On the day of the solstice June 20, 2017, 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.

Survey Earth in a Day 6 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.

*The official form for submitting data will be live on the day before the event.

Agenda for June 20th at Noon in Your Location

Simply take a GPS reading at Noon. This can be at your home, office or jobsite. The goal is to have as many points around the world from as many locations as possible.

All data submitted to Survey Earth in a Day should be in RINEX format. If we all use the same format, it will be easier to post-process the data.

LSU will soon begin Live Q&A sessions with video on the SEIAD Google + Community in preparation of the event.

This will occur at 12 Noon in all locations across earth.
