Working Group for Professional Land Surveying and GIS

The Working Group for Professional Land Surveying and GIS is a special committee of the North Carolina Geographic Information Coordinating Council (GICC) and operates under the authority of the Council. The charter for the Working Group states that they will work with the North Carolina Board of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors (NCBEES) and communicate the results of their work to the broader GIS community.  Specifically, the group is to:

  • define GIS in North Carolina,
  • define the scope of engineering and surveying services in relation to GIS,
  • articulate how GIS is practiced by GIS professionals,
  • review the legislation to clarify the language and if needed, make recommendations on how to enable GIS practices through agencies and Boards that are stakeholders, including potential modifications to legislation and rules governing professional land surveying and GIS.

Information about the previous Surveyors' Model Law Working Group is available in the section for deactivated working groups and committees at the bottom of the page on committees.
