AGENDA

Main Event

11:00am – 12:40pm

Location: THE STUDIO

Dr. Rob Newman - CEO, Nearmap
An update on the latest developments and future outlook for Nearmap, and what it means for you.

Don Weigel - SVP Product, Nearmap
A view of the Nearmap product roadmap including an update on how our custom-designed and built HyperCamera3 will deliver more content and new product types.

Dr. Michael Bewley - Senior Director, AI Systems, Nearmap
A deep dive into the fifth and latest iteration of Nearmap AI and the expanded capabilities it unlocks.

Emma Bacon - Executive Director and Founder, Sweltering Cities 
Look closer into the effective, practical approaches we can all take to plan, create and monitor more sustainable, liveable cities.

Lucinda Hartley - Founding Director, Neighbourlytics
Analysing geospatial data tells part of the story about any location. But what about the social data: where we spend time, how we work, who we see, and what we value? In this presentation, Lucinda Hartley, founding director of social analytics platform, Neighbourlytics, shares insights about multiple factors that contribute to vibrant, active neighbourhoods, and how social data addresses the seen and unseen needs of societies to create more liveable, sustainable communities.

12:45pm – 1:30pm

Location: THE LOFT

1:40pm – 2:05pm

Location: THE STUDIO

Esther Lang - Project Engineer, Downer

Learn how Downer uses MapBrowser and the Projects tool for real-time, large-scale project planning on existing assets, including using tools to demonstrate work areas, and running parallel ‘projects’ to allow for side-by-side comparison of work areas. During this presentation, you will see how Nearmap content helped effectively plan and manage a major road project, to oversee time-limited works, assess emergency services and worksite needs, including site safety and access aspects. Learn how the team managed multiple projects to reach successful project completion meeting client needs and with minimal impact to road users.

Location: THE BREAKOUT

Nick Mulcahy - Coastal Risk and Research Manager, Surf Lifesaving New South Wales

On average, 42 people tragically drown on the NSW coastline every year. To reduce this toll, we need to know where and when the risk is highest and ensure safety interventions are targeted accordingly. One of the biggest gaps in current knowledge is the number of people using unpatrolled beaches. Surf Lifesaving NSW uses high-resolution aerial imagery captured by Nearmap to quantify the patterns and distribution of beach and water users in NSW, as part of the project Coastal insights: safer coasts for the future. This enables Nick’s team to quantitatively assess the risk of drowning and injury along the coast for the first time, and provide insights and recommendations to improve safety.

2:20pm – 2:45pm

Location: THE STUDIO

Ben Marsonet - Chief Executive Officer, Altus Traffic

Ben will share how Altus Group, Australia’s largest Traffic Management company, is bringing about a generational change to the safety of roadworkers in Australia and New Zealand through the use of leading global IoT and digital twin technology.

Location: THE BREAKOUT

Dr. Michael Bewley - Senior Director, AI Systems, Nearmap

Observing the world and how it changes provides clarity that leads to smarter decision-making. In this session, Dr Michael Bewley presents a closer look at a deep-dive analysis using just two of the 78 layers in the latest iteration of Nearmap AI. Nearmap Gen 5 AI includes new layers – surface permeability, debris and roof objects – along with expanded layers on existing packs, and a Rollup API that delivers more than 500 facts per address. See how the ground-breaking capabilities of Nearmap Gen 5 AI can be applied to answer complex questions at an industrial scale.

3:00pm – 3:25pm

Location: THE STUDIO

M’Shenda Turner - Senior Director, ANZ Survey Operations, Nearmap

John Corbett - Director, Vision Systems, Nearmap

The Nearmap coverage footprint continues to increase year-on-year, with ANZ coverage set to encompass up to 95% of the Australian population, with new areas added over the next 12 months. And in North America, more than 80% of the population is covered, capturing more than 1,740 urban areas. Gain an overview of the geospatial operations team plan to increase coverage and provide expanded content and insights to Nearmap customers. In this session, you’ll also learn what’s possible with Nearmap content in the event of disasters from a pre-catastrophe and post-catastrophe perspective, from assessing damage to planning recovery and response, asset inspection, flood modelling and more.

