Hamish Kingsbury, Senior Spatial Data Specialist is presenting this work at the Esri Regional Conference in Christchurch on the 28th March. His presentation will run through the problems the GIS team at North Canterbury Transport Infrastructure Recovery Alliance (NCTIR) faced, and how they’ve used FME to work with the ArcGIS REST API.
Friday 8th March was International Women’s Day. It was great to see so many positive messages across social media and news channels in support of women all over the world. This year, the theme was #BalanceforBetter so I decided to take the opportunity to reflect on my first year working in an industry that’s tackling a serious gender imbalance.
This week I was lucky enough to attend the annual EngNZ Transportation Group conference - always one of the highlights of my year. This year's theme, "The Changing Face of Transport", was particularly relevant. Not only in the context of Central Government change, and the associated policy changes that fall out of that, but in the changes we are seeing globally around drivers for transport investment and the form in which transport infrastructure is being delivered.

Abley Auckland staff and 26,000 other Aucklanders participated in the annual Ports of Auckland Round the Bays on March 3, 2019. The run was an 8.4km race along Auckland’s scenic waterfront and the very fine weather made for an excellent morning of running. The hot weather and large crowd were some challenges facing Abley’s ten runners, but all finished the course in competitive times.
