‘Data mining for the future’: APAS2019 to return in April

By on 20 November, 2018

The Association of Public Authority Surveyors will hold its 2019 conference over three days in Pokolbin, in NSW’s Hunter Valley in April 2019.

The organisers say that the theme of ‘Data mining for the future’ will focus the event’s tracks around harnessing the ever-increasing volumes of data being made available.

“Combining these datasets will facilitate a better understanding of the dynamic world we live in, but only if we can appropriately maintain and manage these datasets and their associated metadata,” a spokesperson said.

“This is particularly important in regards to the current datum modernisation efforts — the adoption of GDA2020 and the introduction of the ATRF (Australian Terrestrial Reference Frame).”

Key topics include conforming to the Surveying and Spatial Information Regulation 2017, datum modernisation, and the preservation of survey infrastructure and riparian boundaries. The full program is now available [PDF].

The organisers expect around 250 delegates, with around 50 percent of those from the private sector, based on previous events. Registration will soon be open, and conference will take place from April 1-3, 2019 at the Cypress Lakes Resort, Pokolbin, NSW.
