Spatial excellence honoured at WA’s SIBA-GITA awards

By on 23 October, 2017

A set of 11 Western Australian businesses, projects and individuals were recognised at the SIBA-GITA awards on October 13, 2017.

Five businesses and six individuals were awarded at the event, run by the Spatial Industries Business Association (SIBA | GITA), and the Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI).  SIBA|GITA CEO Deanna Hutchinson said that the calibre of entries speaks volumes about the West Australian spatial industry.

“Many people don’t understand that spatial is ‘technology in place.’ It is a valuable business planning tool, infrastructure development tool and has huge impacts on the way Australians live their lives,” she said.

“I am really impressed with the level of sophistication of the projects and technology developed by these businesses, and the dedication and drive of the industry’s best professionals.”
