After a quick break for morning tea we settled in for some really interesting presentations covering topics ranging from digital topographic mapping and ecological data management to maritime military GIS and Big Data spatial analytics.
Josie Bailey from the Victorian Department of Sustainability and Environment was first up, discussing the automated process that has been implemented to deliver nine accurate and current topographic mapping products, including formats for use on iPhones and iPads.
AMEC’s Ross Chrystall and Jeremy Hayden stepped the audience through the innovative end-to-end GIS data workflow employed to meet the needs of complex environmental reporting requirements on linear utility infrastructure projects.
Ian Halls was next up, taking us through the history of GIS usage by national hydrographic offices to manage data holding and production flowlines. Ian also discussed the recent implementation by the Australian Hydrographic Service of Esri’s Nautical Chart Solution to not only support foundation maritime military spatial data, but also help support in-field rapid environmental assessment activity.
Wrapping up the session was IBM’s Matthew Kadillak. Matthew discussed how Ordnance Survey – the national mapping and geographical data provider for the UK – is using Netezza Spatial for advanced spatial analytics on their extensive datasets, providing more insight to their internal and external customers.
After such an informative session, it’s definitely time for lunch!
