The Surveying and Spatial Science Institute is sponsoring the Australian Schools Championships as part of the Australian Championship Carnival, and this sponsorship is likely to extend to future years. SSSI is the national body representing and supporting spatial science and surveying professionals across Australia.

They provide their members with the platform to support and maximise their skills knowledge and experience.

SSSI is running a Geospatial Information Competition that challenges students to identify an issue in their local area and use geospatial information and technologies to address it. For more details see www.geospatialscience.com.au/competition. Can our students use their orienteering background to address a spatial issue?  Geospatial information is the basis of all orienteering maps.

During the carnival a mapping workshopon Friday 5th Oct will discuss the new geospatial area of LIDAR data in orienteering mapping.

SSSI will give a presentation to the state schools teams during the carnival.
