International Land Surveyors Week 2018 (June 17-23) is for Land Surveyors in any country on earth to celebrate the value of professional land surveyors in society.
This is our 4th year celebrating the surveying profession worldwide on this week and it is slowly changing the industry into a more open and connected situation for surveyors all around the world. Just ask yourself a couple of questions. Have you recently noticed all of the surveying magazines and forum websites pushing the idea that they are global and/or international?Have you been following all of the surveying photos and videos submitted from around the planet? No need to wonder why.. just look at what we are doing together here on Land Surveyors United. Stand up and represent your area of the world by introducing yourself in Groups for practically every inch of the earth! What we are building is a comprehensive network for educating those new to surveying about both the similarities and differences shared between surveyors around the world based on locations, which we all know carry different guidelines and rules. Tell us stories about your surveying experiences where you live and enjoy reading the stories of others who live elsewhere, but face similar professional challenges. In the future, the most well rounded surveyors will be those who understand how things are done outside of their local environment. Use your day to promote surveying in your area of the world and just watch things begin to change...
