Endless Surveying Photos
One of the requests we had was the ability to see more photos than the limiting 15 or so photos you see from the network feed. So this version satisfies that in a huge way! You can sit and scroll through land surveying photos all day if you want! Enjoy!
When using the mobile version, there is no possible way that you could not find something to interest you, while surfing from the field. All pages on the mobile version endlessly scroll when you reach the bottom of the page, serving you up more and more topics.

Stay Connected Locally and Survey Globally
Network With Your Local Group Members
We are all part of a dynamic group or society of professionals based on the geographic location of our homes. By searching the new mobile groups, you can join a group forum based on your location and share experiences right from the field. This will give us all a better understanding of what it is like to be a surveyor in your area. Tell us about the challenges you face such as environmental hurdles, wildlife safety, weather conditions, etc. In our pursuit of a more global understanding of how surveyors operate around the world, we can better equip ourselves for the challenges found within the industry through creation of awareness.
Share Important Announcements in Your Area
State Boards, Professional Associations and Societies can all benefit from the ability to keep everyone on the same page by making your most important announcements known by sharing them in the local group forum based on a location. This will also make it simpler to notify everyone of changes in a calendar or having local chapters RSVP for important events.
Fix Your Broken Equipment
Ever had something break in the field? Sure we all have. By searching for the manufacturer of the equipment and asking a question inside the correct group forum,you are effectively targeting your question towards other members who are familiar with that type of equipment. You could, for example, ask if some other surveyor out there might have a user guide for the type of equipment you are using. Now with Mobile Group Forums all of this can be possible without having to pack up and head back to the office.
Troubleshoot Errors and Issues While IN the Field
Errors can destroy a productive day of surveying. Nevertheless, many errors can be resolved quickly by asking a fellow surveyors who have dealt with and over come those errors. Many errors for equipment simply have never been documented and therefore you may never find the solution without asking a fellow experienced surveyor. Use theMobile Group Forums feature as your Get Out of Jail Free Card and contribute solutions to common problems so that other surveyors can benefit from your experience, while on the go!

~We provided an option for you to set the view for a Stories, Forum, Event or Groups page to My Blog Posts, My Events, My Discussions etc. This will mean that signed in members see their own list of items.
~We added the day of the week to the Event listing heading, so that surveyors can see at a glance what day of the week an event is on. If you know of an upcoming event in your area, please add it to the network. Events for now can only be added via the desktop version of Land Surveyors United, but working on the mobile solution.
~For Forums, Surveyor Stories and Photos, we've added a "Show Search and Filter options" checkbox to the management screen that will put a search field and dropdown filter for available views into the mobile page. Groups and Events currently have this, and now you have the option to provide it to members for other page types as well.
