GIS Cloud Roadshow

Recently, our partners GIS Cloud travelled to Australia to exhibit at the Australian Utility Week as Strategic Sponsors, and promote the GIS Cloud platform in workshops throughout Australia and New Zealand. GIS Cloud offers a complete location-based solution for a variety of workflows in a wide range of use cases. The GIS Cloud platform allows you to build your own web and mobile apps on top of one of the fastest vector map engine technologies available today. 

Spatial Vision's Values Day

Last month our entire workplace ventured offsite for a values workshop. The purpose of this was to cement our already existing values into a clear-cut statement that would reinforce our existing culture, allow us to achieve company goals and ensure that potential new employees have similar values.  It was also important that all staff could strongly recognise and associate with each of the values and principles.

Updating the Victorian State Command Centre Wall Map

Spatial Vision was recently commissioned by Emergency Management Victoria (EMV), to update the Victorian State Command Centre wall map.  The original wall map was produced by Spatial Vision back in 2004 and was starting to show its age. Fading from the sun over time and peeling off the wall meant it was no longer an effective operational product for the State Command Centre team during critical operations. 

Making Web Maps in Chinese

Recently, a client commissioned us to map a web map of Australia to distribute in China. Specifically, the use case called for a web map of Australia with Chinese language labels, so that Chinese native-speakers could easily interact with the map of Australia in their own language. Both states and capital cities needed labels, and of course the more readable the cartography underneath – the better.

Health Informatics Conference

Last week I attended the HIC Conference in Brisbane. This conference was run by the Health Informatics Society of Australia (HISA) and highlighted innovation and the digital transformation of the healthcare sector. There was a focus on the central role that information and health informatics brings in connecting the health care system, being smart with data, and enhancing practitioner and consumer experience in healthcare interactions.

Raster and Vector Data in GIS

When we come to depict any spatial data in GIS, from physical assets and locations to real-world events and trends, there are two differing systems to display data; Raster and Vector representations.  Both of these methods present data in their own format, with their own advantages and disadvantages.

What a time to be a user or developer of GIS! To re-use an overused, but no less true turn of phrase, we’re seeing the ‘democratisation’ of spatial data (does it help I imagined saying that through gritted teeth?). Data is being made freely and widely available, but also key to the success of this is how we access, consume and exploit it.

A Visit to a GIS Powerhouse

In May this year I had the opportunity to visit the offices of RMSI Limited in Noida India. Spatial Vision has worked on a number of projects with RMSI where RMSI has provided the data collection effort and SV has played a QA role.

Understanding ABS Geographies

The first data from the 2016 Census has just been released so it's important to take time to understand the different geographies used by Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and what data is being released for each of them.

Metes and Bounds

Spatial Vision recently completed a project for the Electoral Commission of Queensland preparing a series of maps for new electoral district boundaries.  As well as the maps, there was a legislative requirement that ‘metes and bounds’ boundary descriptions be prepared for the new boundaries for publication in the Queensland Government Gazette .
