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

SSSI Webinar - Mobile laser scanning: how it works and what you can do with it @ Online

Are you a young surveyor and always wondered what the digital frontier of the profession looked like? Are you mid career but developed foundation skills but have not yet ventured into the digital data part of the discipline? Are you a seasoned professional who loves to see what amazing things you can do with the tools and technologies of the 21st century?

If you answered yes to any of those questions then this is a webinar you won’t want to miss!

Michael Finlay is a Geospatial Engineer who specialises in 3D laser scanning and point cloud technologies. He is an early career professional who has been working at Jacobs for 8 years and is passionate about all things 3D laser scanning, especially mobile laser scanning (MLS). Michael is a trail blazer in developing the digital data team and discipline at Jacobs as not only a real value add, efficiency but product and service enricher for the surveying team. He gets involved with the planning, scanning, processing, adjusting, classifying, extracting, automation, analysis, visualisation and supports the interfaces of surveying and digital engineering and GIS environments for stakeholders from a broad variety of disciplines.

Check out Michael’s profile to see some of the amazing projects he has been involved in and how he champions this modern digital space for surveying and geospatial engineers.
