As part of World GIS Day Spatial Vision hosted a panel discussion ‘Developing the Next Generation of Spatial Analysts’. The eclectic mix of professionals and students from the sector, academia and representative bodies gave rise to a number of tremendous ideas and observations.
Spatial Vision’s Managing Director, Glenn Cockerton, provides an overview of trends and developments in industries including technology, geospatial, space, and surveying.
Last Friday, the Spatial Vision team attended the annual RMIT GSSA Awards Night to recognise some very talented students undertaking geospatial sciences. Presented in conjunction with RMIT University, the awards represent our commitment to nurturing the next generation of geospatial professionals.
For most of us, our first introduction to maps was by a teacher at primary school. As we progressed through the education system, atlases were introduced, exposing students to the art of cartography and the science of geography.
Generating complex gazetteer indexes is the bane of cartographers. Before the advent of computers, this was an entirely manual process.
In conjunction with John Wiley and Sons, Spatial Vision has recently completed work on the 9th Edition of the Jacaranda Atlas, the pre-eminent student atlas in Australia.
