Point of Beginning (POB) magazine — in partnership with the National Society of Professional Land Surveyors — wants to answer the big question: What state is the best state for a land surveying career?

Working directly with the professional land surveyor associations in each state, we are writing stories about each state association that highlight their membership base and the availability of projects for land surveyors. With this information, coupled with some research on standard of living, salary and benefits, we are creating a state-by-state ranking of the best states for land surveyors. All states will be ranked, but only one state will be ranked No. 1.

Vote for your state now to influence your state’s ranking.
