The Surveying and Geospatial Engineering (SAGE) Laboratory is a central space to support SAGE teaching and research. It consists of state-of-the-art instruments and up-to-date software packages for catching up the latest technology development in surveying and geospatial engineering.
- GNSS signal replicators and a CORSnet station.
- Desktop workstation Windows computers, multi-GPU Linux computers and satellite imagery servers.
- Remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) for aerial photogrammetry, remote sensing and lidar.
- Close range photogrammetry devices (e.g. DSLR cameras, iSense3D scanner).
- Close range photogrammetry software e.g. Australis, iWitnessPro and Photomodeler.
- GIS, aerial photogrammetry and remote sensing software e.g. ArcGIS, ERDAS, ENVI, Px4D, Correlator3D.
- Lidar data processing and visualisation software e.g. Quick Terrain Modeler and LAStools
- Surveying and geospatial data processing applications e.g. Leica Infinity, Cyclone, Magnet Office, AutoCAD Civil3D, Fixit4
- SAGE staff have 24/7 card access.
- Student access can be granted from Dr Yincai Zhou or Dr Craig Roberts with academic supervisor's approval and lab induction completion.
- An instrument training is required to operate instruments or equipment in the lab.
- Lab users must follow UNSW & the School’s health and safety guidelines. Please refer to UNSW Health and Safety website http://safety.unsw.edu.au/.
- If you invite visitors into the lab, you are responsible for their conduct and for the security of the lab.
- Report any WHS hazards to Dr Yincai Zhou or your supervisor or the School’s WHS officer in school office.
- Do not remove any instruments, equipment, peripherals or accessories from the lab unless it is authorised.
- If you borrow anything from the lab, please record it in the loan book and leave your mobile number on the book.
- If you leave a computer running for your programs or tasks, please leave your name and mobile phone number on its keyboard.
