Geodetic Annual Programme Workshop Presentations
On 24 March 2011, LINZ held a workshop open to all surveyors who have tendered for a Geodetic Annual Programme contract in the last two years.
The workshop was held to discuss the future of the programme and changes to related specifications, and to explain the processes for tendering and assuring the quality of deliverables. The workshop also provided tenderers with an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback.
Following its introduction at the workshop, comment is also being sought on a proposed revision of the Procedure for Assessing Data Accuracy in geodetic networks, using the Survey Network Adjustment Package (SNAP) software. SNAP is provided free by LINZ and is used for adjusting the coordinates of stations in a survey network to best fit the observed data.
Feedback on the proposed procedure is due by 5pm on 21 April 2011. Feedback can be emailed to Nic Donnelly, Geodetic Surveyor, at email@example.com.
