Surveyors, for the most part, are an analytical and systematic bunch, perhaps more so than other professions. I, on the other hand, work in an industry that is comprised of a smorgasbord of professionals ranging from scientists, geophysicists, engineers, contractors, locating technicians and a few bureaucrats. With this variety of professionals, it is often difficult to define any standards of care to our work. And in our industry--the subsurface utility engineering industry--standards are much needed.
