Our regular KOREC columnist for GeoConnexionUK, Chris Harris, has hit the nail on the head with his latest column looking at the problem of instrument theft within the survey industry. Coming within days of Survey Solutions Managing Director, James Cooper, widely publicising the recovery of his stolen Trimble S5 instrument in less than 2 hours thanks to L2P technology and the subsequent arrests of those involved, we’ve also just heard that TSA will be devoting the afternoon of its upcoming AGM on Wednesday 18th April in Birmingham, to the problem of stolen equipment with updates and a discussion involving representatives of:
• The Police
• The Insurers
• Open QA forum with a panel of TSA Members.
James Cooper is a vocal member of the TSA and will be sharing his views on the panel. KOREC will also be attending.

Entitled ‘Getting on the Right Road’ our Technical Director Oliver Brooks takes issue with another great myth surrounding digital data capture – mobile spatial imaging can’t increase productivity – and dispells it accordingly.
Our Mobile Spatial Imaging Service using our new Trimble MX8 will also be the focus of a KOREC article appearing in the next issue of GeoInformatics magazine. As soon as it’s published we’ll be using the KOREC blog to bring you the full piece.
This month sees the publication of KOREC’s first column in our new series in Geo:Connexion UK. The column is aimed at dispelling five great data collection myths. First up is ‘Counting the Cost’ by KOREC Mapping Consultant Richard Gauchwin. Richard does the maths on pen and paper v. digital data capture methods.
The article looks at the potential cost and time savings benefits that can be achieved when investing in digital data capture. Richard talks about the real cost of pen and paper data collection and how it’s not as low as some believe. Digital data collection also allows companies to process data quickly rather than spending prolonged amounts of time converting paper field data into useable formats.
