Description: At its June 13, 2014 Board of Directors meeting, PSLS adopted the Statement on Mapping and Positioning Services. This position statement attempts to define the stance of PSLS when it comes to unlicensed practitioners offering and performing positioning and mapping services in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. This position statement was widely circulated within the GIS community in Pennsylvania and a panel session was held at the Northwest Pennsylvania GIS Conference on October 16th to discuss it. The PSLS Geospatial Committee believes the statement and the panel session are stepping stones leading the surveying and geospatial communities to common ground where we can work together for the benefit of everyone utilizing geospatial data and technologies in Pennsylvania.
This webinar will review the PSLS Statement on Mapping and Positioning Services and discuss the reaction to it based on the opinions expressed during the panel session at the Northwest Pennsylvania GIS Conference. Participants will have the opportunity to express their opinions as well
