Position Mag announces Locate and Digital Earth ‘Super Issue’

By on 1 March, 2017

The upcoming “Super Issue” of Position magazine covers many of the topics and issues that will be driving the discussion at Australasia’s biggest surveying and spatial conference – April’s Locate17 and Digital Earth Symposium. As the official media partner for the event, this issue of Position will tie in with the many Locate and Digital Earth conference themes, and will be distributed to all attendees over the event’s three days.

In particular, the April/May issue of Position explores how spatial and surveying technologies are simultaneously supporting economies and contributing to wider environmental and community benefit.

Articles that are confirmed to appear in Position’s “Locate and Digital Earth Super Issue” will interest surveyors, spatial scientists, private enterprise and government bodies alike:
