Do Surveying – GIS Workflows Really Exist?

Many people talk about the relationship of geographic information systems (GIS) to surveying. To a distant observer, it sounds as if they are connected, seamless and supporting work flows beyond singular operations alone. Are surveying equipment manufacturers creating work flows outside of computer-aided design (CAD) that truly integrate GIS?  Are GIS users working with surveying

Is the Gap Between Surveying and GIS Contributing to Lower Precision Farming Uptake?

Many people have talked about a gap between surveying technology and geographic information system (GIS) technology over the years. Recent reports of precision farming uptake indicate lower than expected results – all at a time when commodity prices are high and food production is high on the agenda. What are the reasons for these lower uptake

How Do Geo-Technologies and Spatial Data Connect with Urban Planning?

Urban planning is inherently spatial. It involves both location and time – as well as policy. Geo-technologies for planning-design, data creation, data management, analysis and visualisation are all used to support the dynamic, fluid and ever-changing nature of urban areas. And, they often tend to arise within integrated circumstances. These technologies and geodata allow urban

Old Data – New Data: When To Collect Geospatial Data?

Does old geospatial data have value? Is new geodata better? Project needs change and the spatially related questions being asked may be different, requiring new data. When is the best time to collect spatial data and what are some of the considerations involved? Does one approach over another have particular advantages when comes to planning

Where Did All the Talk About Spatial Data Quality Go?

About three years ago spatial data quality was the topic of the day. Everyone seemed to be talking about it. It was important, and seemed to be gathering momentum for a thrust into the direction of improved spatial data quality factors, how to assess them and go on. Suddenly it seems as if that period

Are Surveyors, Designers, Educators and Other Geospatial Users on the Verge of a New 3D glass-free Era?

Three-dimensional viewing is advancing with the development of glass-free, 3D visualization. Mobile phones and televisions are now equipped with the technology and it won’t be long until we see 3D in mainstream geospatial applications.  This innovation will expand across many disciplines including surveying, GIS, CAD and visualisation applications. In doing so, the nature of how
