The Locate conference 2016 accepted three abstracts from the RISER project for oral presentation. The talk titles are:
- “Using spatial technologies to support early education for improved community resilience — A case study from Anglesea Primary School” (Matt to present);
- “Using next generation spatial technologies to advance knowledge of grassland curing” (Mark to present); and
- “Real-time estimation of wildfire perimeters from curated crowdsourcing” (Peter to present).
The three presentations will be given at the Locate 2016 Conference on 12–14 April in Melbourne. In addition, as the winner of two Victorian Spatial Excellence Awards, the RISER project was nominated for the Asia Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards (APSEA). The winners of the APSEA awards will also be announced at the Locate 16 Conference.
