Our Member Map Goes Members Only

Global Member Map on Land Surveyors UnitedAs many of you have noticed, our Global Member Map is now for members only, allowing you to reach out to members of Land Surveyors United with ease. The old member map just showed location and wasn't much help, but we wanted to protect members from outside contact. Now, if you are a member you can find another member on our new member map and also edit your placemark in anyway you see fit. The next time you are on Surveying.org, look in the right sidebar and click on LSU Member Map option. Updating your status using the Mobile Rover will soon make your profile show up in real time on Surveying.org. In other words, we can all be "surveying" as a community all over the world, every day.
