With so much going on in the world right now regarding COVID-19, it is difficult to celebrate National Surveyors Week in the ways that are so needed.  The public needs education and awareness.  Surveyors need education and training and more importantly, each other.  In the United States, this week is undoubtedly National Surveyors Week, but it sure doesn't seem like it.  Let's see what we can do to turn this around for the better.

 Here are a few things to keep in mind as we try to salvage the remainder of National Surveyors Week and try to remain positive.

1) All 50 States in One Place  All of the USA Chapter Hubs inside Land Surveyors United have a new Surveying Photos section where you can upload and share your best surveying moments and give other surveyors a glimpse of what it is like to be a surveyor in your state.  Your photos inspire new surveyors to get into the profession and will motivate other surveyors in your state to become more active about promoting surveying locally.

2) Virtual Events instead of Cancellations   Any and all events which have been cancelled on the state level due to Corona Virus can easily be attended virtually through your Chapter Hubs.   Events which were originally geared to be informational or involve awards ceremonies can be streamed live to a page on your hub and can be attended by up to 16 other computers and can be virtually attended by an unlimited number of participants.  I tried to work these details out with the NSPS when the outbreak occured but it looks like this sort of thing will have to be worked out on the state level.    So if anyone would like to hold a virtual version of your event and stream it live, simply get in touch with me (Justin) and I will set everything up for you... All you need on your end is a computer with a webcam and I'll do the rest.  Your participants will simply need to go to the URL at a specific time to tune into the stream.   This practice of hosting virtual events is something we should have started a long time ago, as it is just as effective to provide information virtually as it is to be there in person.  Save gas!  Go Live!  I can help!

4136198401?profile=RESIZE_710x3) There's an App for That  Our United States Land Surveyors App is already being used by a lot of surveyors in the US.  Simply visit the app and add the shortcut to your phone or data collector home screen and use the app to start conversations in your local state hub or share photos to the hub from your phone.  Everything is all set up for you.. just share relevant stuff and put your company on the map!

 Below you will find the quick links to all of the US chapter hubs... once inside your hub, simply click the follow button to contribute to the hub and to follow the posts added to your state.

Together, we can innovate ways around the communication barriers we currently face due to Corona Virus. Be sure to stay active by posting to your local chapters and follow us on Twitter as we will be resharing your posts. NationalSurveyorsWeek doesn't have to be a disaster... it could be our best opportunity to come together and push land surveying forward.

    In the Face of COVID-19: Keep Calm and Survey On - xyHt

    Don't worry, this is not yet another article on how to wash your hands, stay home if you're sick, and sneeze into a tissue or your elbow. I'm assuming you're aware of the basics. Instead I focus on ideas for coping with COVID-19 should your geospatial business become impacted.
