General Information About Mapping Engineering

Surveying Engineering is a rapidly developing discipline that focuses on location-related information. Location information is used to combine many data. This discipline adapts engineering rules to spatial information by taking advantage of the science of measurement. Surveying engineers design, develop and manage systems for collecting and analyzing spatial information about land, oceans, natural resources and human-made works. Surveying engineering applications include new and traditional science and technology rules. Below are explanations and titles of some of the main areas that Surveying Engineers deal with scientifically.

Geodesy and Geodynamic Studies

Geodesy is a branch of applied mathematics and earth science and is a discipline that deals with earth measurements and representation, including the earth's gravity field. Those involved in geodesy are interested in geodynamic events such as crustal movements, tides, and polar movements. To achieve this, they design global and local control networks based on datum and coordinate systems using space and terrestrial measurements.

  • Determination of gravity changes
  • Determination of Earth orientation parameters
  • Determination of crustal deformations
  • Determination of geoid heights

Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) Applications

Global navigation satellite systems are used for positioning and are managed by different countries. These satellite systems are GPS, GLONASS, COMPASS, Galileo, IRNSS systems. These systems provide results with different accuracy and are mainly used for positioning, but are also produced in products that serve different purposes. These products:

  • Information about the troposphere
  • Earth orientation parameters
  • Determination of satellite orbits
  • Determination of ionosphere total electron density

It can be summarized as follows.

Remote Sensing Applications

Remote Sensing is a branch of science that has many uses, from managing country resources to monitoring atmospheric structures. Usage areas of remote sensing; Urban and Regional Planning, Urban Management and Municipality, Environmental Management, Natural Resource Management, Earth Sciences-Oil and Mineral Exploration, Disaster and Crisis Management, Agriculture and Forestry, Meteorology, Transportation Planning, Tourism, Property-Administrative Management, Statistics, Health Management , Education, Marketing-Banking, Defense, Security and Climate Science.

In addition to the applications given above, Hydrographic Measurements, Navigation Related Studies, Location-Based Services (LBS), Cartography, Digital Map Production, Data Mining, Computer Aided Design (CAD), Graphic Design, and Multimedia Technology, Image Processing, Photogrammetry, Computer Vision. Our profession also carries out studies on (Computer vision), Land Information System, Real Estate Management, Cadastre, Real Estate Law and Project Management.
