The geospatial career field covers a broad spectrum of industries, job roles, and focus areas. And before you decide which direction you want to take your career, it always a good idea to have a clear picture of your options, and how to prepare and pursue what interests you most. In our ongoing podcast series about geospatial careers and professional development, we talk to Mike Lane, Global Education Manager of Hexagon’s Geospatial division, and Elliott Ferguson, Vice President of Geospatial at Hexagon US Federal, about the many possible career paths in the geospatial industry, including opportunities within the federal government, the intelligence community, and the private sector. Also discussed are the varying skill sets needed to succeed and how to identify the right fit for you.

Harmonised Integration: Technology keys to greater efficiency and productivity
In this episode of HxGN Radio, we explain the progress being made in harmonising hardware and software in the mining industry to automate workflows, optimise haulage and blending, and deliver situational awareness.
Are we there yet? The road to automation and autonomous mining
Recently, mining media have even speculated that the COVID-19 pandemic may actually accelerate autonomous mining. Is the industry ready for this transformational leap or are there other directions to empower a remote workforce?
Noise, distraction, busy traffic and poor visibility will always mean that mining is potentially dangerous but improvements to Hexagon’s collision avoidance system (CAS) continue to minimize those risks.
