Ever heard the name Roger Tomlinson? Unless you have been steeped in the world of geospatial science for some time, the chances are you have not. You may be interested to learn that he is the man many refer to as the father of geographic information systems (GIS).
We’re living through a unique and trying time. The novel coronavirus COVID-19 has swept across the globe, and each nation is approaching the complexities it presents differently.
Look for evidence of water use in a traditional urban, suburban, and agricultural region of Queensland. Compare with a country in South East Asia or Africa.
Mapping the votes of a nation
With the calling of the Australian Federal Election for the Coalition on May 18th, one of the most monumental events of Australia’s 2019 has now been and gone.
The gist of GIS
It’s one of the most fundamental tools in the geospatial scientists’ arsenal – and it has had a fascinating history.
As one begins to learn more and more about the fascinating profession of geospatial science, it quickly becomes clear that the best resource one can draw on is the expertise of those that have been working in the field for years.
Drawing up a new map
Spreading the word about surveying and spatial studies at a school level can sometimes be difficult, but one Queensland group is busy introducing school students to drone and modern mapping technology.
A spatial achievement
Like any other professional field, the geospatial industry likes to recognise excellence, and that’s just what happened at the recent 2018 Asia-Pacific Spatial Excellence – Queensland Awards.
Queensland school students with an interest in maths, geography, IT and design can now find out if geospatial science holds a future study path for them.
To boldly go
Geospatial science doesn’t just let us know more about the world around us – it’s taking us up high above it too!
