Why geospatial can provide the answer to Emmanuel Macron’s brave new vision for France and Europe

The election of Emmanuel Macron as President of France certainly gives a huge and welcome boost to post-Brexit stability across the Europe Union. However, it is also clear that his desire to reshape the French economy and align with Germany at the heart of a new European powerhouse will increase the pressure on the UK […]

Why geospatial holds the key to the UK’s post-Brexit industrial revolution

Last week’s decision by Prime Minister Theresa May to call a snap General Election in June, underlines the government’s growing understanding of just how complex and difficult the whole Brexit process is going to be.  It is something that most businesses already know; life outside the European Union is going to be tough and will […]

BIM mandate one year on – no bolt-on optional tool but a fundamental plank in our digitally-led future

One year on from the mandated deadline for all publicly funded construction projects to be procured using Level 2 BIM and the UK finds itself as the global leader in digital engineering.  It is an interesting situation, given that when then-chief construction adviser Paul Morrell persuaded the Coalition government to embrace BIM in 2011, it […]

Take a deep breath and prepare for spatially enabled life beyond your trusty iPhone

I have been doing a bit of pre-Brexit European travel this week. And as I switched my phone into airplane mode for the short flight home, it dawned on me just how umbilically linked I have become to my iPhone.  There are, of course, many practical reasons for my dependence on this convenient and helpful […]

We really are at the end of business as usual. Across every sector of the UK economy – and infrastructure really is no exception – the disruptors are heading our way. Buoyed by Chancellor Philip Hammond’s latest budget £500M commitment to developing new technologies, robotics and communication networks, and driven by the latest draft industrial […]

Talking tech – a geospatial journey from Land Rovers to drones and beyond

My neighbours think I’m mad! The minor rewiring project on my beloved Series III Land Rover expanded recently and meant that, over the last few weeks, rain, shine and often by torchlight, I have been spotted kerbside clutching wires, switches, sockets and soldering iron. I’ve had a few old cars over the years. None have […]

Can we rise to the next generation upskill challenge? GEO Careers aims to do just that.

Chatting to teachers at a recent school parents’ evening reminded me once again of the gulf that still exists between the classroom and the real world of infrastructure and the built environment. While there is without question a growing appreciation of the career opportunities associated with Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects, it is […]

Can geospatial engineers lead the UK’s post-Brexit innovation drive?

Having waded through the Government’s latest Green Paper consultation on “Building Our Industrial Strategy”, tackling low productivity is clearly key to driving growth and boosting living standards across a post-Brexit United Kingdom economy. As such, the ten-pillar plan published this week and trumpeted by Prime Minister Theresa May to “tackle our underlying weaknesses” should make […]

A social housing revolution positioning the geospatial profession firmly in the driving seat

Finding somewhere to live is clearly a massive problem up and down the country, specifically in major cities where, for an increasing number of people, homes are either unaffordable or simply impossible to secure. In post-referendum political terms, May understands how this issue, and its causal links to immigration, has risen dramatically as a voter […]

DIGITAL REVOLUTION: Are you ready?

Well wasn’t I brave last week! Having bought my Virgin train ticket to Birmingham, I finally found the courage to tick the e-ticket box allowing me to travel paper ticketless all the way and back with nothing but an iPhone to clutch. No big deal really. For me anyway. In fact, I can’t believe that […]
