Congratulations to Hamish Kingsbury who has been selected as a finalist for the NZ Spatial Excellence Awards in the "Young Professional of the Year" category.
This year I had the opportunity to attend and present the work that I have been doing at North Canterbury Transport Infrastructure (NCTIR) at the New Zealand Esri User Conference 2018. Being the largest (around 600 professionals in attendance) GIS conference in New Zealand, I personally found the most valuable aspects of the conference were networking and hearing user stories on how GIS technologies are used to improve the way they conduct business.
Last week I attended the New Zealand Esri User Conference (NZEUC) at SkyCity in Auckland. This is NZ’s largest gathering of geospatial professionals and the event was well attended by public and private sector clients and industry professionals. Our Abley team members attending the conference this year were Chris Morris, Hamish Kingsbury, Subodh Dhakal and myself, who collectively presented seven times during the conference and Special Interest Groups.
I always enjoy the opportunity to learn from others in my industry and to present my latest work, and this year at the New Zealand Esri User Conference (NZEUC) was no exception. I like getting technical, diving deep into problems, and evaluating and developing a solution. I found that the NZEUC was somewhat missing this technical aspect, and I thought that if I was disappointed by the lack of it, then others may be as well. And it seemed I wasn't alone...with the room at full capacity, I delved into the intricacies of moving data between disconnected environments, automating the deletion and creation of services and extending the capabilities of the out-of-the-box ArcPy tools.
