Spatial data underpins many decisions made by governments, private organisations and individuals. Surveyors are the key collectors and custodians of spatial data. As we race towards a society that is increasingly reliant on spatial data, surveyors need to keep ahead in methods to capture and maintain accurate data sets. This presentation will reflect on a surveyor’s role in spatial data management and also explore the future use of 3D laser scanning for title boundary establishment and the potential future role of a Licensed Surveyor. Case studies using a Trimble SX10 scanning total station and Trimble Business Centre will be used to explore the potential use of these technologies for urban title boundary reestablishment within Victoria, Australia. Reflection will also be made on how client and project data needs are shaping how we recruit staff and also how we select and purchase new equipment and software. Spiire Australia Pty Ltd is a mid-sized private consultancy working predominately across Victoria in South Eastern Australia. Spiire have over 25 years’ experience as a leading Australia survey consultancy heavily invested in Trimble survey technologies. Presentation to be made by Mark Sargent a Senior Associate with Spiire with support from Anthony McClaren – Geospatial Consultant with Trimble Distribution partner UPG.
