Geomatics Indaba 2017

GISSA has received various queries with regards an event to be held at Emperors Palace called “SA GeoTech 2017” in July. We wish to state that this is not run or organised by any of the Institutes and that the Geomatics Indaba will take place in Durban this year. The survey conducted after Geomatics Indaba (GI) 2016 and GI 2015 indicated a strong desire by participants to move the Geomatics Indaba to other cities from time to time. Accordingly, we are working on Geomatics Indaba 2017 to be held at the Durban ICC. An announcement will shortly be made on the dates for the Geomatics Indaba 2017.
