Two new special categories have been instituted for the 2022 awards:
The Bruce Thompson Award, celebrating the innovation and dedication of the late Bruce Thompson, previous Executive Director of the NSW Spatial Services and an outstanding leader in the Australian spatial industry. This award will recognise an Australia-based individual from any part of geospatial science (public, private, academic etc) that has demonstrated innovation, enthusiasm and commitment, resulting in a positive impact on the industry.
The Hydrographic Excellence Award, which is open to any Australia- or New Zealand-based hydrography-qualified individual or hydrographic team. For this award, the project or key achievements must have taken place primarily in the 12 months prior to nomination, however in cases where project details cannot be released within one year, applications for earlier projects are allowed. This award aims to recognise hydrographic project and field work that reflect hydrographic excellence, and which deliver hydrographic best practice, either ashore or afloat.
