  • GNSS for subsurface asset mapping — Recent innovations in GNSS technology unlocks improvements in accuracy for subsurface utilities.
  • Air traffic that’s helping the planet — From calculating carbon credits to LiDAR mapping, the versatility of aerial mapping applications is expanding at pace.
  • Q&A with Craig Sandy — It’s going to be a busy year for the Surveyor-General of Victoria and his expert team.
  • Woolpert’s global geospatial evolution — Backed by more than 100 years of geospatial innovation, the time has come for Australian company AAM to evolve to a new level.
  • Locate23: From lands to seas to stars — Industry delegates will gather in Adelaide in May for Australia’s leading geospatial event.
  • Taking it to the streets — The Leica Geosystem’s Pegasus TRK vehicle-mounted scanner is making surveying safer and far more cost effective.
  • Women in geospatial — We profile four professionals who have made their mark in the spatial and space fields.
  • Satellites reveal climate-affected coastlines — New mapping tech shows that sandy beaches across the Pacific widen or narrow according to phases in the El-Niño-Southern Oscillation cycle.
  • Satellite data for designing safer roads — Sentinel-1 data is helping Italian authorities monitor ground movement, essential for a country with a very active geology.
  • A growth path for space and spatial — The Space+Spatial Industry Growth Roadmap sets out a vision for a vibrant and robust future for the sectors.
  • Australian technology into orbit — AICRAFT and ACSER have each developed electronics for Earth and space applications.
  • UK subsurface mapping system rolling out — MUDDI aims to straighten out the mass of data on underground infrastructure.
  • Scaling the heights with DEM — NSW’s statewide Digital Elevation Model improves approximate AHD heights on public record.

This issue also contains the latest updates from your new Geospatial Council of Australia (GCA):

  • CEO’s Column — Tony Wheeler outlines why a thriving geospatial sector means a better future for Australia.
  • Meet the Board — Get to know the senior leaders and directors of the GCA.
