HERE Breakfast Briefing
9:00am-9.10am Welcome & Overview
Maurits van der Vlugt, Director, Location Solutions, Mercury Project Solutions
Zaffar Sadiq Mohamed Ghouse, Chair, SSSI
9:10am-9:40am Reality, virtual and otherwise: mapping the smarter city
Colin Fairweather, Chief Information Officer, City of Melbourne
Colin will talk about some of the exciting mapping and modelling undertaken by the City Of Melbourne and, in the context of work
that the city has sponsored around accessibility, open data and sustainability, speculate on the impact on the citizen in a 'smart' city.
9:40am-10:10am Redistributing the future -- learning from disasters and technology trends to drive smart urban growth
Julian Carver, Venture Partner, NZ Capital Strategies
When your city is devastated you get to look at things differently. Try demolishing 80% of your CBD, repairing 90% of the
houses, 30% of the sewer system and 50% of the roads, relocating thousands of people, and rebuilding a whole city while it's
still being used. There's lots of moving parts and they all affect each other. You need to know where everything is, and how they
relate. You start seeing a city as a system.
Fixed and mobile sensors, federated data infrastructure, analytical models and visualization tools all help. And they apply just
as much in peacetime, to cities facing regular urban growth. How is this knowledge supporting other cities in NZ and Australia?
How will rapidly accelerating global developments in sensors, smart cities, intelligent transport networks, and big data analytics
change what's possible. Where will this take us next?
10:10am-10:40am Addressing the world in 3 words
Steven Ramage, Director of Strategy, what3words
Co-ordinate systems are great for computers but unusable for human beings. Street addressing is inadequate in a lot of the
world and sometimes non-existent. what3words is a human-friendly way of presenting and communicating a lat/long, and can
act as a human interface for precise location -- globally.With a unique 3 word "address" assigned to each of the globe's 57 trillion
3m x 3m squares, what3words brings simplicity and ease of communication to an area normally associated solely with geo
professionals. Powered by a tiny algorithm, what3words works in a series of languages, offline as well as online and has an array
of use cases.
10:10am-10:40am MORNING TEA
Talking cars, smart cities -- what's next?
Professor Mark Stevenson, Epidemiologist and
Professor of Urban Transport and Public Health
at the University of Melbourne
Amid the array of significant challenges faced by the
transport system in the future, the rapid development in
information and communication technologies applied to
transport is likely to provide the next generation of safety,
productivity and efficiency gains. Already new technologies
in the Australian vehicle market are providing higher levels
of primary safety by reducing the potential for crashes.
Extending these technologies to those that rely on open
source wireless technology called Dedicated Short-
Range Communications (DSRC) whereby vehicles will
be capable of communicating with surrounding vehicles
(vehicle to vehicle) and the road infrastructure (vehicle
to infrastructure) will provide an opportunity to deliver
efficiencies in the transport system that are needed to
meet the growing demand. This presentation will focus
on DSRC and other recent technologies in Australia and
highlight what location data could provide in the smart
cities of the future.
VicRoads open data journey
Hossein Parsa, TL Spatial Systems
This is the story of VicRoads journey towards truly open
spatial data. VicRoads has come a long way in the past
ICSM's vision beyond Cadastre 2034
Mike Burdett, Surveyor-General of South
Australia, Department of Planning, Transport
and Infrastructure (DPTI)
At Locate 2015, ICSM launched its 20 year strategy for the
cadastre titled, "Cadastre 2034- Powering Land and Real
. This was the result of twelve months work and
months of consultation with industry. The strategy sets out
a vision for the year 2034 and follows with goals, objectives
and a series of actions needed to ensure the cadastre
remains able to service this vision. This presentation will
review the strategy and look at the work plans of ICSM
aimed at achieving the goals set out in the strategy.
