GRI’s Envision Scenario Planner is NZSEA finalist

Finalists for the 2018 New Zealand Spatial Excellence Awards have been announced today.
“This year’s entrants have continued to deliver world class examples of how using geospatial technology is delivering tangible benefits and increasing productivity for a diverse range of businesses, communities, local and central governments.”

Included in the list of finalists is the exciting Envision Scenario Planner (ESP),  a geospatial tool for socio-economic and environmental assessment & modelling for urban regeneration of neighbourhoods. This has been nominated in the Environment & Sustainability Category.  Also nominated are the GRI’s own Simon Kingham, Kat Salm and intern Will Jones. All finalists were announced at a Breakfast held at the Wellington Club this morning. The event provided a forum for industry professionals and suppliers to network and play a leading role in the fast-growing spatial industry.
