Southland District Council Case Study to Feature at 2012 ALGIM GIS Symposium

Wednesday 22 February 2012

2012 ALGIM GIS Symposium 2 & 3 April 2012

James Cook Hotel Grand Chancellor, Wellington


Mark Day (Manager – Property & Spatial, Information Management Department at Southland District Council) will present at the 2012 ALGIM GIS Symposium. With 35 years experience in the field of GIS, Mark has a background in survey draughting, which provided the foundation for spatial mapping and cartography.

The power of the GIS as an analysis tool is only limited by your imagination, believes Mark. The ability to generate multiple spatial scenarios from corporate data sets that depict solutions to real world issues is where the GIS provides huge benefits to decision makers.

So when Mark and his team at the Southland District Council were asked to undertake a simple task within a major project at the Council, his team evolved a key tool that was used to assess the value of productivity flowing through a roading network to a destination.

 In times when funding for resources are becoming limited and efficiencies must be made, this model can be used to look at different scenarios that will make the best use of available resources.

Ensure you do not miss out on Mark’s presentation, GIS and Strategic Planning at the 2012 ALGIM GIS Symposium.
