Basically, the surveyors have been dealing with the same tasks for centuries. However, even if the core areas of cadastral surveying and land management are still the same, the paradigms and tools to be used must constantly be adapted to technological development as well as to the ever changing societal and administrative conditions.

The issues become even more acute when looking at the challenges facing the surveying profession.
