Leveraging the latest tested and proven tech is important, but SEAM doesn’t employ innovation for the sake of it.

Our team always asks, “Does this solution reduce business risk, improve surveying efficiency and increase data accuracy?”

That’s the benefit of choosing an outcome-driven partner.

Seam Spatial | Technology


We understand that expertise and professionalism are not the same – and not all surveying partners have both.

You expect your surveyor to have technical skills, but ask yourself, “Are they genuine? Do they follow up and are they reliable?”

That’s why we put relationship-building and loyalty first.

Seam Spatial | People


SEAM began as a surveying company in Brisbane in 2010 – with the merger of two small individual companies to form Seam Surveys, with the goal to challenge the status quo. With our founders’ vast experience (specifically in mine surveying), we knew what the industry needed: Fantastic service, extensive site knowledge and a talented team paired with top technology.

Since then, we’ve sustainably grown across the country to service multiple industries. In 2019, SEAM merged with Airmap3D to increase our presence in the UAV surveying space.

Following a rebrand to Seam Spatial in 2023, the company completed another merger with Survey and Drafting Resources (SDR) and LW Surveys Australia (LWSA) later in the year. This has strengthened our cadastral, mining and civil construction capability and expanded our reach in the Hunter Valley, NSW and Queensland.

Our goal is for us to be an extension of our clients’ teams, integrating seamlessly and foreseeing problems before they arise.


Our economy is transitioning towards renewables and developing advanced infrastructure at an incredible rate. The miners, engineers and builders responsible for these complex projects rely on accurate data – and they need it yesterday.

By anticipating what comes next, our surveying and spatial solutions are supporting Australia and New Zealand’s leading companies to build a better future for all of us.

“I used to work for companies who didn’t value their surveyors and clients enough. Surveyors work remotely and need lots of support to provide excellent customer service. They need training and the latest equipment.

When our surveyors feel valued, our clients have a true partner on-site who can deliver what they need. Our ethos is simple. Empower our team to be the best, so they can do their best for our clients.”
