We are still a little off schedule due to the overbooking two months ago, so tomorrow we are talking about tips and tricks for managing your spatial data through the life-cycle of your project.
As you are working on the project, new copies of existing spatial data and new spatial data sets can just seem to create themselves. They can appear in all manner of places – often where you least expect them… 😮
All is not lost however!
There is a way out of this nightmare 😉
It does take a little ‘getting organised‘ and ‘stepping back‘ – hard to do when it feels like there are deadlines looming and so much work to be done 😦
Taking that breath and wrangling things back into your control is well worth the effort though!
And in this SALtech session we are going to talk about tips, tricks, and techniques that can help you to do this 🙂
Are you going to join us?
12pm Tues (Aug 1st) in the Map Library:

Hullo SALtech-ers 🙂
Tomorrow is the GISc Model Development discussion session!
When? 11am in the Map Library (11th July 2017)
So, no spatial software, no computering, just our brains, creativity and whatever you prefer to draw or make lists with. Bring your research problems and whatever works for you when it comes to brainstorming; pencil & paper, a tablet, a page from your mates notebook and a borrowed pen…
We will dicsuss some geospatial techniques you can use to get from:
And work out what happens in the middle BEFORE you get anywhere near a keyboard 😉
Latest update: 23rd June
The SALtech session for June has now been postponed.
A recurring meeting was been booked over the top of our regular booking by someone who is more senior than myself so I have been trying to work out a schedule around it.
As with many things geospatial, flexibility, patience and attention to detail will have to be our friends though as there is no simple solution to the scheduling situation. As things currently stand, the next few dates are likely to be:
These dates are not confirmed!
The other booking in the Map Library may disappear as suddenly as it appeared, or another may trump it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Keep an eye on the blog if you want to know what’s happening. An email will be sent out to SEES in the week before the next SALtech session for those who are members of the School.
In this month’s SALtech session we are going to get into all things “finding data” related.
The other big issue we will discuss is the difference between using a spatial data webservice and acquiring a digital copy of the data from the owner/custodian…
How do you work out which pathway is right for your research work?
Planning to join us in the Map Library at 12pmon Tuesday 2nd May?

Easily Create 3D-Printable Terrain Models
The tool uses a Google API to help you select your area of interest, so they aren’t joking about it being easy when it comes to finding the where for your model!
The rest of the interface is refreshingly straightforward too, providing heaps of options for customisation. Including three worldwide elevation models, hillshading options, and three export formats 🙂
I don’t have access to a 3D printer 😦
But! The image above is a model of Wollongong I created using TouchTerrain and the TouchTerrain for CAGEO viewing tool 😀
You can see one of Chris Harding’s models online here. There is more detailed elevation data available over the US, so US models are more detailed…
Before you run screaming from the topic of this month’s session, I will make you two promises, OK?
So, are you still with me?
Here we go, yes, the topic is…..
Datums, Coordinate Systems & Projections
12 pm Tuesday 4th April
Map Collection & Collaboration Room
What will we be talking about?
No maths 😉
