The meritorious Institute for Employment Research and Labor of the Federal Employment Agency in Dortmund uses its job futurometer to calculate how much of a job could be lost through digitization (https://job-futuromat.iab.de). For the surveying engineer they spontaneously come to 55%.

After the first shock, the mind sets in and becomes suspicious. Never before has the surveying engineer been technologically more powerful than today, where he can describe his environment much better than ever with new sensors. Geoinformation is the combination of position and additional information and is multiplied by the sensors in their possibilities.

The parliaments and regulators never tire of inventing ever denser rules that affect planning, construction and all land issues. The experience of every colleague from outside Europe is that in Germany every line is filed with a prescription. So, slight doubts about the wisdom of the job-Futuromat are announced.
