GIS and Surveying - Challenging Boundaries or Professional Cooperation?

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

Is mapping with GIS technology surveying? Is surveying for mapping GIS? A multi-discipline interactive panel will discuss the issues, and opportunities for collaboration, for both GIS Professionals and Professional Surveyors. The panel will engage the audience in a discussion of challenges and mutual benefits. The take-away will be a greater understanding and appreciation of our fellow Surveyors and GIS Professionals and a desire to collaborate for the betterment of geospatial technology practitioners and the public.
