        We agree with you Shanice.  This is one of the many reasons why we have held Survey Earth in a Day for 5 years now.  Our newest project to get the word out to the public is First Annual Survey Earth Film Festival which we will begin accepting submissions for this week. We look forward to all of your contributions.  Everytime you share something from your surveying life, you are creating one more chance for the public to "get it".

      Have you joined the Jamaica Land Surveyors Group?

      • I am currently not in the island at the moment but as soon as i go back i amd going to joining the LSAJ because it hurts to see that alot of person don´t know we exist or ask questions like ¨is that a real profession?¨, ¨anyone can use a camara¨. 

        We need to make it be known that Surveyors are IMPORTANT!
