Survey Earth in a Day

About Survey Earth in Day

📣WHAT IS IT?

On the day of the solstice June 20, 2017, geospatial professionals around the world and members of Land Surveyors United (a global support network for land surveyors) will be simultaneously recording survey grade GNSS/GPS data from thousands of points around the globe, in order to promote awareness of and a better public understanding of the surveying profession. Measurements made on this day will serve as comparative data from prior events and to expand upon the database of logged points.


📍 Reasons to Participate in #SEIAD6

  • Commemorate International Surveyors Week

  • Gather GPS data worldwide

  • Continue to refine the models of the surface of the Earth. (must -meet specific requirements Marks/GPS Data/Equipment)

  • Promote a demystifed system of understanding the means of measurement using satellite positioning systems.



Survey Earth in a Day 6 is a terrific opportunity to come together once again as a global surveying community to gather data and increase public awareness of the surveying profession. It also provides a forum for teaching others about the significant contribution Survey Grade GPS is making in their lives and communities each day. Those new to GPS and the surveying profession will have an opportunity to observe local surveyors in action and learn more about the importance of the profession.

Survey Earth in a Day is a FREE event for professional land surveyors and students of #surveying worldwide.

Survey Earth in a Day 1.0, 2.0, 3D,4D 5!

Planet earth has never been measured with great precision- in its entirety- from thousands of points, simultaneously, during the course of a single day. On Survey Earth Day, the geospatial professionals of the world will have a chance to change that. On the day of the summer solstice June 20 2012, geospatial professionals around the world and members of Land Surveyors United (a global support network for land surveyors) will be simultaneously recording survey grade GPS data from thousands of points around the globe, in order to gain a more accurate understanding of the earth's surface. The first annual Survey Earth in a Day event will be an ongoing annual social surveying education experiment, with a mission not only to learn more about the earth's surface but also monitor its changes over time, as a global community.Our results will change the knowledge we currently have of the shape of the earth and thus provide new information about our planet's surface for the benefit of all man-kind. Help the surveying industry and the surveyors in your region of the world by representing your area as we re-measure the entire globe in one single day! If you are a geospatial professional with access to survey grade GPS equipment, you should consider helping us set a world's record, right from where you live and work! Only a surveyor can provide the kind of precision that will be needed to truly understand the shape of planet earth. Just imagine how much this can help our industry. Survey Earth in a Day is hosted by Land Surveyors United network. On the day of the solstice June 21 2016, geospatial professionals around the world and members of Land Surveyors United will celebrate Survey Earth in a Day 5 and will once again be simultaneously recording survey grade GPS data from thousands of points around the globe, in order to gain a more accurate understanding of the earth's surface. The first annual Survey Earth in a Day event was successful in establishing many new understandings between geospatial and geomatics professionals and the general public on geospatial issues. With a mission not only to learn more about the earth's surface but also monitor its changes over time, and the changes in public perspective, as a global community, we may be more capable of assessing our future.
