The Toronto GoGeomatics November Social is taking place November 6th, and we’ve got a great speaker lined up for the evening.

We will at the Fox & Fiddle Pub (280 Bloor St. W) in downtown Toronto at 7pm

Andrew Goodwin, Environmental Engineer at Umwelt (Australia) will be sharing his 15 years of experience processing LiDAR for large scale environmental projects. In this presentation, he will give an overview of some of the various applications of point cloud data, including environmental modelling, visual assessment, vegetation analysis, and infrastructure assessment.

Andrew will also discuss some novel applications, such as the development of a customized survey system that uses remotely sensed data to map the distribution of an endangered species of bird in Western Australia. He will also address some of the challenges associated with the storage and processing of large spatial datasets using distributed computing systems.

Andrew Goodwin is a passionate and innovative engineer with a solid background in environmental and numerical modelling. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Engineering from the University of Newcastle, and has over 15 years’ experience developing spatial solutions for Umwelt (Australia) Pty Limited.

In 2009, Andrew spearheaded the development and application of prototype distributed computing solution for point cloud classification and feature extraction called Anditi. Through a continued focus on optimization and scalability, Anditi is now being applied to solve a wide range of data processing challenges beyond spatial data.

GoGeomatics socials are always free, and always fun. It’s a casual way to meet new people and get together with old friends, network with fellow geomatics professionals, and learn about what’s going on in the industry. Join our Meetup group to stay up-to-date with our monthly social calendar!
