Asia Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards - WA
The Western Australia Spatial Excellence Awards (WASEA) celebrates the achievements of top spatial information enterprises and showcases the finest projects that the Western Australia Spatial Industry has to offer. Projects and individuals attaining recognition at this premier event are deemed to be truly outstanding achievers and pre-eminent in their field.
WASEA provides a stepping stone for individuals to be nominated in the Asia-Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards (to be presented at the Locate 18 Conference) the only awards for the Asia Pacific region that recognise the excellent achievements of both individuals and organisations engaged in the spatial information industry in this region at a single event.
Previous years have seen an excellent standard of competition, with a diverse range of individuals nominated.
The WASEA are jointly hosted by the two organisations that created the concept and actively promote it: the Spatial Industries Business Association (SIBA) and the Surveying & Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI).
