Description

The Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute is proud to present a pre-conference half day seminar explaining…

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DATUMS AND WERE AFRAID TO ASK!

This seminar introduces the Geocentric Datum of Australia 2020 (GDA2020), which is being implemented in Australia to bring the reference system that underpins all spatial data into closer alignment with global positioning systems.

Through continental drift, Australia moves at a rate of 7cm per year in a north easterly direction. This means that our current static geodetic datum, the Geocentric Datum of Australia 1994 (GDA94) represents the location of Australia in 1994 and the shift over those years to 2020 will amount to ~1.8m.

New technology on the horizon will deliver accurate (3cm) real-time positioning mobile devices within the next 5-10 years and it is essential that the Australian datum is ready to support this new wave of users who have little understanding of datums, reference frames and coordinates.

Target Audience: Local Government and State Government Data Managers, and Surveyors wanting to learn more about GDA2020 and the dynamic datum.

What you will learn:

  • What is the Geocentric Datum of Australia – GDA2020?
  • How it will impact geospatial business systems.
  • However will the future dynamic datum be managed?
  • ISCM tools for GDA2020 implementation.
  • How agencies are preparing for the change and what you need to do now.
  • Why ignoring the change is a risks to future business.
  • Contact persons for more information.

Places are limited for this workshop – please register ASAP.
