Surveying is an important discipline in civil engineering that is associated with many facilities, including railways, roads, dams, bridges, and residential areas. Surveying creates the legal boundaries and provides essential engineering support for urban development, large infrastructure projects, the development and operation of mines and the management of the environment and resources.
Geospatial engineering is a broad field that crosses multiple specialties which focus on multiple dimensional mapping and organizing. With new methods and technology such as GPS, satellite imagery, laser scanning, and fast computing to create complex layers of interconnected geographical information provide additional utility and the ability to work effectively within a broad pool of partners and allies.
