Interpret Entertains the Minister for Land Information

25 February 2016

Ministerial Visit

The Interpret team were excited to host a visit by the Hon Louise Upston and LINZ CEO Peter Mersi to the Interpret office. Our visitors were most interested to see demonstrations of how the team uses and combines different types of data, including open spatial data, to deliver high-value solutions for our clients. We demonstrated how we utilise the LINZ Data Service to source key spatial datasets such as imagery and cadastral data which forms the basis of many of Interpret’s applications we deliver for our clients.

The Minister’s visit was prompted by Interpret’s success at the recent NZ Spatial Excellence Awards where we picked up a number of awards, including the Supreme Award. You can view more details of our success at the awards in this blog post.

The team appreciated the Minister's visit and the ensuing engaging and enthusiastic discussion facilitated by the visitor's challenging questions.
