Join a national, vibrant community of spatial professionals working together to sustain the spatial industry.

Collective investment in knowledge

The Surveyors’ Trust champions the recognition, protection and commercialisation of intellectual property for spatial professionals across Australia.

We pool the royalties from the sale of plans developed by our contributor surveyors and apply these pooled funds to finance projects that advance the expertise of surveyors, recognise the work of surveyors and protect the ongoing sustainability of Australia’s spatial industry and associated intellectual property.
