For over a decade, one of the most requested features from members of the community is a way to hover over a member for a quick snapshot of their profile (like Facebook and Twitter) before having to click over to someone's profile.  Not only does it save time, but it also helps you connect with only those other members who share your interests in surveying, geography or experience.

One of the ways that we are trying to help surveying companies convey these wait times to the public is to provide a search engine optimized surveying company directory where they can create a surveying company listing which can be edited on the fly without having to edit your website or calling your webmaster.  Simply make a post here and in the post body, tell the public about your current normal wait.  When things change, simply edit your listing which you control.   There is no charge to be added to this directory...it was built to for you to use and its incredibly simple to use.

Our community has always had many moving parts, which extend beyond the community itself.   We help surveyors find jobs in surveying, source equipment for the field and we help our trusted vendors find customers who need their products and services.   Anything which can help a surveyor find what they need while informing the public of a land surveyor's importance is something we attempt to build.   In other words, we've been hard at work putting a fresh face on everything for the New Year.   With that said, our Surveying Jobs Board and the Equipment Hunter websites have been redesigned.  In addition, we have a new Smarketplace Aggregator website to add to the Virtual Mall mix.  Here are a few things we have improved and we are always open to suggestions for what to build next.
