TASSIC Forum – Harnessing the power of spatial analytics

TASSIC is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a forum on “Harnessing the power of spatial analytics” on Wednesday, 24 October 2018.

In 2012, TASSIC commissioned an economic study that found that the use of spatial information services such as geographic information systems, satellite and aerial imagery and satellite positioning services had delivered economic benefits of $104 million to the Tasmanian economy in 2011. Evidence suggests that this has grown considerably since that time. 

Spatial data analytics is emerging as the next paradigm in the use of spatial data. It has applications in almost every sector of the economy and in many government services.

The purpose of the forum is to provide people from government and business with the latest information on the growing use of spatial analytics and how it can improve productivity. The forum will include examples from overseas as well as from government and industry in Tasmania. The program will include information on recent research in data analytics.

This will be one of the most significant events in the TASSIC program of industry forums that will be rolled out over the coming years.
