Ozri 2015 GIS Generations

So long Ozri – it’s been a blast!

Wow – what a huge couple of days! The conference started with Gary Johnson breaking the news this will be the last Ozri in its current format, and it seems people made the most of their last Ozri experience here in Melbourne.

It was a jam-packed conference with over 70 presentations, two plenaries, 17 ArcLab sessions, five focused streams and three social functions, including the farewell function, which has closed the event for another year.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts on how you envisage Ozri to play out in the future. Until then – ‘keep calm and map on’!

The show was kicked off by recorded video from Jack, welcoming everyone to the event and addressing this year’s theme – “GIS Generations”. Our industry has gone through a few “generations” now – from the Arc/Info and AML days, to ArcView 3.x, to ArcGIS Desktop and Server, and we’re rapidly entering the new era of Web GIS. We’re hitting new industries, new users, and Jack’s prediction is of an upcoming “geoenlightenment” where GIS will be ubiquitous.

Ozri 2015 day two plenary:

Following a jam-packed first day at Ozri, topped off by an amazing night of wining, dining and live performances from Ross ‘Daddy Cool’ Wilson and X Factor favourite Jason Heerah, many delegates were in need of a little pick-me-up.

Thankfully, MapData Services came prepared, giving everyone chilled Powerade to kick start the morning.

Re-energised and ready for what was in store for Ozri day-two, Esri Australia Professional Services Executive Manager Jeff Robinson officially opened the plenary and welcomed 2015 Special Achievement in GIS (SAG) Award recipient, the Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) to the stage.

City Lights – Ozri , on top of the world

As soon as we started walking down the narrow lane-way we knew we were in for a classic Melbourne night.  When we reached the Luminare rooftop we weren’t disappointed – what a view!  We really were on top of the world and with the Melbourne skyline as our backdrop, the stage was set for another great Ozri Gala Dinner.
