Opening Remarks

Session I:
Need for Integrated Survey Systems

  • Question No 1:
    What is the purpose of an integrated survey system?
  • Question No 2:
    What are the need of a multi-purpose land cadastre?
  • Question No 3:
    Graphical vs. numerical information system?

Session II:
Photogrammetric Standards for Integrated Survey Systems

  • Question No 1:
    What are the capabilities of photogrammetry in collecting and updating positional data for integrated surveying and mapping systems?
  • Question No 2:
    What are the theoretical and practical accuracy limits of aerial photogrammetry in mapping and densification of control networks?
  • Question No 3:
    Production of numerical maps: off-line or on-line?

Session III:
Field Survey Standards for Integrated Survey Systems

  • Question No 1:
    What are the accuracy requirements of the integrated survey system?
  • Question No 2:
    What is economically achievable accuracy of ground surveys in the densification of control networks and in detailed mapping?
  • Question No 3:
    What criteria should be used as a basis for accuracy spoecifications?
  • Question No 4:
    How should the technological progress in ground surveys and computing be accounted for in standards and specifications for control surveys and detail mapping?

Session IV:

Session V:
Combination of Photogrammetric and Field Surveys in Integrated Survey Systems

  • Question No 1:
    What is the optimal combination of photogrammetric and ground surveys in the densification of control networks and in detail mapping for integrated systems in rural and urban areas?
  • Question No 2:
    Is there a need for reviewing presently existing surveying standards and specifications in view of the combination of photogrammetric and ground surveys for computer assisted mapping?

Session VI:
Integrated Survey Systems - Research Requirements
Concluding discussion on the questions:

  • (1) - What are the major problems of integrated surveying and mapping systems which should be investigated further?
  • (2) - Is there a need for creating an international study group, and if yes!, how should this group be organized and what should be its activities and its terms of reference?

Foreword

The Workshop on Standards and Specifications for Integrated Surveying and Mapping Systems was held at the University of the German Federal Armed Forces (Hochschule der Bundeswehr) in Munich on June 1st and 2nd, 1977. The Department of Civil Engineering and Surveying at the University, together with the Working Group on Computational Photogrammetry of the German Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing and the Department of Surveying Engineering of the University of New Brunswick (Canada), served as sponsors.

The purpose of the workshop was to provide an informal forum for the review of integrated survey pilot projects under development in several different countries and to consider some of the more pressing issues which must be resolved before such projects may be commissioned for ongoing routine operation. The organizers intended that the workshop deliberations would be conducted in the form of semiformal panel discussions coupled with contributions from the floor. Because of the background and interests of the forty-four delegates from nine countries who participated in the workshop, particular attention was given to the preparation of effective standards and specifications for integrated surveying and mapping systems.

The development of integrated surveying and mapping programs as the positional foundation for land information systems has become a topic of significant importance in recent years. Efforts to date have largely focused on the hard technology associated with systems design: surveying and photogrammetric technology, computer and data management technology, cartographic engineering, etc. Increasing attention, however, is being given to a number of interdisciplinary concerns such as the socio-economic need for modern spatially referenced information systems, the economic-legal-technical criteria to be employed in systems standards and specifications, information management criteria, etc.

It is the hope of the organizers that the workshop may contribute to the formation of an international working group, perhaps under the aegis of FIG Commission V, to examine in detail the various technical, socio-economic and legal problems associated with developing and administering integrated surveying and mapping systems.
