Integration of geomatics generations in views of integrating technologies and surveyors calls for lifelong learning, which aims for the promotion of productivity and employability, social cohesion and justice, individuals’ achievements, and lifelong learning policy. This paper asserts that the integration and generations should be supported by governments’ lifelong learning policies and education systems under a balanced view of both the welfare model and the market model.
