Abstract (englisch):

The professional association ‘German Association of Surveying – Society for Geodesy, Geoinformation and Land Management (DVW)’ has the main objective to promote and to elevate the diverse and complex field of surveying as well as related sciences in general.

This education system is divided into (i) dual education and (ii) higher education. The dual education system combines apprenticeships in a company and vocational education at a vocational school, while higher education is carried out at universities. Both career pathways as well as the individual professional development ‘legal traineeship for geospatial authoritative positions’ were taken into account in the survey.
