The case-in-chief is Adamson v. Innovative, Missouri Court of Appeals 2009. Utilizing the National Society of Professional Surveyor’s (NSPS) “Surveyor’s Creed and Canons,” this edition focuses on the pledge: “To give the utmost of performance” and “To live and work according to the … highest standards of professional conduct.” Also of particular interest is Canon 1, to “refrain from conduct that is detrimental to the public,” and Canon 3 which states that surveyors “should accept assignments only in one’s area of professional competence and expertise.” In this case, one surveyor ignored 50 years of record evidence that a certain “existing pipe” was the true corner in favor of a new “breakdown” of the section that threw the location of a disputed boundary line out by 17 feet east-west and 35 feet north-south, even though this same surveyor had utilized the “existing pipe” seventeen years earlier to survey the same boundary line. Read the case and decide the ethics for yourself. This is a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 13 pages. Along with a copy of the Creed and Canons, this is a 16-Page document with a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter, the Creed and Canons, and the case-in-chief.
OBJECTIVES: To enhance professional competency and improve practitioner’s knowledge of the law as it relates to the practice of land surveying.
