127th NZIS Conference

Date: 15 - 16 October 2015

Venue: James Cook Hotel Grand Chancellor, Wellington 

Adapt, Innovate, Integrate

 This year’s theme is about adapting, innovating and integrating.

As surveying and spatial professionals we need to be flexible and adaptable to be successful as our environment changes.  Change happens with natural disasters such as earthquakes and climate change causing sea level rise. In the business environment we deal constantly with the introduction of new technologies. The conference will explore how surveying and spatial communities are adapting to the changes that are happening now.

From change comes the opportunity to innovate in our projects and in problem solving. We see this particularly in the Canterbury rebuild . This year we explore and showcase the innovation happening across our industry – we see the start of a 3D Cadastre happening and discover new uses of location information in previously unexplored ways.

Successful innovation leads to integration and how  surveying and spatial technologies are being integrated into a variety of systems in sophisticated ways. Partnerships are becoming increasingly important to maximize the opportunities that new developments provide.  NZIS is taking the lead in providing a conference platform for both the surveying and spatial professions to showcase their work and new developments in one conference venue.
