Spatial Data and Analytics

Tuesday, 18 May 2021 | 09:00 AM - 11:00 AM AEST | Online

Collecting data to drive insight and enhance planning

Spatial data (or geospatial data) is an essential component of urban planning and design. When delivering infrastructure projects, the public sector has become increasingly reliant on digital maps, spatial platforms and predictive modelling to inform their projects. Agencies from across sectors use spatial data to manage projects, coordinate logistics and gain  insights into how infrastructure is used by citizens. Open spatial data platforms can also facilitate collaboration between government, the private sector and citizens by providing authoritative land values, property sales information and information on mobility trends. 

Join us at the complimentary ‘Spatial Data and Analytics’ virtual event which will showcase how the government is using spatial data to improve urban planning and facilitate collaboration between agencies.  Providing all stakeholders with accessible spatial data increases the transparency of public development decisions and facilitates cooperation between government and industry.
