About Us

Location Matters is a podcast devoted to the map and to the GIS industry. We discuss anything that has to do with data, mapping software, industry trends and best practices. Our aim is to give you something interesting to talk about when you get to the office or to spark some interest in how a map could help you make informed decisions.

Remote sensing education includes everyone

From primary to high school and at a tertiary education level, Dr Karen Joyce is empowering students to make decisions about the environment around them using remote sensing tools and techniques. We're excited to have guest speaker, Dr Karen Joyce on this episode of Location Matters to cover how her career evolved into becoming a senior lecturer in remote sensing at James Cook University and her work in forming the SheMaps initiative, encouraging young girls to get excited about STEM subjects.

LM 39: Digital experience enhancement with indoor mapping

Traditionally, maps have been used as an outdoor navigation tool to help guide you from point A to B. MapsPeople have changed the game by enabling people to have outdoor through to indoor navigation. But what about security concerns? How do we implement this in our organisation? How are other industries using this technology? We've got you covered in today's episode with guest speakers, Liveli's General Manager, Oliver Looker and MapsPeople's Regional Sales Manager, Christian Müggler.

Building diversity in STEM-based careers

An equal world is an enabled world and technology is a means for enabling change in the world. On today's Location Matters podcast we're diving into why diversity in the workplace is important, how organisations can encourage a diverse representation and what steps need to be put in place to inspire young women to take up STEM-based careers. Today on the show, we have three GIS analysts joining us - Usha Johnston from NGIS, Merindah Bairnfather-Scott from Winyama and Nat Raisenbeck-Brown from CSIRO.

Mapping ethics in times of crisis

With the recent Australian bushfires and Corona Virus covered in a lot of global media outlets, maps are becoming a frequently used tool to communicate the impact of such events however, there are maps being shared that are either factually incorrect or have features that may alarm people in non-alarming situations. On today's episode of Location Matters, we are joined by NGIS Consultant, Chris Hoar and Managing Director, Paul Farrell, to discuss what makes a map accurate and effective in these situations.

Storytelling with maps

Mapping is one opportunity to tell a story, however, with the data collected by social groups, community services, environmental groups and government agencies, there are many more opportunities to interpret data and visualise this for non-technical audiences and users. In this episode we're joined by Mel Flanagan, Founder of Nook Studios, a community of story-tellers and Dion Fleming, Liveli’s Senior Account Manager with a background in GIS, to discuss how stories can be imparted across different mediums

The impact of precision agriculture in Australia

Australian farmers are known for their resilience farming in the harsh Australian climate and more recently operating through devastating environmental conditions. In this episode of Location Matters, we invite the CEO of Decipher, Anthony Walker, Technical Product Manager at Decipher, Frank D'Emden and EO Data Science General Manager, Nathan Eaton to discuss the advancements in earth observation technologies and how this has enabled farmers to gain powerful insights for improving their crop yield.

Remote sensing for the resources industry

Remote sensing technology enables us to understand the environmental change over time and gain insights into the extent of deforestation or environmental impact of a mine from exploration through to rehabilitation. We're joined by Sam Atkinson, General Manager at EO Data Science and Krystle Dobson, Senior Account Executive for Resources at NGIS Australia. We cover the challenges faced used remote sensing, preventing tailings dams failures and how we see the resources industry evolving with cloud technology.

Geospatial technology for non-GIS people

One of the most common misconceptions in the world of location intelligence and geographic information systems is that you need to be an expert to use the tools of the trade. CARTO have enabled non-geospatial users to benefit from location intelligence in their day-to-day business operations. In this episode of Location Matters we're joined by Florence Broderick, Vice President of Marketing at CARTO and Dion Fleming, Senior Account Manager and Liveli's team lead.
