SDB Day 2019

The International Forum on Satellite-Derived Bathymetry 2019

Esteemed speakers and guests from hydrographic offices, marine industry, service providers and research institutes around the world will gather for Australia’s first SDB Day in May 2019.

Satellite Derived Bathymetry (SDB) is a method for providing high-resolution water depth data in shallow water environments. These waters are notoriously difficult and expensive to access. The method combines satellite imagery with advanced algorithms to provide affordable and accurate data, and all within a relatively quick turnaround time.

The forum addresses the urgent need for both users and producers of SDB to jointly discuss capabilities, standards, data integration and handling uncertainties in its application.

SICC Webinar: Reporting and Measuring Bushfire Mitigation Work, a Software Pilot
Apr 28 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm
SICC Webinar: Reporting and Measuring Bushfire Mitigation Work, a Software Pilot

Eugene Lamnek created GeoIT Solutions in 2002, and has been developing ArcGIS customizations, add-ins and applications ever since. In this time Eugene has developed numerous bushfire applications for the CFS and the CFA as well as water and wastewater modelling software, asset management applications and interfaces, and open source applications for numerous clients including SA Water, Santos and DEW.

The Treatment Reporting System (TRS) currently in pilot phase, will allow organisations to store and manage their bushfire mitigation tasks, as well as measuring these tasks against the requirements of the Bushfire Management Area Plans (BMAPs). The system will allow users to store bushfire mitigation tasks, their spatial extent, values of work, time of work and completion status. Tasks are mapped and measured against required actions, defined by within the CFS BMAPs. The TRS will provide an effective mechanism for reporting the adequacy of on ground mitigation work (potentially at a State-wide level) by measuring mitigation work against well-defined mitigation targets. Users of the system will include local government, state government, private organisations and potentially even individual landholders.

Locate Connect: AGO — Defence GeoINT strategy launch @ Webinar
Jun 11 @ 1:00 pm – 3:45 pm
Locate Connect: AGO -- Defence GeoINT strategy launch @ Webinar

Join us for the first session in our ‘Locate Connect’ online learning series! Hear from Scott Dewar, Director, Chris Hewett, Assistant Secretary GEOINT Capability and Development & Phil Shears, Director DEF799 Phase 2.

In this session from 1300 – 1400, the Australian Geospatial-Intelligence Organisation (AGO) will be launching the Defence Geospatial-Intelligence (GEOINT) Strategy, a document that addresses how the Defence GEOINT Community will transform to meet the future needs of the Australian Defence Force. The AGO Executive will also provide an update on their GEOINT projects and announce upcoming opportunities for industry and discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the organisation.

Then from 1430 – 1545, AGO, along with Frontier SI will describe how The Analytics Lab Program (AGO Labs) fits into the bigger picture of AGO capability and summarise the outcomes of their 2019 activities. AGO Labs, coordinated through FrontierSI, is investigating a number of ways to better engage and work with industry. Specifically, the AGO is keen to attract a wider pool of companies and technologies to draw on for automated geospatial intelligence. The primary focus of this program is to address AGO capability challenges through a small number of short-term industry projects, with a focus on machine learning and analytics for producing automated imagery analysis, including automated object classification. AGO will announce a new 2020 program of challenges hoping to find innovative solutions through their partnership with FrontierSI.

FOSS4G 2021 @ Buenos Aires, Argentina
Sep 27 @ 9:00 am – Oct 2 @ 4:30 pm
FOSS4G 2021 @ Buenos Aires, Argentina

Organised by OSGeo, this international annual gathering of location enthusiasts is the largest global gathering for geospatial software. Now in its 15th year, FOSS4G (ie. Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial) brings together developers, users, decision-makers and observers from a broad spectrum of organisations and fields of operation.

Through six days of workshops, presentations, discussions, and cooperation, FOSS4G participants create effective and relevant geospatial products, standards, and protocols. The 2021 event will be focused for the first time on South America and will be held with the close collaboration of the GeoLibres Association in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Geo Connect Asia 2024 @ Sands Expo & Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore
Mar 6 – Mar 7 all-day
Geo Connect Asia 2024 @ Sands Expo & Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

The annual Geo Connect Asia Show & Conferences offers a two day, in-person meeting place for ASEAN’s vibrant geospatial community. Bringing geospatial solutions to the heart of decision-making the event combines with technologies from the digital construction, drone and remote sensing markets.

Geo Connect Asia looks to host its ASEAN neighbours and build on a vibrant community as new technologies add new application tools to enable the Industry 4.0 Revolution. The emergence of AI, blockchain, IoT, robotics and UAVs create a new dynamic and platforms for a region well equipped to take on the challenges ahead.
