The NHVR engaged Spatial Vision to develop a strategy for better understanding and realising the opportunities to leverage geospatial data and technologies.
There has never been a more interesting time to be involved in Local Government GIS, especially in Victoria.
There is a Tsunami of new spatial data becoming available to Local Governments that may open up opportunities for delivering more spatially intelligent and reliable services.
Graeme Martin recently spoke about the challenges, opportunities and possible responses to the initiatives cropping up, and collaborative approaches to making the most of this transformative time.
Location intelligence can play a role in addressing many of these issues, but only if we work together.
Geospatial Knowledge Infrastructure (GKI) is essential to facilitating such collaboration, in integrating geospatial concepts, technologies and information with societal and technological change as part of a much wider digital ecosystem.
Watch the panel discussion on Advancing the Role of Geospatial Knowledge Infrastructure here.
Spatial Vision are honoured to have won the Environment & Sustainability category for the Embedding Climate Adaptation in Agriculture project along with the North East Catchment Management Authority and Natural Decisions. We were also delighted to have won the Export category award with our Geospatial Industry Strategy for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia General Commission for Surveying and FrontierSI.
When talking about 3D data we often think about high end fancy visualizations that give that wow factor where you can barely tell the difference between what is real and what is digital. In the spatial sciences industry we are not normally concerned with the Ultra High Definition graphics, Ray Tracing, and photorealistic texturing; normally we settle for much less because we only need the basics for analysis…
Parochialism is a common phenomenon among specialists. Ask any specialist why they’re interested in their area and they will no doubt answer with a sweeping string of superlatives and generalisations as to why their chosen specialty is absolutely fundamental to our understanding of humanity.
The geospatial industry is guilty of this too—within the world of data we push the value of location to the very forefront of our thinking.
The summit attracts CEOs and Executives from the global Geospatial Industry, technology companies and start-ups, system integrators, solution providers, digital design and engineering; national geospatial agencies; investors and venture capitalists; incubation units; and consulting firms.
This year marks twenty years of Spatial Vision. To celebrate this milestone, our managing director Glenn Cockerton sat down with Position magazine to reflect upon the journey, and where to next.
What is a Digital Earth? According to the International Journal of Digital Earth, the term refers to “…a virtual representation of the planet, encompassing all its systems and forms, both natural environment and human societies, manifested as a multi-dimensional, multi-scale, multi-temporal, and multi-layer information facility.
“I believe we need a ‘Digital Earth’. A multi-resolution, three-dimensional representation of the planet, into which we can embed vast quantities of geo-referenced data” —Al Gore, 1998 (speech)
