The Northern Territory branch of the Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute is to host an inaugural spatial event next month known as NT Spatial 2011-‘The State of Play’.
The conference, to be held in Darwin from 2 – 4 February, will address the present status and future of the surveying and spatial industry, and the various roles of government and private organisations to spatially enable the Territory.
It will bring together surveyors, spatial scientists, land information professionals, technicians, administrators and mangers to exchange ideas in a three-day symposium with a number of presentations, exhibits and workshops.
The event will include a broad professional, technical, administrative and scientific program with six sittings, each offering one or two parallel sessions.
There will also be special sessions on ‘Spatially Enabling Government’ with presentations from state agencies participating in this initiative.
