Event description

Description

The use of spatial data and drones is rapidly increasing across academia and research resulting in the generation of high-resolution geospatial information. The deployment of these advanced technologies not only provide greater opportunities and enable innovation in research but also present equal challenges in data management, technological & computing capabilities, sensitivities and other ethical issues.

The Australian National Data Service, a federally funded NCRIS facility, is facilitating a workshop on drones & big spatial data which aim to bring together researchers and data specialists from various disciplines and agencies to showcase their expertise, knowledge and information exchange. This workshop consists of presentations, multiple hands-on tutorials, and also provides the participants with an opportunity for networking with leading spatial data experts.
