Geoimage Welcomes Enterprise Software Solutions Manager
Australia’s leading independent specialist in satellite imagery and geospatial solutions welcomes new staff member in Brisbane.
Geoimage is proud to announce and welcome Mark Covington as the company’s Enterprise Software Solutions Manager.
The role is new to Geoimage and Mark’s appointment represents its commitment and investment to develop new software-enabled service capability and solutions.
Mark brings a wealth of experience to Geoimage, with more than 27 years in the spatial industry developing software solutions for companies in exploration and mining, utilities, transport and government sectors. His expertise includes advanced analytical problem solving, software development, and project management.
Most recently, Mark was the Principal Project Manager for Geomatic Technologies, responsible for the Queensland office and delivering large complex spatially-oriented software solutions to industry.
Mark’s notable career includes both domestic and international projects. Mark worked in Japan for two years while managing a Japanese Government funded research project to develop a smart GIS system for coal exploration and more recently managed an innovative track monitoring system for the Sydney Metropolitan passenger train network. Mark explains, “The system required the integration of lasers, high-speed cameras and GPS receivers fitted to a specially designed train. Captured geolocated imagery is assessed by track inspectors using the visualisation software we developed allowing a virtual walk of the train corridor from the safety of their office.”
Mark's arrival compliments Geoimage’s new strategic initiatives and strengthens the organisation’s network of capability within the spatial sciences sector. “I am excited to start a new challenge within Geoimage and am looking forward to the journey ahead, to being a part of realising the vision and to forging new relationships, with the Geoimage team and clients,” Mark said.
Mark graduated with Honours in Geophysics from the University of Queensland and has a Graduate Diploma in Computer Science from the University of New England. He is also a Certified Practicing Project Manager and PRINCE2 practitioner.
Mark has served on several industry boards, including Director on the Queensland branch of Spatial Industries Business Association (SIBA) and was industry representative on the Queensland Spatial Information Council (QSIC). He is currently a member of the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM), Institute of Analytics Professionals of Australia (IAPA) and Information Technology Professionals of Australia (ITPA).
