Science and Technology of Surveying and Mapping
In modern society, surveying and mapping science and technology cannot be underestimated. It has been widely used in many aspects such as economic construction and national defense construction.
For example, in geological exploration, mineral development, water conservancy construction and other projects, it is necessary to measure and map topographic maps to facilitate the smooth development of construction work;
In the urban construction planning, land and resources utilization, environmental protection and other work, it is necessary to carry out land surveying and mapping various maps for planning and management;
Military maps are needed for military use and combat operations, as well as precise geocentric coordinates and Earth's gravity field data to ensure that long-range weapons accurately hit targets.
In fact, the large-scale projects that are being implemented and implemented in China, such as the South-to-North Water Diversion Project, the West-East Gas Pipeline, and the Qinghai-Tibet Railway, all require the active participation of surveying and mapping science and technicians. Their work is decisive for the success or failure of the entire project. effect. It can be seen that the surveying and mapping work has become a "pointer" in economic construction, national defense construction and scientific research.
The career prospects
At present, the information age has arrived. China has already identified corresponding information industry policies and sustainable development policies. The trend of industrialization of surveying and mapping is very obvious. The surveying and mapping major has shifted from intermittent industrial benefits to direct industrial benefits.
Surveying science and technology is a rapidly developing discipline. It combines with modern new technologies and tools to create many emerging fields but also provides more, more challenging, and more promising jobs.
At present, graduates of surveying and mapping science and technology majors can generally have the following employment options:
Engaged in navigation and communication work, marine survey work, management work and scientific research in aerospace, aviation, transportation, public security, national defense and other departments;
Engaged in the measurement and management technique work of precision engineering measurement, deformation monitoring, satellite measurement and control, satellite measurement data processing and urban construction, industrial and mining enterprises, land management and other industries;
Engaged in engineering, design, planning and management in the fields of geodesy, engineering survey, photogrammetry, map mapping and geographic information systems, national defense and military science, and transportation;
Engaged in the design, development, maintenance, management and information processing analysis of information systems.
Research and development of surveying and mapping products and equipment can be carried out in public and private enterprise companies of various ownership systems.
Through the above analysis, it can be seen that the graduates of surveying and mapping science and technology have an extremely wide range of work options, and the work is also relatively good. Graduates are perfectly prepared to work and find the ideal job.
