Universities have still to get over their inertia to

products have created an awareness among Universities and
technical bodies of the vast possibilities of the subject.
Therefore, suitable courses in photogrammetry must be
introduced, but varied to dovetail with the existing
system of education in each country.
Surveying has always been a major constituent subject
in the Civil Engineering curriculum and to a lesser degree

into the Surveying Syllabus to varying extents, but without
making any noticeable impact. In most developing countries,

and allied products, as also a ready access to
