Abstract: The Surveying and Mapping Division of ASCE is now, and has been for 45 years, contributing to the fund of knowledge and the professional standing of the surveying and mapping fields. When ASCE adopted the 1959 report of the Division's Task Committee on the Status of Surveying and Mapping it gave formal recognition of the party with other engineers of surveying and mapping practitioners. ASCE's involvement has improved the climate for their practice. Committees of the Division produced manuals on four subjects and are currently preparing manuals on four other subjects. The Division furnished programs for two or more ASCE national meetings each year. It publishes a journal and a newsletter. It works for the surveying and mapping practitioner in educational and professional matters where problems or opportunities occur. There are about 3,500 members of the Surveying and Mapping Division. In the 1970–71 year there were 73 members serving on the Division's 12 committees. New blood is needed to keep the work going. Volunteers for committee work are solicited.
