Please join us as Andrew Densley (acting Manager Vicmap Strategy and Engagement, DELWP) and Graeme Martin (General Manager Operations, Spatial Vision) discuss the future impact and insights for Local Governments.
Vicmap Roadmap
Andrew will provide an overview of the Vicmap Roadmap series that is currently under development within the Vicmap team, plus a sneak peek of some of the motivators for change within the Vicmap data space including customer-driven data model enhancements and technology-driven data supply and delivery capabilities.
The tsunami of data headed your way
Graeme will be speaking about the tsunami of data headed your way. There has never been a more interesting time to be involved in Local Government GIS especially in Victoria. And a more challenging time. There is a Tsunami of new spatial data becoming available to Local Governments that may open up many opportunities for delivering more spatially intelligent and reliable services. It may also overwhelm some agencies. This presentation will describe the challenges, opportunities and possible responses to these initiatives. Hopefully, it will also open up a conversation about collaborative approaches to dealing with them.
