Ambassador Spotlight ‘Luciano Torreblanca’

Welcoming Luciano Torreblanca from San Fernando, Chile:

Where did you study? At the Metropolitan Technological University UTEM of Chile

What are the requirements to be a surveyor in your area? Study a minimum of 2 years.

How did you come to topography? For having studied Geography

How long have you been in the industry? I have been working in Topography for 27 years

Are you part of an association or organization that you would like us to mention? My company COMPGEO

Why do you want to be a GKiS brand ambassador? Because the industry needs to strengthen geotechnological knowledge by training future surveyors from a young age

Why is it important for children to know about surveying and the geospatial industry in general? The new geotechnologies are attractive to children and this allows them to master general knowledge about the types of measurements that are carried out on earth earlier, in this way they can develop specialties that discover new ways of measuring much earlier.

What are you going to do as a GKiS ambassador? Disseminate the brand and train young people and children to be interested in measurement geotechnologies.

What are your hobbies? Walking in unknown places surrounded by nature, playing football and riding a bike with my daughter.

If you/your company had a GKiS character, what would it be? It would be a girl with a helmet and a compass in her hand

What resource would you like to see next from GKiS? A poster on Easter Island measuring the Moai

Anything else you’d like to add that you think our audience (surveyors, teachers, parents) would be interested in? The installation of a measurement application on cell phones to give it a more positive use.
