Working Groups

The SSSI National Land Surveying Commission has identified three key areas of interest that would be valuable to surveyors and for the commission to take a leadership role in.  These three areas are categorised into working groups: 

  • Position and Autonomous Surveying Techniques
  • Cadastral Technologies, Spatial Digital Twins and BIM
  • Professional Education, Mentoring & Competency Assessment Best Practice

The structure of the Land Surveying Commission Working Groups is meant allow greater focus on problem-solving, and close co-operation amongst professionals of similar interest and expertise, and giving volunteers within the groups more flexibility to work around their schedules.
