The Geospatial Council of Australia (GCA) has announced a new strategic partnership with Australian Spatial Analytics (ASA), one of Australia’s fastest-growing spatial analysis companies.

Since 2020, ASA has been instrumental in providing careers in the geospatial and engineering professions for more than 150 neurodivergent adults, who normally face a 34% unemployment rate.

The company has developed an inclusive workplace where employees provide professional spatial data and digital engineering services for a wide range of clients.

ASA has grown rapidly in recent years, opening new offices in capital cities around the country.

“ASA is proud to empower Australia’s neurodivergent talent to create the next generation of professionals for the geospatial industry,” said Geoff Smith, ASA’s CEO.

“We are excited to partner with GCA to share our learnings with the geospatial community and support our talented people to further their careers with its members.”

According to the GCA, the new strategic partnership with ASA underscores its commitment to championing and promoting inclusion, particularly at a time when the geospatial sector is facing a significant workforce shortage.

“The partnership with ASA underscores GCA’s commitment to fostering innovation and inclusivity in the geospatial sector,” said Tony Wheeler, CEO of GCA. “We believe this collaboration will create a dynamic synergy, contributing to positive change in the industry.”

“Given many people with conditions such as autism spectrum disorder and dyslexia have extraordinary skills in pattern recognition and mathematics, along with exceptional memories, this presents as a competitive advantage for those companies that embrace the opportunity within their own workforces.”
