Poll: 2013 – Surveys in Review

Thank you to the thousands of AUGI members who chimed in on this year’s home page polls and surveys.

To check out the results of each of the individual polls, search the library.

You can also download pdf summaries of past surveys on the archive page: (you must be logged in to download survey results). I apologize for taking so long to update this page, I’ll be adding to it in the coming weeks.

While I do have a schedule of polls to run for the new year, I’d love to hear topic suggestions from our manufacturing, civil and design visualization members and would happily work in some polls for you. What would you like to know about your peers and how they’re working?
