David Hyland, a recent BSc Geomatics graduate, has won the Trimble Dimensions2012 International Student Paper competition. David’s paper was based on his Geomatics Dissertation where he carried out An Assessment of Ocean Tide Loading on Network RTK and Mitigation Methods in Ireland. This world-wide competition is open to all undergraduate and to post-graduate students up to Masters level.
The prize includes a 4-day trip to the Trimble Dimensions 2012 conference in Las Vegas, where David will give a 60 minute presentation on his work, and also Trimble GPS equipment worth $30 000 for the College.

The Department of Spatial Information Sciences provides degree, postgraduate and short training courses in all areas of Geomatics.
The Department has particular expertise in the areas of Land, Mining and Engineering Surveying, Geographic Information Systems, Global Navigation Systems, Remote Sensing, Land Management and Environmental Management. Well equipped undergraduate teaching laboratories, equipment and software are used to teach in these subject areas.
The origin of the Department of Spatial Information Sciences at DIT goes back to 1967, with the commencement of Ireland's first and only four year programme in Geo-Surveying. Since that date, virtually all of Ireland's professional and technical graduates have studied and graduated from DIT.
The history of mapping and surveying in Ireland has a long and proud tradition. The first systematic mapping of the country began with the so-called 'Down Survey' under Sir William Petty, following the Cromwellian wars. Those maps were used until the establishment of the Ordnance Survey in 1824, when the country was mapped at unprecedented levels of detail and accuracy. Graduates of the Department of Spatial Information Sciences at DIT continue that tradition using 21st century technologies to map, measure and manage our landscape and environment.
The Department of Spatial Information Sciences is located on the Bolton Street campus of the Dublin Institute of Technology.
