National President of APPSN, Mr. Thomas Dabirisaid the app would help create greater awareness, as national laws do not allow surveyors to advertise.

“The Web will make accurate information and a database available to the public.

“We’re launching the app because technology is key,” he said.

Dabiri said surveyors would no longer need to carry heavy equipment as most transactions could be settled electronically ahead of field assessments.

He called on the Federal government to relax drone restriction guidelines for surveyors for efficiency in mapping, flood control, pipeline monitoring and other environmental issues affecting the nation.

“I think the strict restriction on drones is too harsh and harsh and we urge the government to see the need to house some of the restrictions imposed by the Surveyors Council of Nigeria (SURCON).

“To import drones now you have to get a letter from the special security adviser, to the presidency, a lot of heavy bureaucracy which is not good.

“Long term, we can’t watch floods, we can’t watch the forest, we can’t watch our ocean, even crime, but if you allow surveyors to access SURCON, which is our regulation, I think it is better,” he said.

M Ibikunle Adaranijopresident of the Lagos branch, APPSN, who was also president of the occasion, said the mobile app would defeat fake surveyors who falsified registration numbers and posed as professionals.

Adaranijo said surveyors’ roles were also being diverted and the app would prevent surveyors from being harmed.

He said that surveying was the bedrock of development but lamented that surveyors are neglected in Nigeria hence the failures seen in various projects as well as several cases of building collapses.

Earlier, during his welcome speech, he said the association’s vision is to always update members on current trends in the field and practice issues, hence the workshop.

M Olugbenga AdamsPublicity Secretary, APPSN, in a slide presentation, explained how the mobile app works on different phones and how it could be used globally for payments and general purposes.

Adams said the app will solve identity theft issues, eliminate quacks and make practicing land surveying in the country easy and smooth for clients and professionals.

“The app will give the best way to get to the surveyor’s office,” he said.
