Unmanned Aircraft Systems and Land Surveying Regulation​

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), such as drones, have become a tool surveying professionals utilize to increase photo mapping capabilities and improve their ability to measure the surface of the of Earth. Well suited and complementary to traditional surveying technologies, UAS devices have also allowed hobbyists and certified operators to provide surveying services to individuals and organizations unaware that these industries require professional licensure.

To help prevent individuals from engaging in illegal surveying, the Oregon Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying (OSBEELS) has developed educational materials to raise awareness around the land surveying and photogrammetry industries and requirements for professional licensure.
