This is a recording of the live webinar held on 16 July 2020.
Large scale updates to core information managed by many organisations, including Local Governments, is expected to be required over the coming year(s), particularly with the Vicmap DCM underway. Please join us as Andrew Densley (DELWP) and Graeme Martin (Spatial Vision) discuss the future impact and insights for Local Governments.
Vicmap Data Services
Andrew will give an overview of the service improvement projects and initiatives currently underway or planned within the DELWP Vicmap team including the “Vicmap as a Service” solution that provides fast and reliable access to the Vicmap portfolio of data products via APIs and OGC-compliant web services. New capabilities with this service also includes the ability to query time-series data and delta updates.
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.
