The concept of a "black box" surveying and mapping system is defined. The term total optimization is introduced to describe the process of applying optimization theory to the control of both "quality" and "efficiency" of the surveying and mapping system. Approaches to this problem are explored, and plans for one practical methodology currently being implemented are presented. Some successful applications of operations research technology to surveying and mapping system problems are discussed. The problem of developing a fully-integrated, simultaneous model for total optimization is defined and considered.
