A very happy New year to you all and welcome to the January issue of the AGS Magazine.
As we face a fresh year, with all of its opportunities and challenges, we look forward to welcoming you to a new programme of AGS activities and publishing. You can find out about the next online and in-person events as you read on. It is gratifying that, after all the extra-curricular efforts by the working groups, committees and our secretariat and events team, that the AGS continues to grow. We welcomed several new member companies and specialists last year and we reached record audiences with our online events globally. We are collaborating with one of our equivalent trade associations in the USA and you will hear more in due course.
As the Government unlocks the next budgets for active travel funding, as well as the infrastructure commitments made in the Autumn Statement, we focus on technological developments in our sector that might be employed at ground investigation and ground engineering stages. In this edition, we get to know more about Phil Child’s role in ground information management in member company Seequent. We learn about issues faced by monitoring instrument suppliers and we feature important updates and clarifications from the world of dynamic sampling.
I hope there is something of interest to everyone in the following pages and I look forward to seeing you all again at our Annual Conference in April.
