In this interview, James Derksen, Surveying Associate, Surveyors at Work Cadastral, Kawungan Qld (pictured left with Caroline Morgan and Anthony Schmidt) talks about what he learned and gained from attending SEASC 2019 in Darwin.

James' attendance was made possible as he won a conference prize pack sponsored by The Surveyors' Trust.

James says:

  • This was an amazing opportunity to attend the conference, especially one that had attendees from all over the world. It was interesting to talk to people from other countries and learn how they do things
  • It was great talking to some of the Surveyors General. These were really interesting conversations and I felt my ideologies for the industry aligned, especially on the topic of survey mark preservation 
  • I discovered lots of parallels between the surveying and manufacturing industries
  • There's some great work being done to modernise and make access to cadastral plans much better
  • There are self-guided drones that can take really accurate measurements and volumes than has ever been possible

Thank you to The Surveyors' Trust for the opportunity to attend the SEASC conference.
