Surveying – staying relevant in a changing industry
One of the key messages we’ve been delivering at our Geospatial 2014 roadshow is that we want to help surveyors and geospatial professionals to stay relevant in an industry that’s changing with lightening speed. The advances of cloud computing, enhanced capability of mobile devices, a shift from 2D mapping onto 3D and 4D visualisations, and indoor positioning are changing the surveying and geospatial landscape significantly. In order to stay relevant with a customer base that’s demanding the ability to make better-informed decisions through more real-time, real-world data, we all need to keep up with these rapid changes.
