Well done to our team members who will be presenting at the New Zealand Esri User Conference (NZEUC) to be held in Auckland from 20-22 August 2018.
Ella Mroczek (Spatial Adviser at our Auckland office) recently had the pleasure of organising a Women in Spatial (NZ) breakfast event. The event was focused on professional development and leadership with talks by Natalie Scott and Renata Porter. Natalie is a Principal Spatial Adviser at Abley and Renata is Director of Business and Information Systems at Auckland UniServices.
Ruby started her career at Abley in November 2013 after completing her Bachelor of Engineering at Auckland University. She spent a year in the Christchurch office before joining Courtney and Colin at our Auckland office at its launch in September 2014. After working there for a year, Ruby went to the Technical University of Munich for two years to do a Master of Science in Transportation Systems. While she was there, she worked as a Research Assistant assisting the development and application of an Integrated Land-Use and Transport Model for the Munich Metropolitan Area. Ruby returns as a Transportation Engineer based at our Auckland office and is specifically experienced in development planning, local and regional planning, as well as transport and land use modelling.
The power of interactive webmaps is now well established. We provide clients with effective answers from complex data, presented in a visually appealing way. Our specifically designed custom widgets allow for the data to be explored, queried, and analysed. But what if clients want to dig a little deeper?
For a long while the Esri and Autodesk camps have circled each other, perhaps not sure if they are friends or enemies, but now in perhaps the greatest crossover since the Avengers Infinity Wars, Autodesk and Esri have put aside their rivalries to combat the common enemy Thanos, sorry I mean Open Source.
The Government Policy Statement 2018/19 for Land Transport has identified road safety as a key strategic priority, to reflect an increased ambition for delivering a land transport system free of death and serious injury. There is support to develop a new road safety strategy and action plan over the next 12-18 months and the Government is currently considering whether the ‘Vision Zero’ framework should be applied in New Zealand.
If you are an Esri user, you will know that there are a lot of products to choose from. Esri lists 29 apps on their website, these apps are integrated with the wider Esri product suite and often can be accessed as part of an ArcGIS Online subscription. This blog summarises the functionality of 11 popular Esri apps.
The recent news coverage of the Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) agency’s recently released Prosperity Index has generated significant discussion. The index measures prosperity across Auckland at the local board level and identifies how prosperity, as measured across a range of indicators, varies across Auckland.
The recently issued GPS on Land Transport identifies accelerated implementation of the Speed Management Guide as a key strategy for reducing death and serious injury on our roads. This priority draws on a substantial evidence that proves small reductions in travelling speed can generate large reductions in crashes, both by number and severity of outcome. Having speed management at the core of a forgiving road transport system seems inherently sensible; yet there remains considerable public resistance to proposals that reduce speed limits.
