CRCSI Annual Report highlights spatial research achievements

SHARE

Australia: The CRC for Spatial Information, or CRCSI, which is a joint venture of government, academic and private sector organizations using spatial technologies to solve complex problems of national significance, has released a report called ‘Year in Summary 2014-15’, highlighting the achievements of the CRCSI over the last 12 months. The report includes seven research achievements for 2014-15 that have resulted or will result in considerable commercial and societal impact. These projects are as follows:

  1. Real-time position will enable 24 hour positioning accuracy
  2. First response mapping allows coastal communities to understand and prepare for sea level rise
  3. The Spatial Hub provides farmers with better tools to increase profitability know-how and reduce the cost of capital borrowings
  4. Handheld sensors determining biomass have already seen farmers reduce the cost of farm inputs such as supplementary feeding and fertilizer
  5. Spatial tools that build sustainable suburbs have achieved recommendations by government planners to make policy changes to create better places to live
  6. Canterbury (NZ) recovery has led to better preparedness for recovery health services
  7. Earth changes to land boundaries means councils can more readily reorganize land ownership and boundaries after earthquake displacements.
