Information is like wine, technology is like fish: the next steps in building Australia's spatial data infrastructure

http://www.ga.gov.au/news-events/events/public-talks/building-Australias-spatial-data-infrastructure?utm_source=2017-promotion&utm_medium=7-June-Spatial-Talk&utm_content=ga-twitter&utm_campaign=Public-Talks

Foundation spatial data is utilised widely across different community sectors and is critical for public safety or national problem-solving. These datasets include addresses, administrative boundaries, place names, transport, imagery, water, elevation and depth, property, and positioning.

Geoscience Australia will demonstrate two platforms which support the implementation of a modern infrastructure for location information: the LINK, which describes the trusted foundation spatial datasets and supporting business information; and ELVIS, which now provides free, open and offline access to many of Australia's foundation spatial datasets. The seminar will outline next steps to improve discoverability, viewability, data quality and time to market.

Branch Head Simon Costello has worked for over 16 years with Geoscience Australia, PSMA Australia and the United Nations in the establishment and management of national geographic datasets and products. At Geoscience Australia he has managed a range of collaborative geospatial and modelling programs with states, industry and other Australian Government departments for geographic information management and critical infrastructure modelling programs.

Rob Newham has worked for GA since 2004 and has been involved with numerous projects. His career has transitioned from data production through to data management, modelling and analysis. In the last 18 months Rob has been involved with the development of the Foundation Spatial Data Framework (FSDF) LINK project.

Shane Crossman is Project Leader of Elevation Data Delivery within Geoscience Australia's National Location Information Branch. He has an Associate Diploma in Engineering in Land Information Sciences and over 20 years professional experience in the application of Elevation and GIS to a range of issues in relation to topographic mapping and emergency management.

This talk is presented as part of the Wednesday Seminar Series.

The Foundation Spatial Data Framework (FSDF) is hosting a workshop discussing how location information is critical for innovation and for simply running business in the 21st century. It will also discuss the newly deployed cloud base system called the Location INformation Knowledge platform (LINK). The LINK allows users to discover trusted location information, learn about federated data governance, understand provenance and access a wide variety of location information data supplied by the Commonwealth, States and Territory governments.

This workshop will also include the following guest speakers discussing the importance of trusted Foundation Spatial Data within their sectors.

  •          Greg Scott,  Inter-Regional Advisor, Global Geospatial Information Management, United Nations
  •          Wanda Skerrett, Chief Executive Officer – Open Spatial Australia and SIBA National Board Member

Come and find out more at a facilitated workshop at the ISDE/Locate17 conference – 2:00pm – 4:00pm Monday 3 April 2017.

In an increasingly digitised and complex world – transparency and standardised access is the answer.

21 Feb 2017

All of the legislation you enforce, the policy decisions you make, and the services you provide to citizens, impact Australian business and the community somewhere. To make informed decisions, and understand the impact of your work on Australia’s people and environment, you should be using trusted, authoritative and easily accessible location information that is endorsed by the governments of Australia.

On February 21st 2017, Geoscience Australia invites you to attend a whole of government briefing on the Foundation Spatial Data Framework (FSDF). 

Speakers:

The forum will have key note speakers from the Community Safety (Mark Crosweller, Director-General of Emergency Management Australia), Environment (TBC) and Social (TBC) sectors discussing their interactions with the FSDF as well as the FSDF Program Manager Simon Costello (Branch Head, Geoscience Australia) discussing the value of the framework. 

The forum also will demonstrate the Location Information Knowledge Platform (LINK), which is being made available to government staff.  The LINK allows users to discover trusted location information, learn about federated data governance, understand provenance and access a wide variety of location information supplied by the Commonwealth, States and Territories.  The principles and approach are of relevance to all data managers, custodians, stewards and users of location information.  The forum will also show how change programs can be managed across complex layers of governance.

This forum will is targeted at the Branch Head and Director level of agencies who currently use location information, may use location information, are interested in information management, or who are interested in seeing how this sector is managing and governing federated data.

Further information will be provided throughout January.  We look forward to seeing you on the 21st!
