I have been in the Oil and Gas Exploration Industry for the last 22 years as a surveyor. I have learned hands on many ways to use a GPS and how to apply that to Navigation and Mapping. I've had to do all of my own research and actually learn all the functions of many different GPS's so I can teach it to my fellow workers to strengthen productivity levels and knowledge capabilities within the companies I have worked for. My area of expertise is GPS mapping and surveying.
