The report, commissioned by CRCSI was put together by ACIL Tasman and was published in July, but released in August. The report (2.5 Mb) is titled "Surveying and geospatial workforce modelling: Potential skills gap analysis for Queensland" can be downloaded at the CRCSI Resources page.
Basically, the report notes if nothing is done, there will not be enough skilled practioners to meet expected needs. What sort of shortage?
... a national shortfall of graduate or licensed surveyors of approximately 1,300 in 2025, and a shortfall of geospatial specialists with university degrees of approximately 500 in 2017 and 300 in 2025. In 2025, the Australia-wide shortfall is estimated to be approximately 360 for surveying technicians with diplomas and associate degrees and 250 for surveying technicians with a Certificate I-IV qualification.
