About Survey Earth in a Day 8
On the day of the solstice June 21, 2019, 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.
Thursday June 21st @ Noon Worldwide
Measurements made on this day will serve as comparative data from prior events and to expand upon the database of logged points.
Survey Earth in a Day 8 is a terrific opportunity to come together once again as a global surveying community to gather data and increase public awareness of the surveying profession. It also provides a forum for teaching others about the significant contribution Survey Grade GPS is making in their lives and communities each day. Those new to GPS and the surveying profession will have an opportunity to observe local surveyors in action and learn more about the importance of the profession. Survey Earth in a Day is a FREE event for professional land surveyors and students of #surveying worldwide.
SEIAD By the Numbers
Participation Grows Every Year
Instructions for Logging a Point
A Global Day of celebration for the Land Surveying Industry. Land Surveyors simultaneously record thousands of points around earth and submit the data to the community. This happens at Noon everywhere on the planet on the longest day of the year- the solstice. On June 21st @Noon, we will Survey Earth in a Day for the 6th time in history. We layer the data from each year on top of previous years to monitor small changes in the surface of the earth, not measurable from satellites or with cell phone accuracy. Only a professional land surveyor can produce such accuracy. #SEIAD7
