Our Surveyor Wins Worldwide Trimble Award

Before graduating from Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) in November 2012, Murphy Surveys surveyor David Hyland entered his undergraduate thesis into the Trimble Dimensions 2012 Student Paper Competition, and was chosen as the winner. David is the first Irish person to win this worldwide award.

Trimble Dimensions is the premier event of the year for positioning professionals who wish to stay on top of the most current information regarding advanced positioning solutions. The event provides insight into how technology can transform the way Heavy Civil Construction, Building Construction, Survey, Cadastral, GeoSpatial, Mapping, GIS, Transportation, Logistics, Field Service Management, Energy, Infrastructure, Utilities, Natural Resources, and Government professionals work to achieve success.

The prize included full registration to attend the Trimble Dimensions conference in Las Vegas where David will make a presentation on his thesis entitled “An Assessment of Ocean Tide Loading on Network RTK and Mitigation Methods in Ireland”. The prize also included accommodation and a round trip airfare. The approximate value of the prize is $4,500. Trimble will also donate a Trimble R8 GNSS device worth $30,000 to DIT.

Well done David!
