We kick some life into the new year by looking at two issues dear to the hearts of surveyors. Calibration is something all instruments need at some time in their life so we follow how one total station fared on a trip to Switzerland.
Once upon a time understanding basic geodesy was something for the mappers but then along came GPS. In the first of two articles, Jonathan Iliffe helps iron out some of the problems. We also take a look with Gethin Roberts and Matthew Baddley at whether a laser scanner is the right tool for deformation monitoring.
You will also find detailed reports of Trimble's Dimensions and Leica's San Ramon laser scanning conference, while Richard Groom heads for the sky with a report from a conference on Tall Buildings, and he also finds out how the "Free Our Data" enthusiasts fared at the House of Commons. Packed with the latest news and affairs of the industry, in this issue discover how SAR sensors are helping in understanding mining subsidence; consider Amy Roberts' argument that land reassembly is a worldwide need; read about how stereo satellite imagery is aiding the exploration of gold deposits in Iran; and find out why Alan Clark took on the role of the Pied Piper when he worked in Mali!
And, of course, don't miss our regular "Day in the life of. In addition, the editor checks out RICS membership benefits in the absence of our usual Policy Watch column; the issue has a particularly lively Letters' column and, of course, our regular columnists in Undercurrents, Down Undercurrents and Overcurrents are not to be missed. GW shows how digital photogrammetry can be used for measuring a marathon running course as an alternative to using a calibrated bicycle.
Professor Peter Dale reports from an international workshop on land administration in Mongolia. Other articles pose questions but do you agree with their authors' findings? Dr John Martin says that Ireland's new flood risk policy requires survey techniques; Finnian O'Cionnaith argues that community mapping projects can help defend land rights; and Dr Richard Bingley asks - is the sea rising or the land sinking?
Finally, our "Day in the life of. Following this, Professor Van der Molen closes his two-part article on land administration by redefining principles. The issue's strong line-up continues, however, with a warning from Richard Groom on the looming problem of solar flares - is your GNSS receiver ready for a major sunspot cycle?
Other pertinent topics for today's industry, covered in this issue, include international boundaries, global warming and the Atlantis initiative. Plus, read our conference report on Survey Ireland ; Hazel Riley's article on surveying archaeological sites; and Chris Mills asks - are consultants the answer?

Questions that our articles strive to answer! Professor Paul Van der Molen asks if the current land administration system fulfils modern society's needs and Richard Groom considers whether the Balanced Scorecard management tool lives up to Iain Greenway's praise in last issue's interview. Plus, Chris Mills argues that outside in the real world is where instruments should be calibrated - but how do four serviced instruments fare under his scrutiny? This issue also presents the first in the "A day in the life of. Finally, read articles on scanning Blackfriars bridge; Surrey Satellites' cost-effective space vehicles; reports on leading GNSS networks; and the highlights of World of Geomatics.
