Geospatial Community of Practice

Geospatial engineering is all about multi-dimensional mapping and organisation. It's applied in many sectors, and is a particularly important area for asset managers such as local authorities.

The COP provides a network of technical experts who are committed to supporting and developing knowledge and activity in relation to geospatial engineering, and supports ICE’s Data & Digital knowledge programme

The COP is a shared initiative between ICE and ICES and coordinated by a leadership group who works with ICE staff to deliver a wealth of engineering knowledge. This includes:

  • Supporting the Institution’s professional development activity and projects
  • Supporting research, events, networking for engineers in the sector
  • Influencing ICE's policy statements in areas such as buildings, tunnels, bridges and other structural infrastructure

Data & Digital Community Advisory Board

Our Communities of Practice are provided with guidance and direction from Community Advisory Boards, who have been tasked by ICE Council with driving the development of the Institution’s Data & Digital knowledge programme and insights activity in alignment with key elements of the Institution’s strategic plan.

The Data & Digital Community Advisory Board is spearheaded jointly by Mark Enzer, Head of the National Digital Twin Programme at the Centre for Digital Built Britain, and Rikesh Shah, Head of Commercial Innovation, Transport for London.

Join the Community

The ICE/ICES needs your help to build and develop its expert technical and practical knowledge. As an expert member of the community, you will be able to share knowledge, thoughts and experiences with like-minded professionals and collaborate with others to help achieve the community’s vision.

COP members do not have to be ICE members, but they must have appropriate knowledge skills and expertise in alignment with the vision of the relevant community.

Communication between the COP shall be facilitated through a dedicated Microsoft Teams group, providing the opportunity to communicate with ICE and professionals with a shared interest in the COP’s objectives.

If you are committed to supporting the development of knowledge, standards, insights, policy and guidance for this area, then we want to hear from you.

How to join

If you are an engineer or infrastructure professional working in the design/construction of buildings and structures, and interested in joining the Community of Practice to support the development of ICE knowledge and policy, please contact [email protected].
