Each level has its own group forum and a new mission or set of of tasks which must be completed to move to the next level. In order to get credit for the level you must submit evidence of your completion by starting a new discussion inside the forum of the group for that level. Like surveying in real life, you should be able to provide evidence of your completion of each level. You should submit the evidence in form of video or photo and then include them with an explanation of how you accomplished the task inside the forum post in order to get points. The more evidence you submit, the more points you will receive. The more your fellow members learn from your post, the more popular your post will be and thus, the more points you will receive.
Upload your photos or videos to the network and add a rich description to your uploaded evidence. The more thorough and helpful your descriptions are inside the forum post of that level, the more points you will receive for that level. Your points accumulated throughout all ten levels will determine if you are the winner of the final prize, which will be a GPS unit to use on Survey Earth in a Day 2.0.
Each level will have its own forum which you will use to report your completed mission back to the community by starting a new discussion and including as much information, photos and videos as possible. Your submissions will serve as educational materials for student surveyors to learn from so be as detailed as possible when describing how you completed your mission. Each level of Land Surveyors University will eventually have a dedicated map showcasing those who completed the mission.
The means of completing a mission and advancing to a higher level within Land Surveyors University are several and specific. The method of evidencing a completed mission is a free choice for every member.
Completing a mission within a level is half of the task. Providing proof to your fellow surveyors that the task has been completed is what gets you points and thus moves you to the next level.
