The 18th annual Spatial Information Day (SID) is taking place in Adelaide on Friday 25 October and we’ll be there.

SID is South Australia’s premier conference for the geospatial and surveying industry. Adelaide Convention Centre will be home to this year’s conference, exploring the latest applications, theories and techniques being applied in surveying, remote sensing and photogrammetry, BIM and Geographic Information Systems (GIS).

Rebecca De Cicco will take to the stage in the Smart Cities stream at 3.30pm, where she will deliver her talk on ‘A smart cities agenda and its impact on our built environment’.

Rebecca’s talk will explain the details of what encompasses a smart city, and how future cities will be driven by new technologies as the impacts of global population increases – ultimately changing how we live and work.

Rebecca said: “A smart city agenda acknowledges the impacts of BIM and Digital Engineering and the way accessible data can help us to utilise our cities and the services around them. Not only will this session explain the importance of a smart city, but how smart city standards have been developed to enable a consistent approach toward the way we design and build around them.”
