SSSI is inviting members of the surveying and spatial science community to participate in its Spatial Digital Twin Special Interest Group (SDT-SIG) working groups.

The formation of the SDT-SIG, to be chaired by Wayne Patteson, was announced by SSSI during the Locate21 conference in March.

Six SDT-SIG working groups have been established: Events, Advocacy & Communications, Partnerships, Education & Training, Standards and Capacity.

According to SSSI, the SDT-SIG aims to “educate, leverage and develop capabilities for surveying and spatial professionals in this emerging technology and to provide highly relevant learning and development opportunities for the members of SSSI”.

Specifically, the SDT-SIG’s goals are to:

  • Encourage and promote the advancement of SDT knowledge
  • Establish SSSI as an effective, trusted and well-recognised organisation and hub for surveying and spatial sciences and other digital twin experts in Australia
  • Facilitate inclusive and collaborative partnerships locally, nationally and globally
  • Foster and strengthen information sharing among SDT-SIG member agencies, and with government, community, industry and private sectors; and
  • Enable access to information collected and shared by participants including knowledge of what information exists, and how and where to find it.

If you’re interested in joining one or more of the working groups, you can register your interest via an online form.
