    • Ask Yourself The Following Questions:Are you a land surveyor who is passionate about your job?Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a surveyor in another place?Do you think the general public truly understands the role of a professional land surveyor in society?Do you think that your value would increase if they did?Do you believe that we could benefit from learning more about the surface of the earth?Aside from surveyors, is there any other type of professional who can enhance the precision of Google Earth?Is it possible that a global community of surveyors might be able to recalculate earths measurements?If this could occur, wouldnt all of the measurements need to be taken during a single day, simultaneously?If you have access to Survey Grade GPS Equipment and 10 minutes to spare at Noon on June 21st 2013, you cananswer all of these questions and help change the public perspective of land surveyors. Join us as we Survey Earthin a Day, for a second time, as a community. You can participate from your location and it costs you nothing, but itcould quite possibly change the worlds perception of the surveying industry.What | Why | When | Who | How | Where
    • In 2012, on the solstice, geospatial professionals around the world, including many ofLand Surveyors United members participated in the worlds first ever global geospatialevent of its kind- Survey Earth in a Day. For the first time in history, the surface of theEarth was simultaneously measured from thousands of locations around the planet bythe people with boots on the ground that use GPS technology every day. This year wewill continue our project with Survey Earth in a Day 2.0.

As a community, we will measure and submit our data for a new measurement of earthssurface.
    • Survey Earth in a Day 2.0The worlds largest global support network for land surveyors, Land Surveyors United, willonce again be hosting Survey Earth in a Day. This event will continue in 2013 as an annualsocial surveying education experiment, with a mission to not only to learn more about theearths surface but also monitor its changes over time, as a global community.
