A profession is founded on knowledge, skills, and education. The knowledge, skills, and education required to practice within a profession should be defined in a body of knowledge of that profession. This is the first edition or the first comprehensive attempt to define the surveying body of knowledge. This work was initiated about three years ago, by the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping and the North American Surveying Educators organization. A special body of knowledge committee was established to carry out this task. The committee decided to develop a six part surveying body of knowledge. The first is a general body of knowledge, termed as the macro level body of knowledge which is presented in this paper. The other five specific detailed subset (micro level) bodies of knowledge in the areas of positioning, imagery, geographic information systems, law, and land development. The paper introduces the philosophical and conceptual considerations on which the body of knowledge was founded and provides details on the macro level body of knowledge.
