Özet

The increasing importance of the private sector in the execution of surveying/geomatics engineering services needed for works ranging from cadastre to various engineering activities throughout the world and in Turkey has drawn increased attention. Turkey has taken its position in the world, with more than 2600 private engineering offices and approximately 200 Licensed Surveying Engineering Offices. The surveying private sector is utilized in the execution of almost all surveying activities in our country today, especially in cadastre services. In addition, considering the increase in the number of technical personnel (Geomatics Engineer/Technician) each year, the importance of the sector in terms of employment stands out. Despite the rapid development of the sector in recent years, traditional issues and domestic and foreign developments have had both positive and negative impacts on the sector. It is important to engage in strategic planning, amplifying the weak aspects and making use of the strong aspects of the sector under these impacts. For this purpose, sector representatives were contacted directly through the survey method in this study. SWOT (Strength, Weakness, Opportunities, and Threats) analysis of the sector was conducted with the obtained data. Accordingly, it was determined that the sector consists of micro enterprises known on the local level of the sector.
