Out now in print

While the December/January is the latest issue of Position available in digital, the latest print issue is the October/November issue- currently available exclusively through print subscription.

A number of other exclusive articles cover the “Dynamics & Datums” focus of the issue, offering expertise on datum adoption as Australia gears up for GDA2020 and ATRF. Issue 87 will be available in digital for Spatial Source subscribers in the coming weeks.
