FIG Definition of "Surveyor"

At its General Assembly in Helsinki, Finland on 11 June 1990, FIG adopted the following definition of the surveyors' activities.

A surveyor is a professional person with the academic qualifications and technical expertise to practice the science of measurement; to assemble and assess land and geographic related information; to use that information for the purpose of planning and implementing the efficient administration of the land, the sea and structures thereon; and to instigate the advancement and development of such practices.

Practice of the surveyor's profession may involve one or more of the following activities which may occur either on, above or below the surface of the land or the sea and may be carried out in association with other professionals.

1. The determination of the size and shape of the earth and the measurement of all data needed to define the size position, shape and contour of any part of the earth's surface.

2. The positioning of objects in space and the positioning and monitoring of physical features, structures and engineering works on, above or below the surface of the earth.

3. The determination of the position of the boundaries of public or private land, including national and international boundaries, and the registration of those lands with the appropriate authorities.

4. The design, establishment and administration of land and geographic information systems and the collection, storage, analysis and management of data within those systems.

5. The study of the natural and social environment, the measurement of land and marine resources and the use of the data in the planning of development in urban, rural and regional areas.

6. The planning, development and redevelopment of property, whether urban or rural and whether land or buildings.

7. The assessment of value and the management of property, whether urban or rural and whether land or buildings.

8. The planning, measurement and management of construction works, including the estimation of costs.

9. The production of plans, maps, files, charts and reports.

In the application of the foregoing activities surveyors take into account the relevant legal, economic, environmental and social aspects affecting each project.

Questionnaire

This research is commissioned and funded by the Comité de Liaison des Géomètres Européens (Council of European Geodetic Surveyors (CLGE)) and the Fédération International des Géomètres (International Federation of Geometers (FIG)). The objective of this Questionnaire is to seek information on which to develop threshold standards of professional competence for the different areas of surveying practised in Europe.

FIG has agreed the following definition of "surveyor". For one separate and recognised profession of "surveyor", please (a) give the title used by that kind of surveyor e.g. land surveyor and (b) tick the appropriate box(es) to indicate what surveying activities are included in each profession.
