CANBERRA, Wednesday 7 March 2018: The European Association of Remote Sensing Companies (EARSC) and the Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information (CRCSI) through Spatial Information Systems Research Ltd (SISR), signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). Representatives from the EARSC member companies AIRBUS, e-geos, Earth-i, Geospatial Enabling Technologies, GMV, Planet, and Sinergise attended the ceremony.
Are you looking for new funding opportunities? Do you want to build new relationships with leading remote sensing companies from Australia and the European Union? That's good. Because we are hosting the European Remote Sensing Industry Mission to Australia, where you can do both!
In October, the CRCSI together with the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C) and the Australian Institute for Health & Welfare (AIHW) convened a Roundtable discussion to explore the challenges and actions outlined in a recently released paper, Location Matters – realising the value of people centred spatial information to inform policy. The Roundtable brought policy and spatial data experts together to determine how best spatial expertise can be accessed to meet the needs of policy development. Participants from the Roundtable worked together to modify and prioritise the actions highlighted in the report.
Satellites orbiting more than 20,000km above the earth’s surface are now trying to locate and record what lies beneath in a new trans-Tasman initiative spearheaded by Christchurch geospatial technology company Orbica.
Workshops are being held to showcase applications of the Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS) positioning service in Sydney on 6 February 2018 and in Melbourne on 8 February 2018 under the Memorandum of Co-operation between the Ministry of the Economy Trade and Industry (METI Japan) and the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science (DIIS).
Cancer Council Queensland and the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare have teamed up with us and our partner Queensland University of Technology to develop the first Australian Cancer Atlas.
The Australian Cancer Atlas will deliver a freely accessible, interactive, online platform to show Australians how cancer varies depending on where they live.
It will provide a comprehensive national picture of how cancer screening, diagnosis and survival varies across the country across small geographical areas. It will include estimates for up to 20 different cancer types, making it possible to identify key geographical differences in cancer diagnosis and outcomes.
The expected launch date of the Atlas is July 2018. Until then, the team has developed an Australian Cancer Atlas Newsletter to keep you informed on the progress of this exciting project.
If you would like to receive further updates on the Atlas, please subscribe to the newsletter here.
If you have any other questions or feedback please get in touch with project leads.
