Survey Earth in a Day 2.0 (2013) will be building upon the foundation of the success of last year's first-of-its-kind Survey Earth event. Once again, on the day of the solstice, June 21, 2013, professional land surveyors around the world and members of Land Surveyors United will be simultaneously recording survey-grade GPS observations from thousands of locations around the globe, in order to both educate the public regarding the importance of professional land surveyors to society and gain a more accurate understanding of the Earth's surface.

On your behalf, Land Surveyors United has set up a system of communication using many of the most utilized sources in social media to help you along the way.
