Indent Triangle 20x20-Max-Quality (2) DETECTION TRAINING COURSES

Extend your knowledge with Utility Detection Training Courses designed to take a deep dive into the practical applications of these technologies.


The LINZ Utility Location standard provides a new framework for recording the location of utility assets. Instead of defining the position in terms of the property boundaries, they are defined in terms of the geodetic control network. This is the same network used to define the position of property boundaries. Virtually all modern spatial data, including aerial imagery, uses this framework – which ensures it can be accurately integrated and spatially overlaid. Effectively the framework, and this standard, provide the glue that enables disparate spatial datasets to be joined together.

What you'll learn:

Using and understanding the standard

How to integrate the standard into your location capture workflows

What is TM 2000

What  is vertical datum 16

How to find Survey Marks & to get TM2000 coordinates

How to ensure the data is collected to the required accuracy standards

Using and understanding the limits of positioning technology (This includes GPS/GNSS & Total stations)

Office based training

No Survey Equipment needed

Please bring calculator

Duration: 1 Day


$1,500 per person
