Richard Carter Prize (Not Awarded in 2017)

The Richard Carter Prize is presented to a geospatial engineering surveyor who is judged to have made an outstanding contribution to the civil engineering surveying industry, either individually or through team leadership.

This biennial award is designed to encourage applicants from all backgrounds and is not restricted solely to members of ICES.

Eligibility

The prize is open to any person employed in any of the following specialisms:

  • Land and engineering surveying (the measurement, definition and portrayal, either digitally or graphically in the form of maps or plans, of the physical features of, and the structures on the earth’s surface. The ability to understand engineering design information and from this, provide dimensional control for all stages of construction work).
  • Engineering surveying (the measurement, definition and portrayal, either digitally or graphically in the form of maps or plans, of the physical features of, and the structures on the Earth’s surface. The ability to understand engineering design information and from this, provide dimensional control for all stages of construction work).
  • Hydrographic surveying (measuring and mapping all parts of the earth’s surface that are covered by water).
  • Photogrammetry and remote sensing (producing an area plan from photographic images and using electromagnetic energy to obtain information about objects without touching them).
  • Geographic information systems – GIS (collecting and presenting geographical information).
  • Buried services surveying (the measurement, definition and portrayal, either digitally or graphically in the form of maps, plans or reports, of the characteristics of buried services. The ability to interpret, collate and manage data generated from the propagation of electromagnetic radiation and from visual inspection, and from this provide comprehensive and reliable information to end users).
