Dr Scully Power is a leading World Authority on Space visualisation and remote sensing sciences, and has been significantly involved with Google Earth technologies in Federal Government initiatives in the United States. He is a great advocate for the benefits of these technologies in many areas, including managing natural disasters, agriculture and mining, and multi-agency/organisational operations and situational awareness.
Professor Tim Foresman is a former NASA Visiting Scientist, involved in the early development of Google Earth, and is the new Chair of Spatial Information at the Queensland University of Technology. He is an avid advocate for spatial sciences and the benefits to the community and industry, especially in a large state like Queensland, and firmly believes that this state is leading the World in these technologies.
