This paper focuses on the need for a modern survey curriculum in our tertiary institutions with strong emphasis on geoinformatics in order to prepare the Nigerian Surveyors for the information technology driven 21st century. To serve as a proper perspective for geoinformatics training, the components and subsystems of a Geospatial Information System are reviewed. The paper also gives the course structure for the new ND, HND,and post-HND programmes in Surveying and Geoinformatics currently being run by the Federal School of Surveying, Oyo.
