The purchase follows a long-standing relationship between Global Survey and Otago University School of Surveying that goes back decades. Global Survey has historically supported the Survey School, many of our team graduated from there and have maintained their connections with the University. Further work will include support for technical staff in the assistance of development of course materials, contribution to lectures and field practice.

“It was important that new instruments at Survey School be equipped with Leica Captivate software.  Through the exposure that students will now gain to the Leica software and workflows, they will be more marketable, and better able so slot into internships and new careers at the widest range of survey companies.” Bruce Robinson  – Global Survey
