The Florida Association of Cadastral Mappers Announces 2008 Courses

The Florida Association of Cadastral Mappers (FACM) has announced two upcoming courses in 2008.

May 5th - 9th, 2008
FACM Course 04 - "Map Compilation"
Daytona Beach Hilton Oceanfront Resort
Daytona Beach, FL

"This course is designed to enable the student to compile a cadastral map using state plane coordinate information, platted subdivisions, road right-of-way maps, deeds and aerial photography. Time is spent reviewing the compilation process including where and how to research for needed information. Additional class time is given to the state plane coordinate system and aerial photography interpretation. The course is mostly practical work with some lecture and case problems. Students will compile their map during the first four days of class (this is done by hand – not in GIS or CADD). Text material, drafting, and handouts make up the bulk of the course. The test is based on knowledge of the entire compilation process."

August 4th - 8th, 2008
FACM Course 01 - "Mathematics for the Cadastralist"
Rosen Plaza Hotel
Orlando, FL

"This course will instruct the student on area calculations, computation of curves, bearings and distance relationships, computation of area using coordinates, formula manipulation using both algebra and trigonometry, basic principles of right triangles and oblique triangles and the practical application of both. This class will consist of lecture, examples, case problems, and a comprehensive exam."

Registration for FACM Courses is handled by the Florida Department of Revenue Training Section.
