Townsville to host Spatial Technologies conference for students

Students from a number of high schools in Townsville will have the opportunity to attend the #spatialrealworld Townsville conference organised by the Department of Natural Resources and Mines on Thursday held at The Cathedral School.

The event is designed to showcase to students the spatial and surveying industries (spatial sciences) as well as some of the new technology in the field.

Spatial sciences encompass the old fields of mapping and surveying. Today they are two of the most cutting edge fields of industry as they incorporate technologies such as laser scanning, LIDAR, UAVs (drones), 3D mapping and more. These tools help to measure and represent information about the world.
