BOSSI UPDATE 7/11/2012
Bruce Douglas (GITA ANZ BOSSI representative) attended a NextGDatum workshop at LPI (whom are on BOSSI) in Bathurst, 23-24 Oct. 2012. The objective of this workshop was:
- To provide key NSW stake holders with an awareness of the proposal for a next generation datum in Australia, consider the broad costs and benefits at both scientific and practical levels.
- To receive initial feedback from stakeholders and develop key NSW principles for ICSM to make informed decisions on the proposal.
While this was focused on NSW, it has national relevance – e.g. Geoscience Australia was present as well as CRCSI and representatives from ACT. The outcome from the NSW process will be used as a feed into similar processes in Queensland, Victoria etc.
The agenda as well as a brief summary is linked here for more details.
Bruce Douglas highlighted the needs of utilities during the summary time at the end of the first day.
