Spatial Futures Forum 2019


You are cordially invited to hear and interact with some of Australia’s leading thinkers on the future of transport, logistics, parking, intelligent cities and regional interconnections, as well as the important role of spatial systems and modelling in these developments.

Speakers from State and local government as well as specialists and academics, will talk on the challenges and solutions for designers of modern cities, addressing issues such as: urban and regional transport; parking; office and home delivery services; and ‘twinning’ and interactive 3-D modelling, for planning and allocation of public and private resources.

Mr Bruce Thompson Executive Director, NSW Spatial Services Division will also brief us on the “Spatial Digital Twin”, a digital work bench for intelligent cities and transport.


We will share knowledge and understanding of the issues facing regions and cities in the future with experts in: geospatial science and modelling; the changing role of policing and emergency services; the development of new technologies; and how new expectations will shape the future.

The workshop will provide an opportunity to hold conversations on ideas, needs and priorities of industry, government and researchers as well as to meet new and like-minded people from a diversity of fields.
