      Ahh pity about the GIS requirement, I can do C++ and Java in my sleep

      I might point some people your way though.

              Hehe ahh if we had Grad positions open I would let ya know... Not sure if we are able to take on any this year though

              The GIS position is proving very hard to fill

                Well its not kinda common.

                and Perth loses most of their leading/bleeding edge engineers/programmers overseas. Mainly because thats where the work is.

                Perth is laregely Grads, and those who are settled with families that just want the status quo until retirement. (Gross stereotyping i know )

                If you want interesting work, it usualy means having to move. And that means businesses that deal with new stuff usually dont operate in perth due to lack of skilled workers. catch 22.

                    hmmm brings back memories of ArcGIS/ArcVIEW and Surpac work I did while I was in the mining industry. They used GIS for analysing potential sites and after they dug out the minerals they'd use it for making sure the landscape looked the way it did before they started pillaging and plundering as part of their legal/environmental obligations. They also used it to analyse the big hole in the ground that they made. The actual mine was this floating monstrosity attached to two big dredges/ship thingies that scooped out dirt in a massive man-made pond thingy about 40m deep! I learned a lot about global positioning the day I had to replace a PC on one the dredges...they use to make these funky 3D models of what the terrain looked like below the water. I'm pretty sure they did it by cross matching the GPS data with the data from the dredge arm height sensors...essentially it was do-it-yourself GIS data. Oh they also used it to plot the courses for the dredges and monitor their geographical positions on 2D maps in real-time. So yes GIS does have it's uses beyond Google Earth.

                    I've wondered about its application to 3D gaming and simulations... you could make some interesting maps based on actual locations if you could export that stuff to a quake map or something. I wonder if NASA has GIS data for other planets....probably....

                    You might wanna ask around the geology crowd coz some of them have c++ and java experience... but a geo will have a whole heap of GIS experience and possibly less on the programming side...say object orientation or UML to some of those guys and they'll give you funny looks (whadaya mean a class??? just do it all in main() with global variables!!!)
