A new video from the National Museum of Surveying in Springfield, Ill., provides a glimpse of the museum's most popular displays and activities.The museum boasts NOAA’s popular Science on a Sphere, an interactive multimedia exhibit that uses computers and video projectors to display planetary data on a 6-foot-diameter sphere to create a giant animated globe, as well as a fascinating collection of stories, murals and equipment displays. It has hosted numerous school groups and private events, and it was recently the recipient of the 2011 Springfield Mayor’s Preservation Award for Educational Efforts that Advance the Preservation and Understanding of Our Historic Heritage.

Robert E. Church, the museum's treasurer, hopes to expand the museum's impact through education classes, new exhibits and a computer lab that would show how surveying is fundamental to GIS. Church would like to see every state association give $2,500 each year to support the museum, and he also encourages individual surveyors to get involved. The new video, which includes a cameo appearance by POB columnist and respected educator Milton E. Denny, is part of the museum's outreach efforts.
