The New York State Association of Professional Land Surveyors (NYSAPLS) 52nd Annual Surveyors Conference and Exhibition was held Wednesday 19th through Friday 21st of January 2011 at the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, New York.  The conference was exceptionally hosted and despite the snow storms and economic backdrop – was well attended.  Courses included Environment and Ethical Issues in Land Development, An Introduction to the new 2011 ALTA/ACSM Land Title Survey Standards, Future of the National Spatial Reference System as well as CST Exams and much more.  On the GIS front, Point of Beginning’s July2010 Issue – Data and the Deepwater Horizon Disaster sparked interest into the inner workings of GIS within a disaster setting. As a result the course was keenly recommended as a continuing education credited session for the conference by Jennifer Mauer, NYSAPLS Director.
