Esri geoprocessing product engineer, Lauren Bennett, will present on some of the latest advancements in 3D temporal and spatial analysis.


From saving millions of dollars for the sugarcane industry to mapping bees using tiny micro-sensors, Ozri 2014 is set to lift the lid on some of the most exciting developments in GIS applications.

In addition to user presentations, the event will also include in-depth technical sessions designed to help local GIS professionals sharpen their Esri skills.

Event Technical Director John Hasthorpe said this year’s event promised to provide participants with some of the latest developments in Esri’s GIS technology.

“We’re always looking to improve the experience for Ozri participants,” Mr Hasthorpe said. “With the launch of ArcGIS Professional and advancements in 3D technology, Ozri 2014 will offer Australian users with an in-depth look at the direction GIS technology is headed.

“As such, we’ve incorporated some exciting new elements which will give conference goers a fantastic insight into the cutting-edge applications of GIS technology.”

Three of Esri’s sharpest minds have been confirmed for the event, which will be hosted at the iconic Adelaide Oval from 1-3 October, bringing with them the latest developments in the ArcGIS platform.

Esri director of imagery – and special assistant to company president Jack Dangermond – Lawrie Jordan will bring more than 30 years of industry experience and provide his vision for future trends in imagery and satellite programs.

Joining him from Redlands, California will be husband and wife duo Lauren and Nathan Bennett, who will visit Australia for the first time.

Lauren – geoprocessing product engineer – will present on some of the latest advancements in 3D temporal and spatial analysis, while Nathan – technical evangelist – will showcase some of the best enterprise integration applications within the ArcGIS platform.

The program has also been bolstered by a selection of some of the best examples of user implemented solutions from around Australia.

A keynote user presentation will come from centre manager of the Herbert Resource Information Centre, Raymond De Lai, who will demonstrate how GIS is improving the delivery processes for sugarcane production – from farm to mill.

Another special user presentation will be delivered by Paulo De Souza – OCE science leader on micro-sensing technologies and systems at CSIRO – who will provide an insight into the future of micro-sensor technology.

The Ozri 2014 program will also feature a range of advanced technical user presentations – delivered by local and international GIS experts – including sessions covering geodatabases, advanced development (Python) and 3D analysis.
