Geotechnical Data at your fingertips
Colin Mazengarb and Bill Cromer
This meeting will serve as our end of year social function and including a short AGM and technical presentation. Complimentary drinks and finger food will be provided. The technical presentation: Digital data at your fingertips, will showcase the results of a private catalogue of geotechnical reports by William C Cromer Pty Ltd that was supported with AGS funds. In addition, an outline of other important data sources that are relevant to geotechnical investigations in Tasmania will be provided. The emphasis of this presentation will be how to access this information as web maps and web services live on your desktop, without relying on static and outdated data. The AGM will review our year, establish a new committee and discuss plans for 2024.
