I just wanted to let you all know that I have added 6 new groups (more coming soon) for land surveyors based on geographical location. We now have groups for Africa, Asia, North America, South America, Australia and Europe. Please take a moment to add yourself to the group which matches your profile. This will make translations of documents easier to share, help similar location based surveyors find and connect with one another, etc.
