NZ Spatial Excellence Awards Results 2015

Spatial Excellence Showcased at 2015 NZSEA Awards Dinner

20.11.2015

 

SIBA congratulates all the finalists and winners of the New Zealand Spatial Excellence Awards 2015. Their work was inspirational. Their entries showcased the successes of the use of spatial technology, how it unlocks the value held within the data and more importantly the differential competitive edge that spatial technology brings to the outcomes.

This year, the popular NZSEA finalists presentation session was held on the afternoon of 19 November where finalists presented on their submission, giving attendees an insight into their excellent work.   The award ceremony was held at Te Papa in the evening of 19 November. It was well attended by the Hon Louise Upston, Minister for Land information, Her Worship Celia Wade-Brown, the Mayor of Wellington, executives of government, businesses and the education sectors, the spatial profession and the people who were inspired and benefited from the use of the technology. The dynamism of the networking would no doubt enhance the presence and capability of spatial technology.  

SIBA is proud of the achievements of the industry so far and will be revitalising its strategy to further push the boundary for the spatial industry to benefit New Zealand.
