This year’s spatial excellence awards series has kicked off with the deadlines for regional awards fast approaching.  Now is the time to start reflecting on the proudest achievements and the most impressive projects of the last twelve months.

Each year, the Asia Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards (APSEA) and the SSSI Individual Awards serve to celebrate achievements of the spatial industry and showcase the finest projects and most significant performance of professionals that the spatial industry has to offer (click here for a list of 2015 winners).
