Last Wednesday, June 20, 2012, Foster Survey Company participated in the global simultaneous survey grade Global Positioning Systems (GPS) measurement of Earth. This international land surveying event was called Survey Earth in a Day.
On the day of the summer solstice June 20 2012, geospatial professionals around the world and members of Land Surveyors United (a global support network for land surveyors) will be simultaneously recording survey grade GPS data from thousands of points around the globe, in order to gain a more accurate understanding of the earth’s surface.
Foster Survey Company Uses GPS Every Day, Not Just On Survey Earth In a Day
