National Surveyors Week March 15-21, 2020

We're honoring The Land Surveyor

Land surveying is an ancient practice that dates back at least to 1,400 B.C., when the ancient Egyptians used land surveying for the taxation of land plots. Four thousand years ago, Egyptians used measuring ropes, plumb bobs, and other instruments to gauge the dimensions of plots of land. The name for Egyptian surveyors was “harpedonaptae,” which means “rope stretchers” through translation.
