Emerging technologies workshop sheds light on land management innovations
What are the latest innovations in Land Management? That was the topic of a great workshop for our clients and partners at our Brisbane office on July 13.
The event, hosted by Calibre, Jansen Powers and GeoImage, gave insights into how data and information relating to Urban Development is currently captured and used, and how this may change in the future.
Mark Edwards from Geoimage, speaking about harnessing emerging technology for spatial analysis and the opportunities that can be realised through access to improved satellite imagery and computer processing power;
Tony Evans from Jensen Bowers, talking about industries’ adaption of BIM and its current best practice, and how 3D imaging can be used in repurposing of existing buildings;
Mal McCann, Calibre Water and Environment Manager, speaking about the information currently available in the public domain and its value in assessing the feasibility of new land developments, with a focus on flooding and servicing.
Presentations were followed by a series of questions from the floor, which highlighted that the pace of technology has shown a need for industries to remain on the front foot.
For any town planning, surveying or engineering advice, and further information on how emerging technologies can help your next project, please contact Mal McCann.
