Geospatial data service consulting
With a deep insight into the open source geospatial community, OGC data services and web technologies, Spatialised can advise your organisation on delivering a spatial data infrastructure using open source software; and help you to build it. Open architectures not only help build and drive innovative (and profitable) business, they enable and empower diverse, strong, local communities. This is always a team effort, since no one human or organisation can know all the things. Let me help you design open systems, and pull together teams which are able to deliver both the technical and community-building components.
Operationalising research – ‘full stack’ science
With a deep background in developing and executing earth system observation projects, Spatialised can help you bring research ideas to life – from grant applications to production service delivery.
LiDAR and photogrammetry services
Airborne LiDAR and imagery were big data before big data were big. With a decade of experience in LiDAR processing, including 5 years planning and executing helicopter-based surveys of Antarctic sea ice, Spatialised can produce and get around dense 3D datasets with aplomb. With a track record of innovation on approaches to LiDAR processing and a powerful open source toolkit, we can make sense of your investment in 3D mapping.
Spatialised has CASA RPAS pilot certification for 25kg multirotor aircraft, including an Aviation Radio Operators Certificate. We currently operate Parrot ANAFI + ANAFI thermal RPA for small detailed projects.
Logistics, field support and project management
With four Antarctic expeditions running research group logistics under the belt and a track record of field innovation in sea ice research, I can help you design and execute field research programs which work. In Antarctic research, deadlines are hard and you can’t go down to the shop if you forget something. I can help you keep complex projects on track, managing multiple competing priorities and personalities.
Training and mentorship
Adam is part of the Women in Geospatial mentoring program, a certified Software Carpentry instructor, and experienced technical workshop builder/presenter.
Spatialised brings a hands-on ‘build up from the basics’ approach to skills development and training – using Python and command line GIS tools (eg. PDAL, GDAL, Generic Mapping Tools), interactive notebooks which encourage exploratory coding and analysis, and graphical applications like QGIS or CloudCompare.
Spatialised has developed and delivered training material the Australian National University; and for technical workshops delivered at international and regional FOSS4G conferences.
Board membership and advisory roles
I helped set up OSGeo Oceania, leading components of the FOSS4G SotM Oceania conference committee since the inaugural 2018 event. I’m a voting member of the Open Geospatial Foundation, with a role on the OSGeo marketing committee – and I’m a voting member of the Openstreetmap Foundation. I’m also former member of the Earth Observation Australia steering committee. This adds up to an experienced navigator of consensus with a strong focus on ethical business; digital, environmental and human rights; diversity and of course, ensuring that doing business is as fun as possible!
As an experienced guide and lifetime adventurer with a solid appreciation of how it feels to be under the hammer in day to day life, I appreciate any opportunities I have to re-wild myself. Wilderness immersion is a critical need for all humans – and can help your approach to business and all of life. I’m not ready to lead wilderness expeditions yet – I need to reacquire wilderness first responder certifications and appropriate insurances. However, I’m happy to come and talk to your business about why purposeful rewilding is important for us all. Actually, head over to toolsfortherevolution.com for more…
