This year’s theme was, “Knowledge and action for planet Earth.” CheeHai Teo, president of the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG) presented a keynote on “The role of the surveyor – an international view.” Born in Malaysia, he is a chartered surveyor who studied in Australia, gaining a masters degree at the private Malaysia University of Science and Technology. He has held numerous high-ranking posts including General Secretary for the ASEAN Federation for Land Surveying and Geomatics (ASEAN FLAG), President of the Royal Institution of Surveyors Malaysia (RISM) and Chair of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Malaysia and has worked in various offices of the Association of Authorised Land Surveyors Malaysia (AALSM). During his talk, Teo stressed that, “We need to turn data into information and information into knowledge.” With an emphasis on a strong national foundation for quality data at the national level.

Data quality was also a topic covered by Trimble CEO Steven W. Berglund, in his keynote titled, “Technology as Stimulus to an Expanding Universe for Geospatial Information. In his talk, Berglund stated that, “We need to apply different standards to our data, where data has to be perfect in the building industry in particular.”
