Survey Earth in a Day is a FREE event for professional land surveyors and students of #surveying worldwide. Survey Earth in a Day 4DOn the day of the solstice June 21, 2015, geospatial professionals around the world and members of Land Surveyors United (a global support network for land surveyors) will be simultaneously recording survey grade GNSS/GPS data from thousands of points around the globe, in order to promote awareness of and a better public understanding of the surveying profession. Measurements made on this day will serve as comparative data from prior events and to expand upon the database of logged points.
When: 2015-06-21 - 2015-06-22
Survey Earth in a Day Event which occurs in mid June is a time for celebrating the land surveying profession and global surveying culture, worldwide.For those who are new to the community this year, SEIAD is when surveyors around the world simultaneously gather GNSS/GPS data from a known point near their location and submit it to the network, which we then plot on a map. This year, being our 4th year for SEIAD, submitted data will be layered on top of data from previous years. This day accounts as the largest geospatial event in history as it allows surveyors to participate in their own location. As June 21st steadily approaches us again, we are preparing for our 4th and largest Survey Earth in a Day event to date. This year it will be called 4D as we will be layering the data from our previous 3 years into a single map, representing points data gathered from thousands of locations around the planet by professional surveyors. With close to 3 thousand more members than we had even last year, we are hoping that all of you will participate from your location on June 21st.

Why hold Survey Earth in a Day on June 21st?
June 21st is the day of the solstice and the longest day of the year.
Why Gather Points at Noon?
Not only will collecting data at Noon allow most surveyors around the world to have plenty of daylight to gather data, it is also our way of collecting a steady stream of data coming in around the world, as Noon in one location is different from Noon in another location.
