Australia’s Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information (CRCSI) has signed a memorandum of understanding with Geospatial Media and Communications (GMC) to enhance cooperation in their area of outreach.
Both organisations have expressed a desire to utilise their experience to engage in outreach activities that benefit the spatial sciences industry and research to a broader, international community. The collaboration will see the organisations cooperate in the various areas of geospatial technologies, including surveying, remote sensing analysis and spatial data management. They envisage the benefits will be felt across broad areas encompassing agriculture, defense, utility, health, disaster management and climate change.
As agreed in the memorandum of understanding, CRCSI will support Geospatial Media in taking forward its research innovations to a wider audience and provide first hand access to related reports for its media platforms.
“I am very pleased with the new collaboration between two innovative-driven organisations.” said Dr Peter Woodgate, CEO, CRCSI. “I see great potential in working closely together.”
Geospatial Media will enable wider reach to CRCSI’s research and innovation outcomes through global and regional conferences, as well as through its print magazine Geospatial World and video platform GeoBuiz.
“Collaboration with CRCSI is landmark development towards pursuing forward our vision of ‘Making difference through geospatial knowledge in world economy and society’,” said Sanjay Kumar, CEO, GMC. “Technology and business environment we live in today is in constant transformation, offering exciting opportunities to geospatial professionals.
“Through this strategic partnership, Geospatial Media would facilitate outreach and scalability of spatial sciences related research innovations at CRCSI and its adoption across different end user communities worldwide, further enabling commercialization and entrepreneurial engagement between research, industry and end user communities.”
