SSSI & HEI Webinar – Environmental Applications of Spatial Technologies
Apr 29 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
SSSI & HEI Webinar - Environmental Applications of Spatial Technologies

SSSI in conjunction with the Hunter Environmental Institute will present this webinar with three pre-eminent speakers:

Amy Steiger (Cardno)

Title: RPAS and thermal cameras for wildlife detection post-bushfire and coastal monitoring

Details: Amy has promoted the use of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) gaining experience with remote data capture to cover a range of coastal, environmental and land development applications.

RPAS thermal inspection capability was deployed this summer in wildlife detection post-bushfires.

Amy has also done volumetric surveys of beaches and flown isolated coastal cliff faces in NSW to capture high-resolution photography and derived photogrammetric models to identify geotechnical hazards and contribute to coastal monitoring.

Charity Mundava (WaterNSW)

Title: Remote Sensing in Water Management

Details: Charity will discuss the use of GIS and remote sensing to support water catchment management, feasibility and environmental studies for critical water infrastructure across the state and to support ongoing research into and management of river catchments. Charity will touch on the significance and spatial support for this in the recent NSW bushfires coordinating reservoir availability (in drought) and access for helicopter water drops and supporting bushfire fighting efforts.

Associate Professor In-Young Yeo (University of Newcastle)

Title: Remote sensing and GIS applications for water resources management

Details: Dr Yeo will explain how remote sensing can be used as a technique for assessing soil moisture using multi-source data fusion approaches, vegetation monitoring and water requirement with remote sensing and water balance approach.

She will explain the impacts of conservation management practices in agricultural catchments assessed using catchment model and remote sensing/GIS drawing on examples from Australian and American case studies

3rd Australasian Exploration Geoscience Conference @ Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre
Sep 15 @ 9:00 am – Sep 20 @ 4:30 pm
3rd Australasian Exploration Geoscience Conference @ Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre

The AEGC petroleum, mineral and water resource industry conference, incorporating the ASEG-PESA International Geophysical Conference and Exhibition, will be jointly hosted by the Australian Institute of Geoscientists (AIG), Australian Society of Exploration Geophysicists (ASEG) and Petroleum Exploration Society of Australia (PESA).

Under the conference theme of Geoscience for a Sustainable World, the AEGC will attract a large number of international and national delegates and organisations from across the spectrum of Australasian geosciences, representing industry, government and academia. It is expected there will be dedicated streams for Australian basins, resourcing a sustainable energy challenge, data, innovation and technology, high-quality resources for future generations and developing the future workforce.

Atlases in time: ICA Joint Commission Conference @ Madrid, Spain
Apr 20 @ 9:00 am – Apr 23 @ 5:00 pm
Atlases in time: ICA Joint Commission Conference @ Madrid, Spain

The International Cartographic Association (ICA) Commission on Atlases, the ICA Commission on Map Design, the Joint ICA-IGU Commission on Toponymy, the National Geographic Institute of Spain (IGN) and the Spanish Society for Cartography, Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (SECFT) will jointly host a conference on atlases, toponymy and map design in Madrid.

During six sessions of four presentations each, questions concerning evolving dissemination concepts and techniques for atlases, recent development and examples of national atlases as well as important map design and toponomastic issues in atlas production will be discussed.

The theme of the event will be ‘Atlases in time’. Presentations will be held in a 20-minute format of 15 minutes presenting and 5 minutes discussion.

Survey and Spatial NZ conference @ Novotel Lakeside, Rotorua
Aug 1 @ 9:00 am – Aug 3 @ 5:00 pm
Survey and Spatial NZ conference @ Novotel Lakeside, Rotorua

Survey and Spatial NZ’s 2022 conference will be held from 1 to 3 August at the Novotel Lakeside, Rotorua. The conference is the biggest continuing professional development event of the year for NZ surveying and spatial professionals. It invites sharing of knowledge amongst peers, bringing together networking opportunities for all delegates and is an essential event for professional development and connectivity within the sector.

The choice of Rotorua as the location is apt, given the conference theme of ‘Turning up the Heat’. The organisers aim to stimulate discussion regarding challenges in regional areas, which include climate change and developments outside of Auckland.
