Spatial Information Foundations

The Tasmanian Government's award-winning Spatial Information Foundations project developed a contemporary platform for the management and distribution of spatial information about Tasmania. 

Through this work, the Tasmanian Government aims to improve the quality and timeliness of service delivery and decision-making, especially in the areas of planning, economic development, policy development and emergency management.

The improved use of spatial information will also facilitate successful implementation of key government initiatives and priorities.

The development of Spatial Information Foundations is part of the Tasmanian Government ICT Strategy, and supports Tasmania's Economic Development Plan,  Sense-T and government strategies for planning reform.
