As an outcome of the launch of the Surveyor's Trust "Australian Surveying & Spatial Workforce - A National Roadmap" we are working on engaging with national industry leaders, and cross industry groups to CALL FOR ACTION around the reports findings; this includes:
1. The development of a National Industry Taskforce to roll out an industry wide GO TO ACTION plan
2. Industry engagement and presentations at conference and association events around the paper, its findings and recommendations.
3. A Brisbane based launch event to be held in July 2022 - more information coming soon
4. A national roadshow to look at how industry can better work towards addressing workforce shortages and career development.
5. Aligning future Trust funding with projects that address the core recommendations from the report
6. Setting up an Aligned Industry round table to open up communication with peripheral industries that face similar challenges
As always, we value your feedback - so feel free to reach out !!
After several months of exhaustive research the
"The Australian Surveying & Spatial Workforce
A National Roadmap"
has been released to industry

The Challenge of Digital Disruption and Data Governance to Intellectual Property Rights & the Surveyors of the Future
This short video captures some of the amazing benefits that She Maps is bringing to STEM in Schools as a result of support from The Surveyors Trust
The Surveyors Trust is partnering with the Surveyors National Congress - Come and see us at the Cocktail Party - wednesday 16th June 2021
"For the first Surveying Residential School of 2021 the University awarded 18 grants to students to help them with their travel and other costs associated with attendance at the School." says Stephen Holden, Director of Development at USQ .. " and we expect that subsequent bursary rounds will be larger as word spreads to more students in need"
"Thank you to the Surveyors Trust and all the surveyors whose work has contributed to this funding for this generous support for our students."
This exciting new project will study the digital disruption of the surveying industry and the subsequent effects on Plan IP & Copyright by addressing the following:
We look forward to sharing regular updates on this research.
"Since the High Court of Australia’s decision of 2008 which determined that surveyors owned the copyright of survey plans, there have been significant advances in surveying technologies and the ubiquitous integration of spatial data. The digital information collected, processed and managed by surveyors is now, more than ever, critical to their business models. The Surveyors’ Intellectual Property and Copyright Research Project will identify future challenges and opportunities for surveyors to maintain and leverage the value of their information in this digital age."
says Professor Kevin McDougall from USQ School of Civil Engineering & Surveying
She Maps Managing Director, Paul Mead, says
" The support from The Surveyors Trust has enabled us to build some amazing support services for primary schools and STEM initiatives for inclusive learning outcomes"
Lighthouse Schools Program
Our Lighthouse Schools Program has been developed under the partnership with The Surveyors' Trust in 2021. This is built on the foundation of resources we have developed over the last four years for teachers to use in schools from Prep to Year 12.The program is designed to build a stronger link between schools,industry, and Universities and is based on the Queensland Government's Gateway to Industry Schools Program. This positions the program to seek further funding from the State Government and other corporates, by aligning it with government initiatives. To date,we have achieved the following milestones for this project:
•We have employed a Senior Teacher at 0.6 FTE, who has extensive geography teaching experience at the High School level, to manage the program. She is based on the Gold Coast.
•We have run an application process to select Lighthouse schools in each of the seven school regions of Queensland. We received 43 initial expressions of interest, 23 nal applications, and have selected 10 schools to participate as Lighthouse Schools. We are also providing support to an additional six schoolsas Pathway Schools.
•The Lighthouse Schools will be provided priority access to face to face PD, 1-1 teacher mentoring, face to face student programs, an individualised school development plan to develop capability in the geography and digital technology curriculum areas, and financial support for regional schools to attend professional development in Cairns or Brisbane. Support will also be provided to build local links with the geospatial industry and universities. Pathway Schools will be provided group support, with some individual support if available.
•The number of schools originally proposed to be supported through the partnership was seven schools.Due to the large amount of interest in the program we have increased this and provided some additional internal resources to support this increased number of schools.
•A two day professional development program is being run in Cairns on 17/18 May, and in Brisbane on 20/21 May for all the Lighthouse Schools, with some places also provided to the Pathway Schools.
A big thanks to The Surveyors Trust for helping make this happen !
