Closing Session

Professional Surveyor Magazine "Intersect" columnists Janet Jackson, GISP, and Randy Rambeau, PLS, look at the business issues of surveying and GIS and discuss their intersection, overlap, synergies, and benefits of having both practices in the same company. What are the issues with providing GIS services in a surveying atmosphere, and what are the benefits of providing surveying capabilities in a GIS services organization? This important and entertaining forum will take questions from the audience to help convey that there might not be a gap at all to be bridged but opportunity to be exploited.
