The Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI) is giving Queenslanders and visitors the opportunity to reflect on our history, to celebrate our achievements and to involve our youth into the future during celebrations for Queensland's 150th Birthday. The community, its school groups, and visitors, will have local monuments through which to reflect on yesterday's achievers, to become spatially aware and to imagine tomorrow's global technologies.

The spatial sciences profession (put simply, surveyors, map makers and those who work with location information) will be placing over 40 Permanent Survey Marks (PSMs) at significant locations around Queensland during 2009. The marks will accurately depict latitude and longitude and provide the public with a means to check the accuracy of their in-car or hand-held navigation devices.

Queensland's early explorers were often surveyors. Local members of SSSI Queensland will tell the stories of early surveyors and map makers by placing signs adjacent to many of the PSMs and celebrating 150 years of Queensland's history through public events showcasing the past and future of the profession.
