That's Steve on top of a cherry picker, taking gigapixel photos of the Adelaide city skyline for Ocean Park in Hong Kong. Steve won a Distinguished Alumni Award from Monash University in 2001 and was the original creator of Adam Internet working with Greg Hicks. His systems engineering and management experience was gained in the rigorous Defence environments on JORN, AEW&C and the Air Warfare Destroyer Alliance. Steve is a member of the Hong Kong Australia Business Association South Australia (HKABA), the Committee for Adelaide and a member of the Away3D core team. His expertise in internet technologies, network management, mathematics, programming applications and just about everything else is the driving force behind Georama and its products. Steve likes drinking coffee, playing guitar, loves his cat and tends to fly around on strange things.

Our team has strengths in innovation, technical consulting, systems engineering, network architecture, network management and internet technologies. This broad level technical experience and capability enables many innovative solutions to be developed, and several special projects are ongoing.

In 2006 Georama developed street walkthroughs of Adelaide using panorama photographs ("The Adelaide Georama"). This was months before Google Street View. A look back to the past - the Adelaide Georama 2006 in Quicktime and with walkthroughs in Flash.

In July 2010 Georama were the acknowledged first in the world to develop multiple panoramas in a single virtual tour for iPad and iPhone. Using the latest HTML5/CSS3 technology, tours are displayed directly in the web browser with no plugins or applications needed. Automatic detection by our servers enables access via a single web address for all devices.

We are also available for special projects, technical consulting and online media. Contact steve@georama.com.au with details of your requirements and ideas for your projects.

In November 2012, Georama satisfied the requirements for the Australian Tourism Accreditation Program and is now an Accredited Tourism Business Australia. So we have the Australian Tourism 'tick' of quality assurance - Trust the Tick!

In January 2014, we were contracted by W. Hing Construction in Hong Kong to create two giant wall photographs of the South Australian bush, one 40 metres wide by 7.5 metres high and a second 18 metres wide by 8 metres high, for the new attraction "Adventures in Australia" in Ocean Park, Hong Kong, featuring koalas donated by the South Australian government. This work was followed by a further contract direct to Ocean Park Corporation to create a 'city corridor' entrance covering six more walls. The city corridor displays the Adelaide skyline on one side and the opposite bank of the Torrens with the Adelaide Oval on the other side.

OUR COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT
Our environmental sustainability policies include fuel, energy and water conservation and recycling. Our staff are committed to carrying out our work without damage to the environment. Our vehicle is kept maintained to eliminate oil leaks and to minimize emissions and is kept to marked roads in national parks. All rubbish, spares, food containers are removed to leave no trace of our presence. Our vehicle is quiet and we and our equipment make no noise while on location in sensitive areas. Our Oktokopter is particularly environmentally friendly. Whereas current aerial photography methods like using a helicopter are noisy, the Oktokopter is completely silent and will be able to be used without disturbing wildlife. We promote the environment through the online display of SA national parks. Our images with the gentle sounds of nature as ambient background sound show the extreme beauty of the outback and national parks with the aim of showing visitors the need to preserve such beauty for future generations. We hope that we are encouraging tourists to preserve the beauty they see and leave no impact on the environment.
