Across the board, we are seeing the use of GIS maturing into the enterprise space, with Local Governments leading the charge. Local Governments are realising that it is no longer good enough to just rely on the GIS department to answer their location questions. (more…)
2010… where did that go? The year has seen the release of a major version of ArcGIS, and some technology trends maturing to a point that makes them key to an organisation’s strategy in 2011 and beyond. But first, let’s discuss ArcGIS 10. (more…)
It’s amazing how many different industries leverage location intelligence.
Take the Westralia Airport Corporation (WAC) for example, who have just become Australia’s first airport to use enterprise-wide location intelligence. (more…)
I’m really passionate about GeoDesign because of my background in landscape architecture. There are so many similarities in landscape architecture and GeoDesign – in fact, during my university days, one of the greatest challenges was integrating GIS into the design curriculum. I think it is more standard to have GIS in the design curriculum nowadays, but GIS is still not a standard tool used by designers.
On a personal level, something I’d like to see is how GIS can be better integrated with design workflows. I am especially interested in ideas and feedback from GIS users and designers on how GeoDesign can bring us a step closer to a more holistic design approach – so feel free to comment on this post and we can get a conversation going!
Anyway, let’s go back to the beginning and talk about what GeoDesign really means. (more…)
If you’re a client of ours, then you’ll know, Ozri is kind of a big deal for us! It’s our annual national user conference where clients, business partners and colleagues from all around Australia get together to share ideas and talk about the latest happenings in location intelligence. It’s a really great event, an excellent opportunity to network with other GIS professionals and the perfect place to get inspired about what GIS can do for you, your organisation and the world.
Ozri is massive – hundreds of people fly in from around the country for it – and it’s something we really look forward to putting on. Which is why I wanted to let you know that today, we have officially put out the Call for Papers! If you’ve had a great experience with location intelligence, or have a GIS that others should know about, then you should get involved! (more…)
GIS day is all about celebrating the role that GIS plays in the world, and raising awareness. It’s celebrated in more than 80 countries world-wide.
How have you celebrated this most special of days? (more…)
Cloud Computing is quickly emerging as a technology that everyone can leverage. The technology and architecture that Cloud service and deployment models offer are a key area of research and development for GIS technology. (more…)
What version of Python comes with ArcGIS 10? Can I batch validate my data reviewer jobs at a particular time of day? What is this COLLADA data format? These are just some of the questions that people came up and asked me during the recent Technology Directions roadshow. It is always so fantastic to have people come up and ask us about parts of the software and how they could use it, so I thought I would share the answers with you.
Do you make really fantastic maps that you think the world should see? If so, then boy, do we have the opportunity for you…
Put your organisation on the map (so to speak…)! Put your expertise on show! Get some recognition for your hard work! Esri Australia clients are invited to submit their maps for consideration for Volume 26, the 2011 Esri Map Book.
The Esri Map Book has been getting published every year since 1984. It’s a really beautifully presented and important book for anyone in the spatial industry – all over the world. It’s the only publication dedicated to acknowledging the important and innovative accomplishments of GIS users around the world.
If you’ve got a really great GIS project that you want to show off to the world, get involved and become part of history in the making! Submissions must be received by 19 November, so take a read of this press release to find out how to enter.
We’ve spent the past couple of days at the spatial@gov conference in Canberra, and while overall it’s been a fantastic conference, we had a particularly exciting start to Day 2, with a very special VIP visit to our stand!
