Locate19’s full program touches down

By on 12 February, 2019

The organisers of the geospatial behemoth Locate19 have released the full program for the April event, offering a discounted ticket price until 6pm on February 13.

The full program for Locate19 has been revealed — and it’s absolutely jam-packed. It’s time to start planning and doing your stretches, because there’s more on than one can resonably manage, in six streams over┬áthree very full days.

The program kicks off at a relatively sedate pace on Monday, April 8 with the Market Day and activities to launch ‘The Hub’ — a central space for more intimate engagement and networking opportunities that builds on the Interaction Zone concept at Locate18.

Victorian Chief Engineer Collette Burke will help launch this new area with her session on Victoria’s Digital Transformation, also appearing in a panel discussion co-hosted by surveyor-general Craig Sandy. A special Locate session of Georabble will take place from 17:30 to 19:00 to close the opening day.

Tuesday opens the program in earnest, with a Welcome to Country ceremony, SIBA|GITA breakfast and plenary sessions rounding out the morning.

Firing on all cylinders after lunch, all six streams open concurrently. The ‘Surveying in a digital world’ track will cover everything from quality assurance with multibeam data, to maintaining an ethical standard of practice in an age of disruption.

Five simultaneous sessions in the ‘Advanced agriculture’ track will work through themes as diverse as mainstreaming of precision agriculture techniques, to reusing mining exploration data to assess land suitability, with public infrastructure, smart transport and infrastructure assets, utility management and urban planning and smart city tech all boasting similarly full schedules.

A space capability forum run by Phil Delaney of FrontierSI will run alongside these tracks until the evening, with the regional Asia-Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards dinner will fill the evening program from 7pm.

From there it’s a race to the finish with a full day’s programming across six streams until closing plenaries following afternoon tea. A spectrum of sessions exploring ‘Geospatial technologies driving our digital future’, the latest initiatives in ‘Technology and data to protect our environment for future generations’ round out a colossal program of presentations.

Go and explore the full program in detail, and use the code ’48HOUR’ to secure discounted registration until 6pm AEDT on Wednesday, February 13.
