GIS Specialist / Administrator — RMS, Pacific Highway Office Grafton (October 2016 - current)
- Assisted the biodiversity offset project team for the Woolgoolga to Ballina upgrade project by capturing spatial data in the field, preparing report figures, GIS analysis, validating spatial data delivered by contractors, and developing specifications for the delivery of spatial data specific to the biodiversity offsets program and relevant legislation.
- Finalist in the Transport Cluster Awards 2017 for my role in the Pacific Highway Biodiversity Offset Team in recognition of outstanding performance and commitment to demonstrating Transport values.
- Developed web-based GIS for Grafton Bridge project team, enabling the whole team to visualize and utilize relevant project data.
GIS and Spatial Services Officer — Tamworth Regional Council Tamworth (October 2015 – October 2016)
- Assisted in the roll out of new Council browser based GIS interface, Geocortex.
- Developed complex spatial analysis scripts on ArcGIS Server such as water/sewer network valve and pipe segment isolation trace enabling water division staff to identify which valves must be closed to isolate a pipe segment or valve. A list of properties affected by the isolation could be saved to a format suitable for mail-outs. This simplified the process for water engineers to identify properties affected by planned works. It also enabled field staff to confirm which valves must be closed to isolate a section of the network for emergency works
- Proposed, developed and rolled out a new process for the capture of new water/sewer network assets for minor works. This process made use of Asset Officers existing AutoCAD skills allowing them to rapidly capture accurate location information, a simple interface assisted them to efficiently capture asset attribute information and then store this information in the asset management system and GIS database
Production Manager, Mapping — RPS Brisbane (July 2013 – October 2015)
- Developed a workflow that mapped Cypress trees through object orientated image segmentation and classification of multispectral imagery and LiDAR covering the Pilliga forest, over 3 000 km2 in area. Over 13 million White Cypress Trees were mapped as crown polygons with tree heights derived from LiDAR. This information is used by Forest Corporation of New South Wales for inventory assessment and forest management
- Worked with Tweed Shire Council GIS officers and Catchment Management team to map riparian vegetation for assessing risks to water quality in the Tweed River drinking water catchment
- Designed and implemented quality assurance methodology for LiDAR and derived products for $1.9M Murray River Floodplain project. Greatly increased the acceptance rate through Geoscience Australia’s stringent validation and testing. achieving the first ever “first time acceptance” of a LiDAR project to the ICSM specification for any provider. Project deliverables included ANZLIC and NEDF compliant metadata generated using ANZMET Lite tools
Spatial Analyst — Terranean Mapping Technologies / RPS Sydney (September 2006 – July 2013)
- Project managed mapping of over 1600 river reaches as part of the Murray-Darling Basin Sustainable Rivers Audit which fed into the Murray Darling Basin Plan. The project was expanded from software development and mapping 70 reaches to the complete 1600 sites after the client review the first 70 reaches. To complete this I developed software tools for semi-automatically extracting top and bottom bank lines and over 50 measurements for each reach. Additional staff were hired to undertake the expanded project.
- Assisted Ecologists from to map key linkages at a property level within state defined Bioregional Corridors in the Gold Coast City Council LGA. Native vegetation corridors were identified and ranked in terms of current level of conservation protection. Individual parcels were ranked based on biophysical measures such as biodiversity as well as risk factors related to existing protection measures.
- Contrast matched and mosaiced a 2.5m ALOS PRISM mosaic of Australia consisting of over 9000 scenes to form The Australian Geographic Reference Image distributed by Geoscience Australia.
- Georeferenced circa 1865 scanned building survey plans of Sydney city to current road casements and combined as a seamless mosaic. The digital image is now displayed in the Museum of Sydney.
