 A historic opportunity to improve the nation’s surveying framework

On March 19, 2011, MALSCE members in Massachusetts and member of the National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) nationwide held a first-ever simultaneous nationwide Global Positioning System (GPS) survey  to commemorate National Surveyors Week and promote the numerous benefits of GPS.  This effort included volunteer surveyors from all 50 states and numerous US Territories.
