14 Jan For Sale – Oak stamping block/anvil for Aluminum Survey Cap

Oak stamping block/anvil for Aluminum Survey Cap Oak Stamping Blocks info The oak block is designed to accept aluminum survey caps having a nominal stem diameter of 1-1/4” or less and the cap may be inserted from either side of the block.   Caps having a top diameter of 2-1/2” or less may be stamped at any point on the cap and it will be supported.  For caps having a top diameter larger than 2-1/2”, it is recommended the stamping take place only where the cap is supported by the block. The block has a single coat of tung oil finish to help preserve the wood and should last for years.  Paste wax or tung oil applied to each end of the block each spring (at least once a year) will help preserve the block for a longer time.  After time the surface of the block may become splintered from constant impacts, when this happens either replace the block or sand it down to remove the splinters.  The oak splinters will pierce the hand easily if care is not taken. Blocks may be ordered at [email protected], larger size blocks are available and a price will be quoted at the time of the order.  The quoted price of each block purchased will be billed to you and paid directly to MARLS and the funds will go to either the Scholarship Fund or the Aid Fund, your choice.  All blocks will be delivered in February at the MARLS Conference. Rich Jensen, PLS Single block:    $25.00 each 3 or more blocks: $20.00 each...

30 Jul NOTICE: NGS Terminating CORS FTP Service on August 16, 2021

NOTICE: NGS Terminating CORS FTP Service on August 16, 2021 Update from Brian Shaw, NGS Regional Director NGS FTP is going away and this was were many users and vendors went to download CORS data. I also wanted to share the location for the archived datasheet shape files.  Currently we have two versions of the shape files the production and the beta where the beta have significantly more attributes from the text datasheet.   The beta shape files will be moving to production in the upcoming month or two.  Here are the locations for these archives that have also been migrated off the FTP: Production Datasheet shape files https://geodesy.noaa.gov/pub/DS_ARCHIVE/ShapeFiles/ Beta Datasheet shape files. https://geodesy.noaa.gov/pub/DS_ARCHIVE/BETA_PRODUCTS/ https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/USNOAANOS/bulletins/2ea199f FTP (file transfer protocol), which is used by our users for downloading important datasets such as CORS data, is being deprecated globally across NGS. FTP is no longer going to be supported by Chrome and other browsers, and this decision to deprecate FTP will maintain security of our data and services. The impact to most NGS users is expected to be minimal, and datasets currently available on FTP have been transitioned to HTTPS. Decommissioning NOAA CORS Network (NCN) FTP service on August 16, 2021 Be advised that beginning on August 16, 2021 any FTP attempts made to NGS CORS will fail. Please visit the NCN Data & Products page for details and examples: https://geodesy.noaa.gov/CORS/data.shtml All users must begin using these NCN https services: https://noaa-cors-pds.s3.amazonaws.com/index.html (recommended for automation) https://geodesy.noaa.gov/corsdata/ Finally, NGS recognizes some users may have hard-coded links to FTP for harvesting data from the NCN, so changes to software may be required. If you have questions about any vendor-supported software, we recommend you contact your vendor directly. For all other questions, feel free to contact the CORS team at [email protected]
