It’s About the Data! GIS, Photogrammetry and Surveying – Understanding the Boundaries of Practice

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The opportunities for utilizing GIS are almost without limit. However, it is important to

know when an authoritative determination of location is required. A licensed surveyor is the only professional that can establish or measure a geographic location that has a legal standing in court. It is important for any individual using or managing a GIS to know where the boundaries for the practice of surveying are and to make sure we respect those boundaries and facilitate the employment of surveyors to improve the accuracy and legality of our GIS data. It is also important for us to understand the role of the certified photogrammetrist as well. Together, GIS, photogrammetry and surveying can make sure that the right data is used in the right way at the right time. 

This panel will hopefully be the beginning of a long discussion between GIS, photogrammetry and surveying professionals to better understand how we can work together to establish a shared understanding of how we can complement and promote each other’s work.
