Final year Surveying and Geospatial Science students at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) presented the results of their hard work this year at their annual project conference.
Thirty-two students filled out a packed two day conference program attended by eighty of their peers and USQ staff. The students travelled to the USQ Toowoomba campus from all Australian States and Territories as well as from some South East Asian countries.
The presented research covered a large number of emerging surveying and geospatial science technologies with topics as diverse as efficient wild dog baiting, the accuracy and precision of drones in topographic surveying and the accessibility limitations of public transport networks.
When asked about his project final year student Jordan Biviano said,
“Although it was a lot of work it was exciting to apply those things I have learnt through my degree to a real life problem and to generate a solution that can be used by practising surveyors.
