Abstract

The trained labour force in the Geomatics sector includes graduates from institutions providing secondary school, undergraduate, graduate and post graduate education and are developing rapidly. Most of the schools are state schools that contribute human resources to the sector. However, the presence of the private sector in this field has remained very limited. Studies are being conducted by professional non-governmental organizations, leading with the Geomatics and Cadastre Engineers Association and also by other prominent associations and foundations. Moreover, these non-governmental organizations, working in an international context, contribute to the efforts to further institutionalize the professional and organizational structure. A body structured to cover all institutions providing education in the profession and also all civil society representatives hasn't yet been established. The need stands out in particular for a civil society umbrella organization that includes graduates of educational institutions at different professional levels.
