"ENGAGING THE CHALLENGES, ENHANCING THE RELEVANCE"

Challenges

NajibRazak, Prime Minister of Malaysia

"Like other raw data, spatial information must be translated into a format that policy makers can understand and use."

Gregory Scott, United Nations

"Policy makers and high level politicians do not understand geospatial data. We must change our language to make these decision makers understand. Talk their language."

"ENGAGING THE CHALLENGES, ENHANCING THE RELEVANCE"

Challenges

Keith Bell, World Bank

"The professions needs to move beyond pure measurement. Let's be professional surveyors, not just users of apps."

Chris Rizos, President International Association of Geodesy

"We are no longer an elite group of precise technology users. Precise positioning will move from a niche market to a mass market."


Engaging the challenges enhancing the relevance relevance

"ENGAGING THE CHALLENGES, ENHANCING THE RELEVANCE"

Relevance

1. Value

By understanding the value the profession brings to projects, clients and the community, the profession can maintain its relevance.

The true value is not is the data we capture but in the analysis of that data, the conclusions we draw from it, the advice we pass on to decisions makers and ultimately the decisions it influences.

2. Language

Those outside the profession do not understand geospatial data. We must change our language and messages to make decision makers understand. Talk their language.

3. Understanding technology

Precise positioning will move from a niche market to a mass market. We therefore need to position ourselves above technology.

Our outcomes can not be driven by technology, but instead we can use technology to support and enhance our analysis, conclusions and advice to decision makers.


Engaging the challenges enhancing the relevance young surveyors

"ENGAGING THE CHALLENGES, ENHANCING THE RELEVANCE"

Young Surveyors

Todays young surveyors will be the leaders of the profession in 20 years time. We need to invest not only in their competency, but in developing their professionalism and business skills.

We need to foster a culture within them of seeking professional development and engaging and broadening their view of the profession to ensure they are adequately prepared to lead the profession through the challenges of the next 20 years.
