'Meeting the Challenge of Change'.

The Geomatics profession has seen and adapted to many changes over the years that were brought about from advances in technology and how we manage the data. The ever changing nature of the Geomatics profession brings with it new challenges. The Survey Ireland conference aims to examine how as a profession have adapted to these changes and embraced the new technologies that have led to this which have resulted in value being added to the services provided by the Geomatics profession. Going forward there are new challenges that we must prepare for. The conference has been divided up into three themes which aimed to focus in on the changing nature of the profession.

Data Collection & Interoperability

Looking at the way that data is collected, gone from the traditional land surveying methods to remote capture of data using 3D laser scanning, UAV and satellite imagery. Topics include EU Sentinel Project, the OSi GM15 and Geomatics New GN: New measured Surveys of land and Buildings GN.

Data Integration

Adding value to spatial data plays an increasingly important role. This part of the conference will look at where and how spatial data is integrated into BIM and smart cities. Topics include Blue economy from GSI perspective, UAV research project and Hydro Modelling: Flood Risk Assessment and Management (FRAM).

Case Studies

A series of case studies will be presented at this part of the day and will be given by professionals who benefit from the services provided by the Geomatics profession that lead to more informed decisions being taken. This will include case studies from Irish Rail, Trinity College Dublin Business School Redevelopment Laser scan to BIM survey, and the Luas Cross City Project.

Exhibitors:

Also in attendance will be manufacturers and providers of top end survey equipment and services together with the software required to handle process and manage such vast quantities of data. Our exhibitors will briefly showcase some of their products and will be there to answer any questions you may have on the day at the exhibition.
