HAMISH Scenic Low


Over the summer, Interpret hosted Hamish Kingsbury, a masters student from the University of Canterbury. Interpret secured a Callaghan Innovation research grant, which allowed Hamish to join the team at Interpret over the summer break. He spent this time developing a methodology to integrate Interpret’s existing road safety analysis work into a routing algorithm. This research culminated in a network where users can choose to optimise their route by time, distance or safety. As a result of this work, Hamish was the winner of the 2015 NZ Esri Young Scholar award, which has earned him a trip to the Esri User Conference in San Diego in July – a well-deserved prize!
