Surveying and Mapping, A.S.

Surveying and Mapping is the study of geospatial measurement and representation Including such disciplines as land surveying, photogrammetry, remote sensing (satellite imaging and laser scanning), geographic information systems (GIS), cartography, global positioning systems (GPS), and some parts of geography and civil engineering. Surveying and Mapping is a discipline which integrates acquisition, modeling, analysis, and management of geo-spatial reference data. Based on the scientific framework of geodesy, it uses terrestrial, marine, airborne, satellite-based sensors, and measurement systems and technologies to acquire spatial and other data. Surveying and Mapping includes investigation, analysis, and application of boundary/property laws and legal principles pertaining to specific public and private properties and is a regulated profession wherein a license to practice land surveying is issued by each state in an effort to protect the public and private interests in property boundaries. This degree is intended to "stack" directly into the BS degree in Surveying and Mapping by replacing the first two years of the BS degree.
