Getting Prepared for Survey Earth in a Day 3D

Survey Earth in a Day 3D is a global surveying event, which is open for any professional specializing in the use of survey grade GNSS equipment, and/or the analysis of the resultant data. Our only requirement is that measurements be made with survey grade GNSS equipment at noon on June 21. In order to give us a rough idea of where everyone will be making GNSS observations, first, double click and find the location where you will be gathering GNSS data from @noon for Survey Earth in a Day. In the form that pops up, please tell us the type of location and a short description of what this place is.

NOTE: This is a practice run to help us achieve greater accuracy with your logged point. Everyone participating is encouraged to tell us where you will be roughly using this form. Saturday Morning we will place the form for submitting your point in the comments below this post, so leave a comment below in order to be the first to know when the form is posted by email. Thank you Surveyors!

Where will You Be on June 21 @Noon?

Survey Earth in a Day 3D is a global surveying event, which is open for any professional land surveyor to participate. Our only requirement is that your measurement is conducted with survey grade GNSS equipment at noon on June 21st, from your location. In order to give us a rough idea of where everyone will be participating from, first, double click and find the location where you will be setting up your GNSS @noon for Survey Earth in a Day.
In the form that pops up from the map, please tell us the type of location and a short description of what this place is.

AGENDA FOR JUNE 21
@ NOON: Simply take a GNSS reading at Noon. This can be at your home, office or jobsite. The goal is to have as many points around the world from as many locations as possible.
All data submitted to Survey Earth in a Day should be in RINEX format. If we all use the same format, it will be easier to post-process the data.
LSU will soon begin Live Q&A sessions with video on the SEIAD Google + Community in preparation of the event.
This will all occur at 12:00 Noon in all locations across earth.

Where is the form to send in the RINEX data and when does it have to be sent in by?
Reply by James Barnett on June 20, 2014 at 7:44am
Another question, where is the data sent to? Who uses it to get a better understanding of the earth's surface?
Reply by Jaybird on June 20, 2014 at 4:41pm

Thanks for asking James The form to submit data will be placed here tonight at midnight and should be filled out with data collected at the point @Noon in your location.  When we recieve all the data from around the world it will be georeferenced and processed into a map layer, which will be layered on top of the data from the previous two years.  Depending on how many submissions we have from the same point, we may even be able to see changes in earths surface over the course of 3 years..

Optical/laser plumb with plexiglass

Hi guysThanks to those of you who helped me out with a similar question I asked a while back.When plumbing up through penetrations using laser/optical, do you guys fix the plexiglass on the floor above permanently or do you draw round it or something once positioned correctly in order to replace it in the same position when sighting down on it later on for plumbing up to the next floor?Also does the plexiglass technique work when setting out on floor above before slab has been poured.I have done this a long time ago for a couple of floors. And as I remember we just had 4 penetrations and used the plexiglass glass points as resection control.Thanks guys.See More
