With the end of 2018 fast approaching, the penultimate issue of the year is shaping up to be a big one.
Here’s a look at just few of the features to look forward to in this special October/November issue of Position:
- Bubble-bathymetric breakthrough
Experiments with multibeam echosounders in the Bay of Plenty yield stellar results with bubble measurements, promising major implications for offshore oil and gas exploration, climate research and marine science.
- Alice Springs upgrade
Maintaining Australia’s access to satellite data in the heart of the country — a national overhaul that acknowledges local cultural heritage while optimising connectivity to space.
- Subterranean peril
How losing track of underground utility assets can bring a global city to its knees – Sydney’s light rail project, the tyranny of undocumented assets, and how to untie a Gordian knot.
- Boundaries of history
Building models to educate a new generation on a significant WWI historical site through rigorous survey practice.
- The space race for geospatial data
Formed on July 1, the Australian Space Agency has its work cut out. Leaders are scrambling to establish a charter and finding some return on that $15 million allocated to establishing partnerships. What does this mean for Australia’s space-reliant geospatial businesses? We sit down with Anthony Murfett, Deputy Head of the Australian Space Industry, to find out.
- Smart Cities and health – the new dimension
What is a 30 minute city, and what does it mean for the wellbeing of its inhabitants? How about those without access to amenities that many of us take for granted, limited in access to public space, medical facilities and nutritious food options? The fields of urban planning and public health professionals are converging around new research and analysis techniques that draw from both disciplines – and we examine Australian projects at the forefront.
You’ll learn about these issues and a whole lot more in the next issue of Position.
