Re-surveying Firms for Levelling after Earthquake

Following a competitive tender process, Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) has appointed Opus, Beca, and CPG to carry out critical re-surveying work in post-quake Canterbury. The three firms will share the significant task of restoring the region\'svertical control network - the system of about 400 survey markers that enable the accurate determination of heights. The work is expected to be completed by June 2011. Government recently gave LINZ an additional NZD850,000 towards this and other earthquake-related surveys in order to discover how the position of the land has changed - information that is critical as the region's infrastructure is re-established."We...

New Name for Geospatial and Surveying Programme

The School of Surveying and Spatial Information Systems at the University of New South Wales will be known as the School of Surveying and Geospatial Engineering (SAGE). The name reflects the two degree programs offered by the School: Bachelor of Engineering (Surveying) and Bachelor of Engineering (GIS). The head of SAGE, Professor Chris Rizos, said it was important that the name of the school aid in attracting school leavers and mature-age students to its programmes. The name now reflects accurately the two degrees and the two professional pathways that are offered by the school. He says that surveying has an... (read more)

The Profession of Surveying: A Changing One?

One noteworthy finding that can be distilled from the recent readers' survey held by 'GIM International' is the changing nature of the surveying role. A surveyor's work is shifting away from ‘boots on the ground’, as increasing automation and the growing influence of robotics require surveyors to increasingly develop their ‘soft skills’ to survive; they are becoming mediators, advisors and consultants rather than ‘just’ operators of technology. To cite one of the respondents: “With the enabling technology from robotics and AI, strong standardisation, certification and quality assurance which leverage geomatics as a technology rather than an independent profession, geomatics might...

How Orthophoto UAS Compete with Traditional Surveying

One of the elements that makes Intergeo particularly dynamic is the so-called Trend and Media Forum. The Forum, based on the exhibition floor, functions as a platform for companies, giving them the opportunity to present their products. It is an excellent spot to get in touch with companies’ latest developments and innovations. The kick-off was made on Wednesday by Marco Möller of MAVinci, Germany (image), who enthusiastically gave a practical showcase on how the MAVinci Sirius UAS compete with traditional surveying methods. The 2011 edition of Intergeo had already provided a clear indication of the increasing role of unmanned aerial... (read more)
