Big things have small beginnings…

Get Kids into Survey began in 2017 by Elaine Ball Ltd with the creation of the first GKiS poster – a fun resource for the survey community to share with their children in order to help them understand what their parents did at work.

The response from industry members was so overwhelmingly encouraging that, years later, we have a whole range of survey posters and educational resources in production (with thanks to our incredible brand sponsors). Distributing over 100,000 copies globally – a third of which were sent to the United States, with posters mailed to every state! And that’s not all…

“The children of today are the surveyors of tomorrow”

Since its inception, the already highly-acclaimed Get Kids into Survey project has expanded rapidly. It now includes:

An online hub of FREE resources for young surveyors and educators.

 A Brand Ambassador Community Hub providing support and materials for surveyors to do outreach.

A growing family of over 100 companies who have each sponsored one or more of our educational resources.

The GKiS Education Fund, a subscription service that goes towards printing extra posters worldwide.

The GeoSquad Comic – an action-packed, illustrated introduction to the world of survey (a great gift).

“Education is our passport to the future”

As the Get Kids into Survey community expands globally through its network of sponsors and Brand Ambassadors, the project will grow to include full programmes of work for educators, scholarship schemes, and a raft of resources that will inspire the next generation of surveyors. As part of our continuing mission to secure the future of the survey industry.

We will strive to:

  • Provide education on everything Geospatial, including different areas of surveying, equipment, solutions and jobs.
  • Nurture and grow our community and our Brand Ambassadors
  • Work with and educate teachers
  • Partner with survey associations, like-minded individuals and companies around the world
