THOMAS J. ERTLE & ASSOCIATES, LLC AND TECHNOLOGY
Since the early 90’s, the surveying profession has technologically advanced itself well beyond a steel chain (tape), transit, dumpy level, Philadelphia rod, slide rule, book of logarithms, ink pens and parchment paper or velum. For most, this was the prescribed methodology for over two hundred years of surveying and engineering. Through the 90’s, computers have enhanced the profession. In today’s world, our survey equipment include highly accurate total stations reading angles to the second of a degree and distances to the millimeter, electronic data collectors which link directly to the main computers in the office ensuring that there are no scribbners errors, Global Positioning Systems (GPS) to pinpoint our position on the face of the planet within a millimeter or so and keeping errors to a minimum on large boundary projects, robotics to ensure there are no human induced errors, high order leveling equipment which read a bar code rather than numbers guaranteeing a plumb rod, balanced level run and correct readings and surveying and mapping CAD Stations for highly precise calculations and to present all of our work in the most precise manor.
