|2018 National Surveyors Week
The message to be spread according to NSPS, which serves as the voice of surveyors nationwide, is that the role of the surveyor has been and remains of vital importance to the development of United States.
"As long as property ownership remains one of the pillars of life in America the role of surveyors will remain vital," said Curt Sumner, Executive Director of NSPS. "To this day, owning land, America's greatest asset remains the American dream. Without the knowledge, abilities and guidance of a professional surveyor to determine boundaries this dream largely disappears."
NSPS has petitioned the White House to proclaim this week National Surveyors Week.
NJSPLS has petitioned Governor Phil Murphy for a State Proclamation.
Sumner noted that there are over 45,000 professional surveyors in the United States. The value of their work remains vital to the future of economic growth of our nation. For example, Hydrographic surveys are important to the use of all our bodies of water; Geodetic surveys determine precise global positioning for such activities as aircraft and missile navigation; Cartographic surveys are used for mapping and charting as well as photogrammetry, the science of using aerial photographs for measurements and map production.
The establishment of the week of March following the third Sunday as National Surveyors Week is designed to be a tribute to all surveyors.
