Webinar series

Over the next year, the RSP committee will organise several webinars. The webinar series will cover topics about spatial technologies and its benefits to the Australian and international communities. The webinar series does not aim to provide CPD for licensing and certification requirements but to promote our profession.

The first webinar on 29 April will be given by Dr Charity Mundava (WaterNSW, SSSI RSP), Amy Steiger (Cardno) and Associate Professor In-Young Yeo (University of Newcastle) about Remote sensing for bushfire preparedness and response. This webinar is in collaboration with the Hunter Environment Institute.

Climate Change and Disaster Management (CCDM) - Technology and Resilience in a Troubled World 

While many national and international conference this year are cancelled or moved to 2021, CCDM will go ahead as planned. The CCDM conference is scheduled to take place from 30 November 2020 – 4 December 2020 at UNSW in Sydney. 

CCCM will consist of three conferences focusing on different aspects of Climate Change and Disaster Management. The conferences are:

  • Geographic Information for Disaster Management (GI4DM)
  • NSW Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI) one day conference 
  • Urban Resilience Asia Pacific 2 (URAP2)

We are happy to also confirm our first two keynote speakers - Susan L. Cutter, Carolina Distinguished Professor and Director Hazards and Vulnerability Research Institute University of South Carolina and Orhan Altan, Professor at Istanbul Technical University Department of Geomatics, Istanbul – Turkey. 

We are optimistic that most of the travel restrictions will be lifted by then. However, in order to make sure that anyone around the globe can participate, we will be offering online streaming of the sessions.
