7/13/2006 2Introduction
The main components of the course was
developed by Dr. James Crossfield as part of a
NSF project to develop a land surveying
(geomatics) program for two-year colleges.
The course has been taught twice at Evergreen
Valley College. Santa Rosa Junior College and
other colleges also use part of the curriculum.
It is a 3-unit class with two hours of lecture and
three hours of lab, and is a lower-division class.

GIS and the Land Surveyor
Both deal with spatial data
Land surveyors are the ultimate positional data suppliers
for GIS
GIS originated from automated map making which is part
of a surveyor’s job
GIS is also know as LIS, Landing Information System in
the surveying community, which deals with land records
and associated information
The Real Property Connection
Licensing examinations include GIS
