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.

2021 Space & Geospatial Collaborative Workshop @ Adelaide Convention Centre
Sep 16 all-day
2021 Space & Geospatial Collaborative Workshop @ Adelaide Convention Centre

The Space & Geospatial Collaborative Workshop will be jointly hosted by the Andy Thomas Space Foundation and the Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute in Adelaide the day following the 12th Australian Space Forum and the day before Spatial Information Day.

This inter-disciplinary workshop will provide a unique opportunity for professionals from both space and spatial sectors to:

  • Learn about Australia’s renewed commitment to space technology development
  • Get updates on the requirements and capabilities of the modern spatial information industry using applications such as PNT (positioning, navigation and timing), EO (Earth Observation) and telecommunications
  • Connect and discuss the increasing synergy and collaborative opportunities between the two sectors.
Subsurface Utilities and Digital Twins @ Online webinar
May 13 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Subsurface Utilities and Digital Twins @ Online webinar

The presenters for this topical webinar will be Dr Craig Roberts, Senior Lecturer in Surveying/GPS/Geodesy at UNSW and Wayne Patterson Director, Spatial Operations at the NSW Department of Customer Service.

Roberts will give a short update on the revision of the Australian Standard, AS_5488 Classification of subsurface utility information in the context of datum modernisation, low-cost multi-GNSS and recent advances in positioning infrastructure in Australia.

Data storage, data distribution and security are identified as challenges suggesting a reimagined data governance will be needed. Could a spatial digital twin assist? What is a spatial digital twin? Is it a BIM? Where does it come from? What is an open data policy? Who can use it? Can I use it? Which datum? How accurate is the data?

Rather than just another PowerPoint webinar, Roberts will interview Patterson in a free-flowing format. Attendees will be invited to ask their own questions live in the chat as the conversation evolves.

This webinar is targeted at surveyors, geospatial users, students and the wider spatial community.

14th Australian Space Forum @ Adelaide Convention Centre
Oct 25 all-day
14th Australian Space Forum @ Adelaide Convention Centre

The Andy Thomas Space Foundation is looking forward to welcoming a global audience to the 14th Australian Space Forum, which will be held on Tuesday, 25 October 2022 at the Adelaide Convention Centre in South Australia.

Supported by the Australian Space Agency, the South Australian Space Industry Centre and SmartSat CRC, the Forum will provide an opportunity to stimulate ideas, share information about emerging technologies and network with influential space sector leaders and the broader community.

Participants can attend in-person, or virtually through the event’s global interactive platform.

Forum sessions will include international panels covering highly pertinent topics that shape our industry:

Earth Observation: The National Space Mission for Earth Observation is a major investment that will expand Australia’s capability in designing, manufacturing and operating space- and ground-based systems.

Optical Communications: A quantum leap in Australia’s secure and high-bandwidth communications to connect the world and beyond.

Foundation Services Rover: Exploring remote operations and autonomous systems by building on Australian expertise in the resources and mining sectors for the collection of lunar soil (regolith).
