The profession of surveying and positioning, and their related technologies and activities, are evolving at a staggering rate. Additionally, the tools and technology associated with positioning, once reserved for scientists and professional surveyors, are now widely available and utilized by many professional and non-professional disciplines. These disciplines can further be broken down into categories referred to as traditional and non-traditional users. This paper will discuss the past, present, and future role of the American Association for Geodetic Surveying (AAGS), highlighting activities which AAGS believes are critical to the future of positioning in the United States and to those using the technology.
