Survey Legend

Did you know that you can email your surveying photos to the network from your mobile phone?  You can! Here is a cool trick for how to do this, from the field or office.

Go to this page while logged in to Land Surveyors United and you'll see something like this:

Email surveying photos from field

Step One: Copy that email address which is generated just for you and head over to your email account. Add surveying related photo as an attachment to a new email. Send one photo or video per email. The subject of the email becomes the title of the photo or video, and the body becomes the description.

Tip:After sending an email to that address you will not need to remember it anymore as it should be saved in your contacts.

Step Two: Next time you are in the field, take a photo on the jobsite and email the photo to the network. Be sure to give them good titles and descriptions.

Step Three: The Next time you are on Land Surveyors United go back to your photos and add tags and locations to make your photos useful to other surveyors on the network..

Disclaimer:  Any photos uploaded without proper titles and descriptions are subject to deletion from network.  Please Do not abuse this feature as it can get you suspended from community.

Bonus Tip: If you'd like to attach a map or lat-long to your image, add this app to your phone called GeoMessages and send it using that app. You can also use the app to send location logs to your own email or otherwise to let them know where you are surveying. And in case you aren't aware, you can also import your surveying photos to the network from Flickr.

How to use Forums
Our forums on Land Surveyors United are here to be used as much for finding help with problems in the field as the are for you to express your opinions on anything that has to do with land surveying in general. Feel free to share anything that is on your mind, as long as it isn't meant to damage another member's reputation. Please keep it clean and help insure that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of being part of a community that grows together.


We are committed to allowing freedom of expression for all of our members, and that includes maintaining a safe space for people with opposing views to express themselves. We get posts from all over the country and even the globe, so needless to say, people come with different viewpoints on lad surveying practices and processes. We see this diversity and variety as a real strength-- dialogue and debate are an integral part of the educational process, as well as an important tool in exploring different sides of complex issues.

All Community Hubs inside the community have their own forum for asking specific questions to other surveyors, by location, equipment type, etc.
