Civil engineers have been routinely using geospatial technologies for decades. Now they should write short case studies explaining exactly why and how they do so. Besides benefiting other engineers with less geospatial experience, this will also help geospatial developers and practitioners better understand their requirements and perspective.
If you are used to writing only for your peers, you may think that you can accurately explain complex engineering challenges only in lengthy technical reports. However, trade journals routinely publish articles aimed at a broader audience that includes project managers, sales representatives, and business executives. I have been writing about satellite navigation, GIS, surveying, and remote sensing for a dozen years and know enough about the subject to ask engineers good questions and then summarize and clarify their answers. As an engineer, you can ask yourself those questions – answer them, too!
