GIS, Remote Sensing, Mapping and Photogrammetry

A growing number of scientific and technical disciplines depend on GIS, remote sensing, photogrammetry, and the mapping sciences for reliable measurements and information.  The purpose of the American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) Certification Program is the establishment and maintenance of high standards of ethical conduct and professional practice among photogrammeterists and mapping scientists.

Anyone who has been certified by the ASPRS is certified for life unless there is cause to remove the certification.   The Society has a Recertification Program to assure that a certified person has maintained and improved on the skills and knowledge that allowed for certification.  Recertification applicants are required to fill out an application to show the type of activities that they have attended in the mapping sciences.  Each applicant must earn 25 points or CEUs as defined by the Society over a five-year period.  The point criteria are listed on the ASPRS website.

Chapters interested in hosting training should review the CEU recertification requirements and model training opportunities to match those requirements.
