WALIS Forum 2013 Wrap Up

Li Cunxin reminded us that you only get a few big opportunities and that its important to make brave decisions.

Mike Bradford noted that we still have much work to do to create a comprehensive, shared exchange of location information - SLIP Future is just a start.WALIS07-11-2013 0132.

Mia Davies talked about how initiatives like LOCATE are bringing what we have achieved as a community to a whole new audience and challenged us to better communicate more about what we can do for the community and business; and Dylan Lorimer shared Google's experience is taking this challenge to the world.

Natasha Leger and Arthur Berrill introduced us to LoLa. She is growing up and learning to create a new discipline - Locationomics; but she'll need to look out for the distraction of Tool Affordance.WALIS07-11-2013 0276

Gary Nairn, on behalf of Alan Smart, reminded us of the importance of, and helped show how we can plug economics into Locationomics.

Richard Simpson explored LoLa's ancestors - taking us back to the 1500's, through to a virtual 1915, and out to 2100; and in addition to this 4th dimension, he reminded us how spatial brings together the other 3 dimensions.

Pierre Goovaerts scared a few people with his tales of his geostatistical detective work on cancer clusters and poisionings around the world.

Peter Woodgate reflected on the unique experience of the CRC - SI, and reminded us that we have something special in the water here in WA - and it's not just the sharks.

Nathan Quardros demonstrated the power of using location to help friends in need.
