The Housing Development Data (HDD) project was concerned with the development of datasets that document housing development across 32 Local Government Areas (LGAs) in the Melbourne Metropolitan area. Preparation of the HDD data involved identifying changes in housing stock over a 12-month period and producing two types of geographic datasets.
Normalised Difference Vegetation Index or NDVI is a method of determining crop health by measuring how well the crop reflects light. Images can be capture via satellite, aircrafts or UAVs. NDVI is a particularly useful tool for farmers and agronomists, because it helps them to easily track their crop or pasture performance.
The School of Global, Urban and Social Studies (GUSS) within RMIT University recently undertook a pilot project to determine the feasibility of using machine-learning ability to identify occupied ground surface car spaces using aerial photography (NearMap) and satellite imagery from Sentinel-2.
The Coastal Climate Change Impact Assessment project is a great example of how our solutions assist our clients to better manage their natural and built assets. By integrating geographic and environmental data for the entire Victorian coastline, we provided advanced spatial analyses to address some of Victoria's most pressing environmental, economic and resource issues.
International GIS Day took place on November 15. Since 2015, GIS Cloud have run a GIS Day Contest to promote initiatives and project ideas that influence technological advancement and sustainability in local communities around the world

Currently, Victoria’s most valuable fishery is the Rock Lobster Fishery, which is accessed by both the commercial and recreational fishing sectors. While the commercial sector is highly regulated and under strict quota management, there is no information on the level of catch taken by the recreational sector or even the number of recreational fishers participating.
Geological Survey of NSW (GSNSW) engaged Spatial Vision to design and develop a new release of their MinView web mapping application. MinView is a web-based delivery system that uses your internet browser to deliver an interactive mapping application in which you can display and explore the Department’s rich collection of geoscientific data.
An event was held recently at Spatial Vision to recognise and celebrate the strong relationship that has existed between Spatial Vision and the University over the last 17 years.
Assisting establish Spatial Vision in 1999, the University has provided three of the company’s board of directors helping with corporate governance, strategic planning and bringing significant corporate and commercial experience to the company.
