|School of Surveying & Spatial Information Systems|
The School of Surveying & Spatial Information Systems at UNSW is a leading educational institution in Australia for teaching and research in Surveying & Spatial Information Systems. The School offers the entire range of subjects that make up the discipline of Surveying - computer graphics, GIS, photogrammetry, remote sensing, satellite positioning, cadastral and engineering surveying, mapping, geodesy, land management and development.
The School's undergraduate programs involve an integrated approach to the measurement, analysis, storage, management, distribution and application of spatially-referenced data. Spatial data underpins many applications in modern society, and the range of spatial technologies and applications is expanding rapidly. A graduate from the School may choose to enter the profession of surveying or an associated spatial information discipline.
An education in surveying deals with topics such as satellite positioning, geodesy, mapping, survey measurement technologies and computations, as applied to applications such as engineering and cadastral surveying, and land management and development in general. With the selection of the appropriate elective courses, a graduate may choose instead to specialise in Spatial Information Systems (SIS), a fast moving IT area. Topics include computing, databases, geographic information systems, GPS technologies, digital mapping, remote sensing and image analysis. SIS applications include land information and resource management, navigation, and telematics.
