by Robert B. Read,

Serial Information: Journal of the Surveying and Mapping Division, 1967, Vol. 93, Issue 2, Pg. 47-54

Document Type: Journal Paper


The survey engineer has been indicted for defaulting his professional status by lacking high technical and ethical standards. This is ostensibly true because he misunderstands his function. The survey engineer, along with most engineers, does not differentiate between technical and professional surveying. He must realize that surveying is intrinsic to planning, design, and execution of civil engineering works, and he must take steps to correct his lack of professional status.
