Surveying and Geomatics Engineering: Principles, Technologies, and Applications, MOP 152, is a comprehensive yet general overview to help support education and inform practicing engineers on the important role of the surveying engineer. It provides a much-needed update on the modern practice of surveying and geomatics engineering.
Coordinate systems and transformations,
Least squares adjustments and error propagation,
Modern surveying and remote sensing technology,
Analysis and establishment of control,
Geographic and building information systems,
Construction surveying, and
MOP 152 can be used as a summary and a reference for practicing engineers, surveying and otherwise, to help provide a solid understanding of the state of the surveying and geomatics engineering field.
Chapter 1 Engineering Surveying within ASCE
Surveying engineering may be regarded as a specialty within the broader professional practice of engineering and includes all surveying and mapping activities required to support sound conception, planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation of engineered projects. This chapter introduces the key concepts of surveying engineering that are discussed in subsequent chapters. These include the leading role of ASCE’s Surveying and Geomatics Division in surveying engineering, and more broadly, geomatics, the “mathematics of the earth”; the role of surveying engineers in providing an increasing level of sophisticated mapping, positioning, control, monitoring, and in some cases, navigation information; and the role in the United States of each state’s licensing board in determining, in conjunction with the state legislature, what the definition of surveying entails.
Engineering surveying are those activities involved in the planning and execution of surveys for the development, design, construction, operation and maintenance of civil and other engineered projects. Engineering surveying may be regarded as a specialty within the broader professional practice of engineering and includes all surveying activities required to support the conception, planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation of engineered projects. Engineering surveying excludes the surveying of real property, for the establishment of land boundaries, rights of way, easements, and the dependent or independent surveys or resurveys of the public land survey system. ASCE believes that this definition should be adopted by state engineering licensing boards.” Reference ASCE Policy Statement 333.
