Meeting the 21st Century Surveying-Geomatics Education Needs of GDOT and Georgia

The objective of this study is to provide a viable solution to the lack of Surveying-Geomatics (S-G) education availability for place-bound students, traditional residential students and the associated lack of availability of new employees and existing Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) personnel that are properly educated in S-G for the 21st Century. This study will focus on the current challenges to GDOT, Georgia state agencies, the private sector & the Georgia S-G education institutions and the lack of adequate resources & funding.
