eCPD - Webinar: Enhancing National Mapping – The Why and Where to

Date & Time

Wednesday, 15 Mar 2023
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm AEST

This is a recording of a live webinar held on 15 September 2021

This recorded webinar was a joint initiative of the SSSI Disaster Management & Recovery Special Interest Group & Spatial Information & Cartography Commission.

Many of the challenges Australia faces require a national perspective and combined course of action.  Experience has shown that nationwide maps are critical to managing cross-border emergency situations, environmental and national resource management, national security and climate change. These challenges can be resolved more efficiently through maps that show the link between a place, its people and their activities.  This webinar explored the need for enhanced national mapping and a Digital Atlas of Australia.

The speakers

This session featured presentations from:

  • Mary O'Kane from O'Kane Associates presenting on findings from the NSW Bushfire Enquiry, focussing on the need for improved geospatial information and technologies.
  • Jodie Mewett from the National Recovery and Resilience Agency talking about the difficulties in finding appropriate data for bushfire recovery
  • Simon Costello from Geoscience Australia discussing the proposed Digital Atlas of Australia.
