Cellphone GPS is only accurate to +/- 30 Meters. Survey grade GPS can be accurate to close to a centimeter or more. Therefore, only a professional land surveyor can improve the accuracy of web-based maps. Imagine how much land surveyors could change the state of web-mapping when we, as a community simultaneously measure the entire planet on the longest day of the year from thousands of locations around earth. We can show the public how truly important land surveyors are to society. Get Involved! It will only take 5-10 minutes of your time on June 21st at noon. Take a measurement at a known point, send in your RINEX data and let's redraw the world, together!
