Working in a government department such as DLI gives me a great opportunity to explore all that GIS has to offer. We run a variety of GIS flavours at work, from ESRI products such as SDE, IMS and Eview to IWS, Mapserver, Geoserver, Deegree, Mapguide, Mapinfo, Intergraph, PostGIS and a lot of other home grown applications designed in Perth. Pretty much everything I can get my hands on :)
I originally started this blog mid 2005 to just post my latest invention, hack or workaround that might be of use to the community. It is unfortunate that in general, most people don’t share their thoughts all too much in the geospatial sense. Hope this inspires like minded individuals to hop onto the blog train and start giving us their views.

Anyway, feel free to flick me a mail. I love hearing from people all over the world and what theyre working on.
