Map of Tasmania to be redrawn

State government kicks off Spatial Information Foundations project

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Tasmania will spend $AU3m to refresh the technological framework that underpins the State's Land Information System (LIST).

The new project aims “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.”

Deliverables from the project will include:

  • 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

The project is expected to run for two years and has been divided into seven sub-projects, each with a dedicated manager. An information sheet about the project (PDF) says "Common and/or compatible technological components" will be used across the sub-projects.®
