Burk Cornelius is a licensed land surveyor in Oklahoma, Kansas and Arkansas. He has been involved in land surveying since 1980 when he began working for his father's land surveying business in southwest Oklahoma.
For centuries, survey documents have been recorded, archived and retrieved through state and county recorders. This mechanism has served the surveying profession well throughout history, and surveyors have accepted the system's limitations without question. But when I first heard about HubTack, a company based in Naperville, Ill., that offers a subscription-based service to obtain monument records and other land survey records via the Internet, I thought it was a fairly novel concept that made a lot of sense.