Location: THE BREAKOUT

Vaughn Muirhead - Associate Director, Cloud First, Google Business Group, Accenture

This session will walk through the automated solar quoting experience Accenture developed in partnership with a large Australian energy provider.

3:45pm – 4:30pm

Solution Sessions

Devin Doring
Technical Services Supervisor, City of Salem, Oregon

Applying machine learning (computer vision) algorithms against captured imagery is becoming more accessible and enhancing its value. In the past, these techniques were too specific or expensive to be adopted by most groups. However, this is changing. Imagery is becoming more than just a nice picture or base map and instead becoming an incredibly information-dense, question-answering medium. Come hear how the City of Salem answered its questions concerning tree canopy impact after a devastating ice storm using Nearmap AI-derived layers and simple GIS analysis.

Bill Meehan
Director, Electric Utility Solutions, Esri

Digital transformation and the mapping of the world enable sustainability. However, as we attempt to attack the serious problems of our energy: deteriorating infrastructure, climate impact, poverty, pollution, and inequity, we need to think differently. We must move from an incremental approach to one of innovation. Location technology provides a common framework for looking at every aspect of our world – since nearly everything exists somewhere. Join this session with Bill Meehan to learn how thinking differently will help us map the way to sustainable energy.

Noel Bunol
Executive Vice President, Gulf States Insurance

Bryan Adams
Senior Vice President – Head of Catastrophe Analytics, Arch Insurance

Elizabeth Del Ferro
General Manager, Insurance, Nearmap

Matthew Taylor
Insurance Solutions Product Manager, Nearmap

Kevin Tulp
Senior Solutions Engineer, Nearmap

Through specific insurer stories, see how property and casualty (P&C) insurers are leveraging Nearmap location intelligence to efficiently evaluate property risk, conduct virtual assessments and empower better pricing, quoting and underwriting decisions. Learn more about how to improve the quality of data being inputted in models and algorithms; evaluate and monitor current risk across your portfolio; find PIFs that are underinsured or have coverage gaps; mitigate and improve loss exposure, and improve accuracy and speed across the claims process.

Nikki Hart-Brinkley
Owner, Green Top Planning, Development and Research

In September 2020, the Almeda Fire swept through several communities in Jackson County, Oregon, destroying nearly 3,000 homes and businesses. In the city of Talent, more than a third of the city was within the fire’s perimeter, particularly devastating in affordable and senior housing developments. As an integral part of the recovery effort, Nearmap 3D mesh was used in Esri’s ArcGIS Urban environment to add visual context to the recovery. AI building extracts from pre- and post-fire flights allowed the creation of LOD2 structures which help track rebuilding, while canopy extracts measure urban forest loss and help guide strategic replanting.

Tim Connor
GIS Parcel Fabric Manager, Oklahoma County

Oklahoma County invested heavily in Nearmap in 2019. The County leverages Nearmap high-resolution aerial imagery and content for its change detection process. If approved by Oklahoma State lawmakers, Nearmap content can be used with change detection for an at-desk review of properties, removing the need to physically visit each property.

Marcus Lee – Planner and Scheduler, QLD, Veolia

The Veolia Network Services (VNS) Brisbane team shares how Nearmap aerial imagery and geospatial content informs their daily planning and scheduling workflows. By leveraging Nearmap content in MapBrowser in the Esri ArcGIS platform, VNS Brisbane can accurately identify site locations, determine property classification (such as commercial or residential), and locate assets in the field for effective preparation before going on site for asset maintenance. Safety is paramount, and the content also helps isolate safety issues, while providing information to assess road conditions for points of ingress, egress and to plan traffic control.
