Queensland Spatial Industry Conference 2008
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the Queensland Spatial Conference 2008 (QSC2008), proudly hosted by the Spatial Sciences Institute, Queensland Region. The Conference will be held at the Holiday Inn Surfers Paradise from 17-19 July 2008.
The spatial sciences are changing rapidly and conferences such as this are vital to ensuring we keep up to date with these changes. The technical programme has been structured to provide quality education and development - and the social programme is one not to be missed!
The Conference theme of Global Warning: What’s Happening In Paradise? gives presenters scope to address the changes relevant to our industry. Surfers Paradise, like many other regions throughout Australia, is under stress from drought, intensive development, population increase, effects of sea level change and other factors associated with global warming/climate change. Like-minded professionals are contributing innovative spatial solutions to these and other challenges across the Asia Pacific Region, in areas of water resources, agriculture, land development, environmental management, emergency services, infrastructure, transport and marine biology.
As spatial professionals, we are employing leading edge technologies and methodologies in mapping, surveying, GIS, remote sensing and photogrammetry to address the impacts of climate change.
The QSC2008 is endorsed and supported by the Land Surveying Commission of SSI and is the premier surveying conference in 2008 for land surveyors.
