    • Towards Whole of Government Spatial Enablement Bill Hirst ACT Surveyor-General Manager, Land Information November 2012
    • Problem• Silos – good intentions not realised• Duplication• So much potential• Technical agreement but lack of senior level commitment• ESA focused user
    • Spatial Virtual ACT
    • Quality Easily Assured Discovered Readily VIRTUAL FlexiblyIntegrated ACT Accessible Long Whole of Term Government
    • ACT STRENGTHS• Positional accuracy – integrity• ACT Land Information Group (ALIG), cooperative enthusiastic• Skills• CORS• ACTMAPi• PSMA – Jurisdictional cooperation• One government (no LGAs)
    • ACT WEAKNESSES• Silos• Some duplication – roads / points of interest• Lack of agreed whole of govt. policies - custodianship, metadata, pricing and access, licensing, software• Skill shortage – interoperability, data modelling• Lack of whole of government spatial planning, governance and leadership
    • ACT OPPORTUNITIES• Efficiencies in non-traditional areas• Exploit existing infrastructure• Exploit existing applications – utilise other jurisdictions applications – policies - skills• Open government• Digital city - Virtual ACT• Improve information management
    • ACT THREATS• Failure to deliver on expectations• Failure to take advantage of opportunities• Staff / skill loss• Failure to manage privacy / security concerns• Data hording – fear to release
    • The Challenge• Underutilised resources – data, infrastructure, applications• Limited budget• Competing demands on staff and resources• Privacy / security• Governance - commitment COMPELLING OPPORTUNITIES
    • Elements required• Communications• Technology• Policy RELATED• Governance• Financial
    • Selling the Concept COMMUNICATIONS• Important• On-going• Seek opportunities – Open Govt.• Never let a chance go by• Keep it simple (tricky)• Non-traditional (Health / Education) are the key targets• Looking for the story behind the data
    • Selling the ConceptSome useful facts and figures:• 80% of all information has a location component (?)• All information to 2003 = 5 exabyte 5,000,000,000,000,000,000 bytes Now generated in 48 hrs (Ed Parsons Google 2010)• CORS – centimetre accuracy – real time• Revenue $1.4B contributing $6-12B to GDP (ACIL Tasman 2008)• From Maps to Solutions• From managing spatial information to managing information spatially• 70-80% of all internet searches have location relevance (Peter Ulm – Microsoft Virtual Earth)
    • TECHNOLOGY• Need all (most) key players to agree• Leadership not ownership• Forget agencies – focus on customers• Listen to everyone• Try to move forward incrementally within a broad plan (Bigger the bang the bigger the risk)• Beware of complex in-house developments and large consultancies
    • Bite size. Hub conceptDon’t interrupt existing business systems
    • POLICY• Important for: – Custodianship – Pricing, licensing, access – Metadata (?) – Addressing• Plenty of examples and assistance available• Wide consultation required• Linked to communication / governance• Keep simple and succinct
    • Custodianship• ACT Government spends an estimated $4-5M annually maintaining spatial data• Much of this data is of interest to others outside the agency or section collecting the data• Need to maximise the return on investment• Potential to gain efficiencies by utilising custodianship as a tool to work more efficiently• Gives users more confidence in the level of integrity, timeliness, precision and completeness. KEY TO SDI
    • GOVERNANCE• Ideal whole of government• Biggest obstacle• Need teeth• Committees struggle• Whole of Govt. team – Handy – Expensive? – Only partially effective
    • FINANCE• Need on-going• Savings real but hard to honestly quantify• Pricing policy?• Can make progress with little• Share ideas / technology with others• Communication
    • Key messages• Constant selling required• Don’t try to own the thing – can’t break down silos by building another one• Consultation is tiring, tedious, on-going and essential• Governance remains a big challenge• Smaller on-going finance better than one off big sum• Keep trying – do a little bit every day• Minimise disruption to existing systems
