Overiview - Spatial Information Foundations Project

Development of new, state-of-the-art spatial information infrastructure

Spatial Information Foundations is a two-year project to develop a contemporary platform for the management and distribution of spatial information across all tiers of government and the private sector and facilitate the improved use of spatial information for key priorities of the Tasmanian Government. Project Overview

This will improve the quality and timeliness of services and decision-making, especially in the areas of planning, economic development, policy development and emergency management. The project is part of the Tasmanian Government ICT Strategy, and it supports the Economic Development Plan, strategies for planning reform and the SenseT program.

LATEST BULLETIN - information about the new Tasmanian Imagery Program
This investment enhances the technological framework of the LIST, which was developed in the 1990s.

    • A new web interface for the LIST – for improved access to a wider range of spatial information
    • A web-based spatial data and services directory – providing improved discoverability of spatial data and services for use, analysis and reuse by more users
    • High speed image servers – with rapid delivery of remotely sensed imagery through LISTmap and web services
    • A data management and delivery system for planning data – providing new web-based capabilities for the visualisation and spatial integration of planning information
    • An address validation service – for automatic verification and more efficient management of address information within government agencies
    • A web-based spatial data delivery service – providing new capabilities for downloading and delivering spatial data
    • A web-based, emergency services Common Operating Picture (COP) for Tasmania – providing emergency management organisations with an authoritative, shared view of critical emergency and incident information
    • A new Tasmanian land parcel and property boundary database (numeric cadastre) – an enhanced cadastral dataset that is able to maintain boundary alignment with core administrative data, eg planning zones
    • A sustainable strategy for the ongoing acquisition and delivery of remotely sensed imagery for Tasmania – allowing the detection of changes in natural and built assets over time
Seven parallel sub-projects

The project is being implemented through seven sub-projects. See the fact sheets for more information.
