Build: Dr Walter Hesse, we-do-IT

Abstract Title:  Integrating GIS with SAP-ERP Mobility

Dr Walter HesseGIS are crucial for utility/telco network Data Quality Assurance of Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) information maintained traditionally in a-spatial form, for example in SAP-ERP Enterprise Resource Planning applications like office bound Plant Maintenance (PM), Multi-Resource-Scheduling (MRS) and the offline WorkManager modules.

Recently we-do-IT® completed a very large ERP Mobility project at AusNet Services successfully, by enabling 2,500+ in-house staff and external contractors, setting a new global innovative benchmark of GIS/SAP integration and scale-ability for both office and remote workers.  READ MORE

Prosper: Lukas Divis, MapData Services

Abstract Title: Indoor Positioning and Mapping of High Value Assets

Lukas DivisThroughout the world, organisations with vast fleets of mobile or portable assets such as equipment and machinery are turning to location technology to better manage the property within their premises.

Abstract Title:  Using Maps to Successfully Display Complex Bushfire Behaviour Attributes in Victoria

Frazer Wilson Bushfire information is most useful when it can be communicated to land managers and practitioners. The Department of Land, Environment, Water and Planning (DELWP) has developed Bushfire Risk Profile reporting for municipalities to pull together information derived form complex bushfire modelling for the first time.

It’s success required the science to be easily communicated, easily understood and available for land managers decision making.  READ MORE

Sustain: David Simon, Geoscience Australia

Abstract Title:  Big Data Capture – A LIDAR perspective

David SimonCollecting big data that are measured in the size of terabytes is a challenging and time consuming task. Geoscience Australia has worked on capturing flood plain LIDAR over key river areas in the Murray Darling Basin over the last 3 years.

The survey areas were the largest attempted in Australia and with this brought challenges and issues not seen in the smaller scale capture work undertaken by Geoscience Australia and commercial LIDAR Suppliers within Australia.

We look forward to welcoming industry professionals, researchers and students to #Locate16 12-14 April at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
