SPEAKER

The speakers tonight were Charles Adamson and Kevin Zelinsky with Remington and Vernick Engineers.  The topic tonight was the integration of surveying and GIS.

The presentation focused on the need for GIS platforms to be built on top of mapping created with sound surveying practices.  The best GIS database is only as good as the mapping at its base.  Many topics were discussed about the need for surveying in the future of GIS, and how the use of a GIS database will aid surveyors and engineers in their everyday use.

Questions from the membership were asked throughout the lecture.

The presentation was concluded at 9:30pm
