Climate scientists routinely rely on averaging over time or space to simplify complex information and to concisely communicate findings. Currently, no consistent definitions of 'warm' or 'cool' seasons for southern Australia exist, making comparisons across studies difficult. Similarly, numerous climate studies in Australia use either...

The importance of managing properties and people’s interests in complex multi-level developments is increasing, due to population growth and shortage of land in urban areas. As a result, cadastral systems are under pressure to change the way they capture, register and visualise 3D data of these multi-level scenarios. However, interests in land...
