Project Manager: Visualisation Software Development and Implementation
The CRCSI is seeking an experienced Project Manager to coordinate the development and implementation of Geovisualisation software.
The CRCSI has conducted research into analysis and visualisation tools to disseminate and translate spatial and spatio-temporal health information to professionals within the health sector. A software tool known as HealthTracks has been developed, which consists of an epidemiological reporting module and a mapping module.
The evolution of HealthTracks has seen the development of a new software suite ‘Epiphany’ which defines the processing and visualisation procedures and how they can be linked together to provide a visualisation solution to satisfy a particular query. Embedded within the tool is software that automates privacy on each processing and visualisation module as well as on the overall query results.
There are currently a number of Government agencies and CRCSI participant companies who wish to conduct limited trials of Epiphany within new and existing clients. Accordingly, the CRCSI is embarking upon a series of staged engagement and demonstration activities to explore these opportunities and suitably position Epiphany for commercialisation and technology transfer into the future and beyond its current deployment at WA Department of Health.
To assist with these activities, the CRCSI is seeking to appoint a Project Manager to oversee trial roll out of feature limited production code into client sites.

Research Assistant for CRC-SI Project 1.02 - School of Civil & Environmental Engineering, University of NSW
In the future, full exploitation of GNSS technology for high accuracy positioning applications in Australia and New Zealand will rely on the successful implementation of a next generation geodetic datum.
Changing from a geocentric datum primarily defined in terms of passive ground marks, and the periodic simultaneous adjustment of mostly terrestrial observations, to a modern geometric datum that is dependent on processes and technologies to accurately monitor its relationship to the global International Terrestrial Reference System (ITRS), is a paradigm shift in national geodesy. There are many issues that need to be resolved before such an ambitious goal is met. Some of them are administrative, procedural and policy related. Others have an applied research component.
This is a ONE YEAR appointment to undertake a series of tasks. The research assistant will be work closely with partners in the Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information, including several state government lands/spatial agencies, Geoscience Australia, and Land Information New Zealand.
