We are thrilled to officially confirm that Major General Dick Wilson, the newly appointed chair of the Queensland Reconstruction Authority (QRA) and the Director of the Defence Intelligence Organisation, will be attending Ozri 2011!
As the head of the agency tasked with rebuilding Queensland, Major General Wilson will provide his unique perspective of the devastating 2011 natural disasters that brought an entire state to breaking-point. In his keynote speech, he will deliver insight into the ongoing role of geospatial technology in large scale emergency response and recovery efforts.
The QRA’s interactive online GIS, which features crowd sourced reconstruction imagery and up-to-date information from areas affected by the natural disasters, continues to put spatial technology in the national spotlight by providing Australians with an unprecedented insight into how the nation’s biggest reconstruction effort is unfolding.
Major General Wilson will be joined at Ozri by a host of special guests and many of Australia’s leading geo-enabled businesses, councils and government agencies. Together they will explore some of the most compelling spatial projects undertaken in recent times.
