Civil engineering will now be a central component of ESRI’s annual survey and GIS conference. This event, officially renamed the Survey & Engineering GIS Summit, will take place concurrently with the ESRI International User Conference in San Diego, June 16–19, 2007.

According to ESRI, the summit will continue to focus on key topics for surveyors and related industries, including geodetic control, GPS, integrating surveying and GIS technology, land management, implementing GIS, and working with government agencies. However, the new program will be enhanced to include prevalent issues in civil engineering, including GIS integration with site and land development, LIDAR, photogrammetry, engineering and analysis, and construction and as-built surveying.
