The Geoscience of Where

The following session of the Australian Geoscience Council Convention (AGCC 2018) to be held in Adelaide 14-18 October 2018 is likely to be of interest to member:

Session 4.4.2 The Geoscience of Where

The science of accurately measuring and understanding the temporal variation of the shape and orientation of the Earth and features on Earth, and the associated technologies used to understand the globe and creatively structure information according to location, are driving innovation and productivity across society. In the 21st century, new technologies and techniques allow us to measure Earth’s properties with unprecedented accuracy and precision, opening up new applications in this field. This session will include presentations on the science and applications of geodesy, including cutting edge developments in positioning and implementation of a dynamic datum; advances in the way Geospatial Information is spatially referenced to the Earth through discrete global gridding systems; and developments in geospatial and positioning infrastructures.
