Indiya Geospatial is an indigenous owned survey company operating throughout offices around Australia including Karratha, Port Hedland, Darwin, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and its head office based in Perth.
Indiya is a word derived from the indigenous Nhanda language, the region from which our Managing Director Lawrence Hillary is a descendent of, and translates to the word ‘star’. Geospatial, as described in the Cambridge Dictionary, relates to information that identifies where particular features are on the earth's surface, such as oceans and mountains.
Astronomy and the night sky has played a significant role in the traditions of Aboriginal people for tens of thousands of years, being used amongst other things to predict changing seasons and the availability of resources. Aboriginal people have also turned to the skies for many years to aid in their navigation, using the stars to help guide their travels. Patterns of stars, referred to as star maps, used as a means of teaching navigation outside of one’s own local country showed the waypoints on the route, usually waterholes or turning places on the landscape, and were used in a similar way to navigating via GPS. Hence our name Indiya Geospatial, referring to ‘mapping the earth’.
