  • Public Service Announcement

    As the largest community body of land surveyors anywhere in the world with close to 9000 members, we have a responsibility. We must do all that we can to educate the public regarding our importance to society in order to pave the way for those who come after us. One way to accomplish this would be for each of us to record a short PSA sharing the nature of surveying jobs in the places where we live.

  • Professional Measurements

    As we all know, land surveyors are the only professionals in the world qualified to produce accurate measurements of land. Show the world what you mean when you say "accuracy." How do surveyors fix mistakes made in history.

  • Tricks of the Trade

    The more you survey, the more you learn. The more you learn, the more you survey. What types of tricks have you learned for saving time in the field? Show us how you have mastered the craft!

  • Timeless Art of Measurement

    As the oldest among old PROfessions, a lot has changed, but even more has stayed the same. Show us how you see historical surveying methods weaving themselves through your daily work. If all of your equipment failed, how would you do your job? Show us how important surveying history is to us all and how it is relevant today.

  • Before and After

    If you've been surveying for a while, you have witnessed and participated in a lot of environmental changes happening all around you. Your surroundings become bound to measurements made by you. Show us what you have created for the society you belong to. Show us how surveying influences and is intertwined with civilization. The public should be surprised.

  • Precision Hacks

    This is entirely up to your imagination.

  • Aerial/ Drone Surveying

How does one achieve survey grade measurements with Aerial Drones and UAV surveying?  Show us what you have learned about this newcomer to land surveying industry.

  • Extreme Location

Surveying in Extreme Locations. Show us the excitement, the dangers and the rewards.
