Open House events:

Nova Systems: Introducing Nova Systems: Geospatial (formerly Geoplex)
The team at Nova Systems is all geo, all the time. Hear from Dani Bramante on Nova Systems Geospatial Overview, Sam Le May on Calculating Bushfire Attack Levels and Joe O’Connell on Plugging in to DTV.

NGIS: The role of Geospatial in achieving Global Social and Environmental Sustainability Outcomes with Google Earth Engine
Following a welcome from the NGIS Team, Ken Gillan, General Manager NGIS Victoria and Geoffrey Pryor, Customer Success Manager for Lively, will introduce the Google partnership and Geo ecosystem. Chris Goodman, Senior Software Engineer, will then provide a demonstration of the Google Cloud Platform including Google Earth Engine and AI/ ML capabilities. Damien O’Grady, Principal Scientist for EO and Peter Corlett, Solution Engineer will then share a few use case examples, before Winyama’s Kelsey Bonds, Community Engagement Manager, will then share details on the Indigenous Mapping Workshop, planned for Melbourne in 2023. 

RMIT: Spatial Digital Twins
Where in the universe do you find the twins that are digital? Come see a range of digital posters showcasing RMIT’s digital twin related research ranging from data collection, visualisation to decision making, with the highlight being the launch of the RMIT Metaverse.

1. RMIT Metaverse 1.0: linking GIS with gaming
2. iGEE: cloud GIS app for heat vulnerability assessment
3. Satellite positioning and navigation
4. Space and spatial for climate risk and early warning systems
5. A workflow system for environmental modelling
6. Digital twin frameworks – a solution for over-height vehicle routing

Spatial Vision: Spatial Showcase
Join the team at Spatial Vision for a double bill on all things spatial. Kicking off with a demonstration of custom tools from Ryanne Firme (DCM Production Manager) on the Digital Cadastre Modernisation project, Rhainnan Mundana (Senior Spatial Geospatial Analyst) will have you planning your next career moves with their presentation on Spatial Vision’s Cadetship and Mentoring Program.   

State Library Victoria: Treasures from the Maps Collection
National Treasure meets the State Library. Who needs Nicolas Cage when you have Senior Librarian Sarah Ryan? Join Sarah on a curated viewing of selected maps representing the diversity of the State Library Maps Collection.

Please arrive on time, as Sarah our librarian will be meeting us in the foyer. This tour is capped at 20 people but there is the Handmade Universe exhibit which is concurrently on. 

SSSI: What is spatial and why is it special?
Launching our World GIS Day celebrations is Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute. Join SSSI as they revel in all things spatial and deep dive into why they think it’s so very special. 

SSSI are so pleased to be able to showcase a number of wonderful members at this event, who will be presenting their passion and how they inspire the world with GIS!

University of Melbourne: Cultural Heritage, Communities and Digital Infrastructure Engineering
How do modern digital geospatial technologies affect cultural heritage documentation? How do community dynamics interact in geospatial open source? What on earth is a digital twin? Come and explore these nuanced questions.

Urbis: Shaping cities through spatial
Get in shape Melbourne! Danielle Cherubin, Christine Brooks & Josh Grover will be showing us how the spatial team at Urbis helps shapes cities and provide insights through human movement data, and 3D.

Veris: Surveying and GIS Together as One!
Come get ‘Verified’ with us. We’re hosting a surveying and spatial circus! Come to the big tent and wherever you find some balloons we’ll be demonstrating our award-winning projects including the Paradise Gorge Digital Twin, the Robe Coastline Capture, the City of Hobart Rivulet Digital Twin, the sightlines for the Shrine of Remembrance and the outputs from our 3D Ground Penetrating Radar! Plus we’ll be demonstrating the latest in our field equipment (that hasn’t been taken out for the day), we have scanners, drones with autonomous LiDAR capture, high-spec MLS and the 3D GPR to name a few! Come tame your spatial lion at the Veris Tent!

GeoRabble speakers:

Oliver Trembearth 

Digital twin frameworks – a solution for over-height vehicle routing? 
The Victorian road freight industry is faced with over-height incidents every year, prompting transportation agencies to seek geospatial solutions. In this talk, we will look at how visualising road objects in a digital twin shows promise as an alternative safety management strategy. 

Jack Barrett

Cool Routes
Stay Cool in Melbourne this summer. Jack will take you on a journey through the streets of Melbourne to explore the Urban Heat Island effect and how the data captured can be used for future planning considerations of our amazing city.

Danielle Cherubin

Human Movement Data is just so damn interesting!
We’ll look at some neat examples of how HMD can be used; not only in a retail setting, but also looking at how nature can have an impact on our movements and behaviour. Let the visuals speak for themselves in what will be a captivating demonstration.

Simon Jackson

Exploring Dial before you dig data

More to be announced soon.

Shout out to our sponsor Nova Systems, we couldn’t host our evening GeoRabble Melbourne event without you!
