Review of the Land Surveying Practice’s Specialised Fields
The LSD has defined the different fields of specialisation in Hong Kong’s land surveying practice and adopted them as professional training fields for the APCs. While land surveying is largely driven by the technologymethodology- application cycle, land surveyors must be able to adapt to cycle elements changes. For instance, the invention of the laser scanner has changed the way land surveyors conduct mapping, as well as employ it for newer applications such as indoor mapping and scan-to-BIM operations. As a consequence, such innovative applications may motivate the invention or integration of even newer technologies such as SLAM and AI.
