Land Surveyors United

Land Surveyors United is a professional development network for geospatial professionals. It is a social place for professional land surveyors to crowdsource solutions from the field. With an original mission to build a place for a global alliance among land surveyors to form. in March of 2007, LSU was the first-of-its-kind global social support platform for professional land surveyors and geodesists worldwide, where frictionless geocollaboration is the coin of the realm. The community members range from surveying students to retired professional land surveyors, from geodetic technicians to professors of geosciences, bringing together employees of public and private companies, equipment and software enterprises, universities, employers and contractors of land surveying activities. Land Surveyors United has grown steadily for close to 10 years, unifying what would become the global cultural institution that exists today. Justin and Skip Farrow (1953-2015) had a vision of a better future for the professional land surveyors of the world. Their experience had shown them that the best technical support that any land surveyor can have is the support of another experienced land surveyor. On Land Surveyors United, geomatics, geospatial and surveying professionals have been given the opportunity to build and grow their own global support network which can be accessed from any device. Different by design, compartmentalized into dedicated geosocial support groups themed by location, survey equipment support for unsupported instruments, theme or surveying related topic.
