Adelaide 3D City Model

Specialist Talk 3D

Australian cities are growing vertically as planning policy drives urban infill rather than greenfield development. To allow us to plan and properly assess the impact of new high rise development the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure have developed a 3 Dimensional map base of metropolitan Adelaide and acquired tools to plan and view the city ahead of growth. This presentation aims to demonstrate the datasets held in the model and demonstrate the planning, transport and community engagement capabilities being developed.

Democratising Space

Specialist Talk Space

Economies around the world recognise that space is a huge driver for innovation but it's not just about launching rockets. Space is an enabler for new jobs, new industries and new technologies, igniting the imagination and inspiring students of all ages to be interested in math, science, art, design, technology and engineering. We’re building an ecosystem of space innovation and a culture of collaboration to spin in and spin out ideas, facilitate and coordinate the makers, end-users, teachers of space tech and disparate space stakeholders to innovate, incubate and accelerate and commercialise new tech.

GDA 2020―SA Rollout

Specialist Talk Datum

All spatial data users would have heard about a new coordinate datum, GDA2020, over the last couple of years. We’re now reaching the pointy end to enable GDA2020 as the operational coordinate datum for South Australia. State Government agencies such as DPTI, PIRSA, DEW & DEM will be delivering their spatial datasets through the Location SA Map Viewer & Open Data Portal Data.SA in GDA2020 within the first quarter of 2019. This presentation will highlight what you need to know to be ready for this change.

The Power of A Professional Network

Panel Presentation Women in Spatial

Are you a back room geo-type, working alone, or in a small group of technical professionals? Do you hesitate to put yourself forward for networking or speaking opportunities? You could be missing out on developing your biggest asset, your connection to a network! A network provides people with a chance to connect with a wider circle of professionals, and helps to build confidence to be more involved. This interactive presentation will explore the personal benefits of expanding your professional circle and help you unleash the power of your own network!

Looking Back: A 20 Year Retrospective View of the Spatial Industry in SA

Specialist Talk Special Session

The 1990s were exciting times for spatial in South Australia. Government created a Spatial Project Team to establish the “framework and infrastructure” to facilitate greater spatial cooperation and collaboration between the public & private sectors. A key outcome of this initiative was building the skills base and creating capability to win large overseas contracts. SA was a spatial industry leader in Australia, especially in the application of spatial methods in government. Opinions may differ about what happened, but had the Spatial Program succeeded, it could have consolidated SA’s position. Twenty years have passed, did the Spatial Program make a difference?

Looking Forward: SA Geospatial Strategy – The Power of People, Data & Location

Specialist Talk Special Session

The power of people, data & location: the Department of the Premier and Cabinet is in the process of developing a Geospatial Strategy for South Australia, which will be a strategic framework to position South Australia at the forefront of geospatial technology, data and services, and will leverage location-based information benefit of South Australian citizens. The talk will highlight: (1) findings from the co-design workshops, face-to-face meetings and the online surveys; and (2) where to from here.

How Geospatially Literate Are You?

Specialist Talk Education

In Australia, the geospatial competency level of school leavers is debated, and it’s supposed deficiency blamed on the excessive use and over-reliance on technology. Are Millennials and the iGeneration really losing their geospatial capabilities, and is this loss as widespread across society as the technology itself? SSSI members are a professional group of people dedicated to geospatial information creation and manipulation, so the assumption would be that we are geospatially ahead of the curve. We look at what it means to be geospatially literate and why it's important. Audience participation will be encouraged, using smart devices, to respond to questions designed to test geospatial literacy.
