Murphy Surveys to present at GeoBusiness 22-23 May, London

Digital transformation is opening the doors of the 4th industrial revolution according to the organisers of the largest geospatial event in the UK, GeoBusiness. Now in its 5th year the conference and exhibition is designed for everyone involved in the capture, analysis and delivery of geospatial data. The team at Murphy Surveys UK will be out in force on stand G5 and will host 2 seminar sessions and a workshop as part of the event programme.

“The world around us is constantly changing, from the cities we live in, to the infrastructure that underpins our lives every single day,” comments Colin Murphy, Director Murphy Surveys. “Innovative new technology is pushing the boundaries of what can be developed as we see the concept of smart cities become reality, and new dimensions in 3D data capture are enabling developers to create Artificial Intelligence, autonomous vehicles and photorealistic animation, so there is no doubt that digital transformation is inspiring our thinking and shaping our business.”

“As one of Europe’s most forward thinking geospatial consultancies, we are continually adapting and developing solutions to push the frontiers of digital data capture, to enable clients to make more informed decisions, raise safety standards on site and drive efficiencies throughout the construction lifecycle. We look forward to showcasing our work at the show and catching up with our industry friends and colleagues.”

Representatives from the Murphy Surveys team will take to the stage during the following sessions:

Workshop: Surface deviation maps created from laser scanning for non-technical client personnel

  • Workshop Room E Tues 22 May – 11:00 – 11:30
  • Jonathan Butler, Project Manager

Seminar: Survey to BIM – is it BIM or 3D representation, are we doing it right?

  • Laser Scanning Session Main Auditorium Tuesday 22 May 14:35 – 15:05
  • Enzo Labrosciano, Head of BIM, Murphy Surveys

Where does traditional surveying and laser scanning fit into the BIM process? What are expectations of LOD’s, should there be a standard in Surveys or is it up to the client to ask for what they need? Is it the case that this is client dictated or should Surveyors take responsibility for LOI, and what would that include? Where does open source data and changes in technology, such as through photogrammetry on mobile devices and ‘drones’, leave the survey industry? Or, has the construction industry simply moved on and left surveying behind? We will be reviewing the implications of using of this data, and what role the surveyor plays in this.

Seminar: Automated patch scanning and data integration drive better monitoring solutions

  • Instrumentation and Monitoring Session Theatre 2 Wednesday 23 May 10:30 – 10:50
  • Matthias Gropp, Director, Monitoring, Murphy Surveys

Murphy Surveys Monitoring Department provides sensor equipment and manual monitoring services using examples from actual and past projects we will show our multi-technology approach to monitoring design, where sensor integration allows faster and more accurate data interpretation and increases the overall solution resilience and reliability. While modern software platforms allow results comparison, Murphy Surveys is working to bring the integration to a deeper level where the data are integrated from the computation stage to produce better results including GNSS data trends to improve robotic total station networks where stable points are not available.

Murphy Surveys will be exhibiting at GeoBusiness from 22-23 May on stand G5 at the Business Design Centre, where the team will be on-hand to discuss your survey requirements, from BIM and digital engineering to monitoring, laser scanning, subsurface mapping and much more.
