Workforce Development has been recognized as a key factor for the Future of Surveying initiative.
Workforce Development is a broad issue which will not be successful if only one organization or a few people are involved.
Workforce Development is defined as identifying and preparing those who will perpetuate the surveying profession and other geospatial activities. Among the activities essential to the process is identifying educational, training and mentoring opportunities.
