Hudson Moody

HudsonWith over forty years experience in land surveying, Hudson has considerable experience covering a wide range of traditional aspects of surveying including topographical surveys, construction set out, monitoring surveys, district plan compliance assessments and cadastral surveying for commercial, urban and rural subdivisions.

Hudson has developed an area of expertise specialising in the analysis of sunlight and shading in conjunction with district plan requirements which included developing his own software to make the task easier. Hudson is always looking for a challenge to test his skills and enjoys working on those out of the ordinary type surveys

Some of the more interesting projects he has encountered include verifying the scale of a large model constructed for a resource consent hearing, providing all of the survey control for an underground piped stormwater system beneath the streets of Wellington and setting out the Newtown Athletic track and lane markings when it was upgraded some years ago.

He has also served as the NZ Institute of Surveyors representative on the LINZ Survey & Titles Advisory Committee from 2003 to 2008 which dealt with the development and delivery of LandonLine services to the legal and survey professions.

Hudson is a very keen fisherman and he has cleverly used his survey and programming skills to produce localised bathymetric charts of his favourite fishing spots by combining recorded GPS and sounder data.
