SURROUND’s mission is to
harness carbon data insights

Limiting global warming to less than 2ºC will require the world to remove 0.96 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide each year. The Australian Government has recently passed the Safeguard Legislation to reduce carbon emissions; and according to the Government will be ‘on track to achieving net zero emissions by 2050’. SURROUND data insights, transform decision making.

Cadastral Standard

The Intergovernmental Committee on Surveying and Mapping (ICSM) and Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) recently selected SURROUND NZ to lead the next phase of development of an Australian/New Zealand 3D Cadastral Survey
Data Model and Exchange (3D CSDM) programme.

The 3D CSDM work programme is creating a standard for adoption across Australia and New Zealand for exchanging digital cadastral survey data between the survey industry and government land administration agencies, aiming to achieve consistency in exchanging digital cadastral survey information between the survey industry and land administration agencies.
