Expert to LASG: Update obsolete survey mapping

 

Lagos State Government has been urged to commence immediate update of the state’s mapping project to guide development and improve land administration in the state.
A former Surveyor-General of the Federation, Peter Nwilo, made this call at the Lagos State Young Surveyors Network’s workshop in Lagos.
He said the existing mapping has become obsolete and needs to be updated, adding that Lagos has been blazing the trail while others states are just developing.
Nwilo noted that the existing survey mapping in the state was done during the tenure of Babatunde Fashola, hence the need to update it.
Experts have recognised that the full and total coverage of Lagos State with high resolution imagery, survey control monuments, continuous operating reference system (CORS) and enterprise geographic information system (EGIS), had placed the state in the forefront of most mapped cities in Africa.
Nwilo, who is also Head Department of Surveying and Geoinformatics, University of Lagos, said the survey mapping must be sustained with regular updates to ensure that the spatial content of the geospatial data is most current for effective use of development control, planning and engineering design.
He also commended the state government for setting the pace in survey mapping and planning in Nigeria, adding that survey remained the root of any development in the country and must be given deserved attention for development to take proper effect.
Nwilo noted that government had not invested much in surveying profession, adding that there was a lot to be done. He stated that one of the major challenges affecting surveying profession was ignorant, urging professionals to be involved in politics in order to make an impact that would lead to desired development.
The expert said he was impressed with what the Lagos State Young Surveyors Network were doing, urging them to work and read hard, be innovative as well as learn new techniques.
Speaking on “Building the Future of Young Professionals in Surveying and Geospacial Industry,” one of the guest speakers, Olumide Adewebi, told the audience the rudiments of leadership. He said it was the responsibility of leaders and professionals to add value chain.
