National Surveyors Week is March 19–25, 2023, and Global Surveyors Day is Tuesday, March 21! These events are perfect opportunities to introduce students to the many career paths open to professional surveyors, and to get involved in your professional community. Every year during this week NGS works with our local, state, and regional partners to highlight how surveying and accurate location science play a critical role in helping people navigate their everyday lives on land, sea, and in the air.
Land surveying has been a core part of the NGS mission since the 1800s. NGS programs support the work of surveyors, and underpin numerous precise positioning, scientific, and engineering applications.
For the first time in 20 years, this year’s International Federation of Surveyors (FIG) Working Week will be meeting in the United States, this time at Orlando, Florida, during the week following Memorial Day. Since 1878, FIG has been representing the interests of the global community of surveyors, geodesists, and other geospatial professionals and has participants from more than 120 countries. The Working Week provides an opportunity for surveyors from around the world to come together to work on common issues of international significance.
2023 is a big year for surveyors in America and around the world! NGS invites all surveyors and those working in location sciences to attend the FIG Working Week, especially on Wednesday, May 31 for a day dedicated to content regarding the Modernization of the National Spatial Reference System. Registration is open now.
Throughout Surveyors Week, the National Ocean Service (NOS), of which NGS is a part, will post related content on its social media accounts.
Follow NOS on Facebook or Twitter for posts on National Surveyors Week, and use the hashtags #SurveyorsWeek and #NationalSurveyorsWeek in your posts.
