The American Congress on Surveying and Mapping defines surveying as “the science and art of making all essential measurements to determine the relative position of points or physical and cultural details above, on, or beneath the surface of the Earth, and to depict them in a usable form, or to establish the position of points or details.”
The science and art of surveying and mapping go back as far as humans have been building large structures. Since ancient Egyptian times, there has been a clear understanding that detailed surveying is a key component in building structures that last.
