About Clifford Mugnier
In addition to being a recognized geodesist, a published scientist, and a teacher of Geodesy at Louisiana State University, in Baton Rouge, LA., Mr. Mugnier has been a highly respected forensic expert witness in courts all over the country.  His clients ranged between government owned establishments, and small business owners/indviduals. 

Mr. Mugnier helped many plaintiffs and defense attorneys obtain valuable expert witness reports, and independent expert opinion, saving them millions of dollars, which they could have paid without his expert and decisive analysis.

Mr. Mugnier is a consulting photogrammetrist and geodesist in private practice, and has had experience in in production as well as applied research. While serving in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers he was engaged in research for Lunar and Earth topographic mapping by satellites. He has lectured in geodetic surveying; topographic engineering; map projections and grid systems; International & Louisiana Boundary Law; analytical photogrammetry 
and geodetic astronomy. Mr. Mugnier has designed, supervised, and executed geodetic surveys; he is consulted on a regular basis regarding network design, techniques, adjustment theory, software systems, specifications, and Grid Systems/Datums worldwide.

Photogrammetric experience has been in research and production in stellar and plumb line camera calibration, triangulation instrument design, analytical bundle triangulation, and research and practice in aerial, close range, X-Ray, medical and forensic photogrammetry. He has designed and modified photogrammetric and geodetic instruments including 
a First Order phototheodolite. Mathematical experience has been in error propagation, matrix algebra, statistical analysis, projective geometry, and ellipsoidal conformal mapping.
