Vale Dr Peter Woodgate

January 9, 2023

We are devastated by the recent passing of our President, Dr Peter Woodgate. The Geospatial Council of Australia’s Board of Directors and staff will miss Peter’s vision, calm and thoughtful leadership, and his endless commitment to championing the Geospatial and Space industries.

Peter was the epitome of a true gentleman. He brought experience, knowledge and expertise along with a wealth of governance experience which was so valuable during those initial months as the Geospatial Council was being formed.  

Peter will be remembered for the respect he showed to each person, the values that informed every decision and the tireless work and passion he committed to his various roles. Peter was always respectful, considered and never short of valuable thoughts and well considered ideas. He was a leader, mentor and friend to many in our industry and will be sorely missed by many.  

Our deepest sympathies go to Janet and his family during this difficult time. Our industry has lost a truly extraordinary person.
