A career as a professional surveyor is a career without boundaries. #PSnoboundaries
Geocachers and Professional Surveyors (P.S.) share a passion for technology and the outdoors. They both use GPS and surrounding clues to locate hidden marks or objects. But there is a difference. Professional surveyors take that passion for technology and the outdoors to a higher level and turn it into a career.
On March 17, 2015, NCEES released 2,500 NCEES Surveyor Trackables to celebrate National Surveyors Week. Professional Surveyors use GPS to establish and locate survey markers to map the world. Visit geocaching.com/mark to learn about locating NGS survey markers.
The #PSnoboundaries Photo Contest ended on June 1, 2015 and one lucky geocacher won a trip for two to the 2015 Geocaching Block Party in Seattle. Please continue the fun and take photos with your NCEES Trackable at a National Geodetic Survey (NGS) marker and share it on Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #PSnoboundaries!
The map below shows the current locations of the NCEES Surveyor Trackables as they travel the world. Their travels are similar to that of professional surveyors who travel the great outdoors, collecting data and measuring just about anything on the land, in the sky, and in the water to map the earth.
When you receive or find an NCEES Surveyor Trackable, log it and place it in a new geocache so it can continue its journey.
Trackables will display on the map after they have been received and activated by Geocachers.
