Working with the Spatial
Information Research Centre and its staff
- Developed a location identification system for spatially locating
and identifying housing units without using addresses.
Designed Spatial Data Collection and GIS Analysis
Plan for the First Secretary of the Ministry for Women and Children,
Republic of Indonesia.
- With two colleagues, proposed, designed and created a Prototype Spatial Information System
for the Dunedin Botanic Gardens. The objective of creating
the Spatial Information System was to provide the Gardens with an
intuitive and efficient way of storing, querying and viewing data
associated with important attributes of their plant collections.
Highlights of the project included historical querying capabilities to
visualize where plants, garden beds, monuments and other assets had been
located throughout the long history of the gardens including 3D fly-throughs.
