Enterprise and Mobile Application (8)
We create mobile applications that allow business users or community members collect and report data using their mobile devices. We then convert this data into visualised reports on interactive maps for the wider audience to see.
We provide targeted, effective solutions for government organisations managing complexity associated with natural resources, land, hazards and threats, licensing and regulation, and community engagement.
Late 2016 the Commonwealth Government advised it was releasing more funding under the Inspiring Australia – Science Engagement Program which aims to contribute to the broader goals of science engagement in Australia. These goals are to inspire, motivate and cultivate a scientifically engaged community, optimistic about its future with Australian governments at all levels recognising the importance of effective science communication, and public engagement with the sciences. The program provides funding for grants and prizes, through both open and closed application processes. One such grant was for Citizen Science which provided competitive grants for nationally significant citizen science projects.
You can provide a physical world contextual experience to your customers, create a more safer work place, provide an innovative and effective accessibility options for visually impaired – some of the benefits for making your mobile apps location aware.
Proximity and Location Aware Technologies enable a mobile app to detect current location and then use this information to control events and information. As the technology matures and becomes more accessible, Mobile Apps utilise the location aware technologies. This new technology is increasingly being used by various organisations to engage their customers in delivering location-aware or location-specific services, collect valuable data in the field via citizen science/crowd sourcing and enable them to help explore facilities and services in large venues.
Safeguarding humpbacks whales against migratory interference. Shutting down illegal trash dumping through the identification of problem areas. Interactive biodiversity education tools for Victoria’s classrooms.
These diverse problems are all being addressed through mobile applications developed by Spatial Vision and key stakeholders that rely on one of the greatest untapped resources of the modern day: crowdsourced data. With nearly every Australian owning a mobile phone, the possibilities for cooperation between citizens and stakeholders are enormous, as demonstrated in a presentation by Katie Dick, one of our senior analysts at the Locate16 conference.
Every year around June, Apple holds a conference in San Francisco called the World Wide Developers Conference. I have wanted to go to this conference since starting to develop for Apple platforms back when I was at University
Getting to meet the engineers who make the platforms I work on and being one of the first learn about all the new technologies is something that I hoped to get the chance to do some day. This year I got that chance.
On the 8th of June I left Melbourne for sunny California. I hadn’t been on an overseas trip in a really long time so it was a great adventure for me.
The demand for smartphones continued to grow at an astounding 42% in the past year, according to IDC’s Worldwide Mobile Phone Tracker, with 154 million units shipped worldwide in Q2 2012. Not surprisingly, the corporate world is increasingly seeing the value of the mobile platform for delivery of their business systems and for communication with their clients. Recently we have seen an increasing number of tenders across Australia requiring mobile delivery as either the main platform or at least an important component.
Spatial Vision has had extensive experience in building mobile apps using smart phones and tablets. We would like to share our experience with you. ‘Navigating the Mobile Maze’ is the latest in our popular series of Under-the-Hood workshops.
We have successfully run various workshops to share and demonstrate our findings including the ‘Navigating the Mobile Maze’ workshop last November that received positive feedback.
Recently Spatial Vision's Application Services Division have been busy developing ICE (Integrated Catch & Effort) system for Fisheries Victoria. A large part of the ICE application revolves around operators entering data from paper forms which record the fish caught by each commercial fisher on a trip. This enables Fisheries Victoria to monitor fish stocks. Getting the data entry part of the application right was absolutely essential. Even small insufficiencies would add up, leading to hours wasted and endless frustration.
What are Web 2.0, Science 2.0 and Government 2.0 and why do they matter?
The web is firmly embedded in our lives. My teenage kids don’t know, and wouldn’t know life without it. My wife, kids and my mother, who is 80, all have Facebook pages. I can’t imagine how bored my kids would be if the web suddenly reverted back to static html pages, as it was not many years ago. The web has evolved from a place to find information to a place to hang out with friends.
The term Web 2.0 is used to describe a set of cumulative technologies that software developers could use to build applications that enabled everyone to build their own websites, to interact with applications and with each other . For this reason, Web 2.0 is also termed the ‘social network web’. The web is now actively used by every day people to collect and share information.
