In an effort to identify the most current salary levels and benefit trends for surveying and mapping professionals, this year POB partnered with Clear Seas Research to conduct a comprehensive, quantitative study, which POB will publish on an annual basis.
The results shown in the graphs on the following pages are not surprising. The study shows that the geomatics profession continues to offer competitive wages, benefits and other perks commensurate with tenure, education and licensure.
Personal advances also matter. A majority of study participants reported income increases of 10-29 percent after achieving registration or licensure.

Our study results can only improve with more participation.
