Qld Land Surveying Commission

Queensland has an active Land Surveying Commission Sub-Committee (QLSC), that feeds into both the Queensland Regional Committee and the National Land Surveying Commission Committee.

The Committee meets regularly to discuss key land surveying issues in Queensland and often is asked by government and other bodies to provide opinion and input to proposed changes or challenges.

SSSI has a strong working relationship with the DNRME and they are represented on the QLSC.

Q150 Survey Mark Project

The SSSI Q150 Commemorative Mark Program was a Q150 funded project to establish a network of Permanent Survey Marks throughout Queensland. 

The spatial sciences profession placed over 60 GPS marks at significant locations around Queensland during 2009 to commemorate Queensland's 150th anniversary and 150 years of surveying.

The marks accurately depict latitude and longitude and provide the public with a means to check the accuracy of their in-car, in-boat and hand-held navigation devices.

The project was launched at the Museum of Lands, Mapping and Surveying in Brisbane on 24 June 2009.

Queensland's early explorers were often surveyors. Local members of SSSI Queensland will tell the stories of early surveyors and map makers by placing signs adjacent to many of the GPS Marks and celebrating 150 years of Queensland's history through public events celebrating the past and showcasing the future of the profession.
