Please follow links for my website and blog below and send me your comments.  Me and several other surveyors are trying to get the county to make their digital plats available and work out a way to be able to access them without having to print the larger ones out on paper and scanning them with all the cost of round trips, costs, and time associated with that task when they have the ability to allow us to get them digitally even if we have to take our USB drives down there, pay a fee, and obtain the digital copy of the plats that we use for surveys.  This and many other issues exist that need to be resolved. 


Please invite the city/county planners, engineers, and officials so they will know the value of GIS like resources. 


Many of us surveyors have many old plats that have not been scanned and that we could scan and provide the city/county in trade for access to them and other already scanned plats and important records that we use to survey and recover important mapping data for the private and public use.  Such a waste not being to have this system in place – so simple if we could get the authorities to listen and use resources with us better.


This is a minor challenge with Tulsa & Creek Counties but a major challenge for other counties in OK like Wagoner, Osage, and Pawnee.  Many counties do not have a clue how to digitize and organize their land records and land survey records essential to our use and perpetuation of base data and resources.
