Tony Nettleman – Assistant Professor in Education/Boundary Law at Texas A&M Corpus Christi – Texas, USA
For many in the surveying profession, boundary surveying represents the highest calling; certainly a boundary survey is of prime importance in preserving the bona fide property rights of landowners. But what the public sees is often only the act of measurement and not the infinitely demanding property records research and delicate navigation of applicable boundary law which complements such measurements (and can vary significantly from state to state and jurisdiction to jurisdiction).
While much is said and written about the gee-wizardry of modern surveying and geomatics, the solid foundation in boundary matters is also being taught in surveying programs and at universities. A noteworthy educator in these subjects is Tony Nettleman.
Tony is a land surveying engineer, assistant professor at Texas A&M Corpus Christi, who also teaches continuing education courses for attorneys and land surveyors. In addition, Tony has a private consulting service and serves as an expert witness in boundary, easement, and title disputes. Tony is both a surveyor and attorney; he graduated with honors at New Mexico State University with a BS in land surveying engineering, then an MS in geospatial engineering from Texas A&M Corpus Christi, a PhD in geomatics at the University of Florida, and a Juris Doctor at Florida International University.
