Over 85% of UK surveyors said they have problems recruiting due to a lack of qualified applicants (RICS, 2015). In fact, “the skills shortage has now overtaken planning and regulation as the second biggest problem facing the industry” (Telegraph 2017). In the USA, POB Magazine reported a shortage of surveyors, full stop! This is a global problem. The FIG and the NSPS both launched young surveyors networks to support surveyors aged up to 35 – however there’s a more basic challenge to be addressed: to generate interest in surveying as a career while kids are still in school!
#GetKidsintoSurvey plan to tackle this head on with a clear mission – to educate and excite the next generation of surveyors through fun and educational content, material and media. With the help of Brand Sponsors and Ambassadors around the world, the community can make the bigger difference and succeed in this mission together.

Murphy Surveys is now the official distributor, throughout Ireland and the UK, for Euclideon’s Geoverse software. Geoverse Massive Data Manager is a revolutionary new geospatial software offering that slashes the hardware costs behind storing, displaying, and interacting with the complex data sets generated by 3D laser scanning and photogrammetry. The popularity of 3D data is growing thanks to the falling costs of the technology required to scan in objects and areas. However, the falling costs of scanning hardware are contrasted with the rising storage and computational costs of the data that is being generated.
Intermap was the first company to collect, aggregate, and commercialise geospatial data from around the world. We are an official value-added reseller of digital elevation data from Intermap’s NEXTMap and World 30 databases to support GIS, planning and infrastructure design applications
