The engineer-surveyor faces critical problems in urban, coastal zone, pipeline, subsidence and other types of survey operations. Radical changes in instrumentation and techniques have altered the traditional role of the engineer. He must continuously study, monitor and analyze new developments for possible use in solving current survey problems. The Engineering Surveying Committee, now revising a general manual on Engineering Surveying and a manual on Highway and Bridge Surveys, must prepare to publish additional manuals to replace publications rendered obsolete by the recent technological changes in survey practice.
