Friday 11 August, 2017 saw the 17th annual Spatial Information Day, and the Asia-Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards of South Australia (APSEA-SA) Dinner.

This year, we met at the Adelaide Convention Centre to learn the latest applications, theories and techniques being applied in surveying, remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS). In addition, we welcomed our new partner Build SA, the industry body for Building Information Modelling (BIM).

Spatial Information Day 2017 was our most successful SID to date, with over 500 delegates, 43 speakers, 15 exhibitors and 21 event sponsors.

Sincere thanks again to all our sponsors, presenters and delegates - we couldn't do it without you!


Thank you to everyone who nominated, and congratulations to all the winners for APSEA-SA 2017.
