I am a conservation biologist (with 15 years international experience) who is now working in the Spatial industry. One of my projects was awarded the GITA Australia and New Zealand Spatial Excellence award for 2013 and Highly Commended at QSEA. I have presented at several GIS and Disaster Management conferences in Australia since I moved in 2010.

I am focused on automating large processes using python along with ESRI/Mapinfo and open source GIS tools that complement the strengths of each other. I also work in Disaster Management and risk mitigation.

comment What is GIS for Indigenous Peoples?
@PolyGeo -I agree, I will re-phrase it. I am stuck on 2 points, namely writing 2 more examples of how GIS can help in understanding the different elements of a community (in Landuse planning) and a few more relevant global examples of how spatial thinking helps to solve issues.

comment What is GIS for Indigenous Peoples?
Thanks Aaron - the GIS in Plain english is good but doesn't exactly work for this audience. Nathan - I have already drafted it and just wanted comments. Sorry that it's off site but I'll change the question to ask ppl to comment here.
