hearted blog about all things geomatic as seen through the filter of Ruth Adams, a chartered surveyor. It won't be comprehensive, it'll be hydro biased but, hey, it may make you smile ;-)

CPS 98 - Conscientious Objectors Survey America
Enjoyed reading this article about CPS 98 the "odd geodetic survey crew". I'd never thought what a nation would 'do' with conscientous objectors. There were 43,000 in the US and, from what I read, the ones who turned to surveying had a good time. Less so those who 'volunteered' to be human guinea pigs in medical experiments. No thanks. Give me a tent and a theodolite everytime.
