Surveying has evolved throughout history from the Egyptian rope pullers at our beginning to modern 3D laser scanning using aerial drones. As our profession continues to change, the terminology of our profession is changing as well. Land Surveying is commonly referred to now as "Geomatics", which is the branch of science that deals with the collection, analysis, and interpretation of data relating to the earth's surface.

He/she is the first on the property to verify its boundaries and acreage; the one to provide official maps/plats utilized to purchase or identify the usable space for any intended purpose, and to create official plats for any division of the land; the one to provide reference points for the construction of streets, utilities, buildings, etc.; the one to confirm that features constructed on the site are located in the correct horizontal and vertical location, and thus ready for use.”
