ESRI Australia partners SSSI
Two heavyweights of Australia’s $2.1 billion geospatial industry have joined forces in an industry-first partnership designed to expand spatial technology into new, ‘untapped’ markets.
GIS specialists, Esri Australia, and the nation’s peak spatial professionals body, the Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI), announced the alliance at the International Surveying and Spatial Sciences Conference (SSSC) in New Zealand last week.
The move follows a record year of growth for the spatial industry, which saw GIS technology play a vital role in emergency response during the Queensland flood and cyclone disasters; underpin think tank forums for the Committee for Economic Development (CEDA); and expand its footprint in sectors such as insurance, utilities, mining and resources.
