In this seminar, Peter Shaw will be giving an overview of areas of interest at Trimble, particularly, their ongoing pursuit of increased accuracy, reliability, and efficiency in positioning techniques (including mitigation against space weather/ionospheric effects) and the application of AI to Geospatial problems.
Planet (a public benefit corporation) is imaging the land surface of the Earth on a near-daily basis, with multispectral sensors at ~3.7m per pixel we operate the largest fleet of earth observation satellites in history with a constellation of 19 high-resolution SkySats, capable of 0.5m multispectral imaging. e change, terrestrial an aquatic ecosystems, wildlife biology and agriculture.

In Antarctica emperor penguins are the species most at risk from climate change. Up until a decade ago our understanding of the species was hindered by the logistical challenges of studying a species which lives in one of the harshest places on earth. But since then advances in our use of satellite imagery has enabled us to find, count and monitor the birds, transforming it from one of the least studied species in Antarctica to one of the best.
Reliable supply of safe drinking water is vital for human health. Despite this, there is no consistent nationwide spatial dataset of water distribution zones (WDZ) for Aotearoa New Zealand (A-NZ). In this talk, we will outline the development of a nationwide geospatial dataset of WDZ using data compiled from the 67 district and city councils in A-NZ. We will also outline several early use cases for the WDZ dataset.
Call for papers for the 2023 regular NZPR Issue and the special issue on geo-spatial techniques in population research.
