  • 2. 2 outline changes spatial capabilities: one positioning service seven spatial services spatial marketplace spatial governance summary
  • 3. 3 changes spatial collaboration integration connectivity
  • 4. 4 changes: spatial from: spatial is special proprietary siloed ’85% of information is spatial’ to: managing information spatially open standards, platform integration commodity spatial one attribute of many value of any attribute will vary over time and in context

  • 6. 6 changes: collaboration from: simple reductionist single discipline single organisation to: complex systemic multi-disciplinary consortia
  • 7. 7 changes: collaboration maintaining Vicmap – government did it all (tried to) partnerships across levels of government and with private sector and academia custodianship model distributes responsibilities to match capabilities
  • 8. 8 changes: integration from: autonomous robust self-reliance internal data internal applications persistent, stable environment to: interdependency isolation self-defeating external data external services dynamic, volatile ‘on-the-fly’ reconfiguration
  • 9. 9 changes: connectivity from: fragmented bottlenecks limited coverage organisational/sector pipes to: complex interdependency optimised high speed backbones full coverage general commodity service fibre optic to 93% of homes and workplaces remaining 7% by wireless or satellite provision for specific ‘non-premises’ connections (sensor networks, telemetry, etc)
  • 10. 10 one positioning service: GPSnet GPSnet: statewide real-time high reliability 2cm accurate audited and recorded network of 103 Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS)
  • 11. 11 one positioning service: GPSnet
  • 12. 12 one positioning service: GPSnet
  • 13. 13 one positioning service: GPSnet
  • 14. 14 one positioning service: GPSnet
  • 15. 15 one positioning service: GPSnet
  • 16. 16 one positioning service: GPSnet high reliability: 24x7 Network Geometric Error, Network Stability the 2cm resolution threshold Monitoring
  • 17. 17 one positioning service: GPSnet first 3 months 2011-12 = first 6 months 2010-11
  • 18. 18 one positioning service: GPSnet designed and built for all possible users positioning component approaching commodity status complexity in the backend – achieving low latency, high service levels, near-safety-of-life reliability enabler for impending Collaborative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS), 2015-16
  • 19. 19 seven spatial services acquisitionenablement maintenance publishing products discovery and benefits access presentation services feedback/notify
  • 20. 20 seven spatial services: acquisition, maintenance Vicmap maintenance and development twelve framework vector data sets 5 day update cycle data sourced from 100+ entities, mostly local government operations outsourced to private sector Coordinated Imagery Program (CIP) $40+ million imagery and elevation products acquired in last three years panel of private sector providers
  • 21. 21 seven spatial services: publishing Data Publishing Service allows custodian to publish data to Victorian Spatial Data Library appropriate metadata for discovery, operations and business intelligence custodian determines any access constraints – pricing, licensing, use restrictions
  • 22. 22 seven spatial services: discovery Datasearch Victoria provides full discovery for data in Victorian Spatial Data Library full text search keyword search spatial search metadata, product descriptions provided
  • 23. 23 seven spatial services: access access 1.0: Spatial Datamart online data delivery service data delivered via FTP or physical media mature system in operation for nearly a decade tens of thousand of data deliveries access 2.0: Web Services Catalogue data available for direct connection through OGC compliant web services provides search/discovery and access in a single interface newer system, not all data available yet
  • 24. 24 access: Web Services Catalogue
  • 25. 25 seven spatial services: presentation three tier presentation services simple – Vicmap API, Google, Bing mid-range – VicGIS complex – traditional COTS GIS for modelling, analytics
  • 26. 26 presentation: Vicmap API
  • 27. 27 Vicmap API: why? Nov 2010 – government mapping and address data from Google Maps replaced by ‘snap shot’ map base from Sensis quality issues , crowd-sourcing data updates instead of using authoritative government sources risk to government in displaying incorrect information incompatibility with government business requirements reputation and liability Vicmap – currency, completeness, reliability, accuracy fit for purpose
  • 28. 28 example - Cranbourne roads and addressed properties in three new proposed subdivisions 20 roads missing 235 addressed properties missing subdivisions created (as proposed) in Vicmap 14/04/2010, 12/05/2010 subdivisions approved in Vicmap 21/03/2011, 10/03/2011 construction commenced shortly after, still not available from commercial map providers
  • 29. 29 example - Cranbourne progress at 28 June 2011 (image supplied by local government) status at mid-November: 217 dwellings: 102 buildings under construction 79 buildings complete 36 buildings occupied
  • 30. 30 Vicmap API provides quality levels (currency, completeness, reliability, accuracy) commercial providers not prepared to provide necessary for the business of government in both operational and policy development contexts
  • 31. 31 presentation: VicGIS
  • 32. 32 seven spatial services: feedback/notify Notification for Edit Service (NES)
  • 33. 33 seven spatial services: feedback/notify Victoria’s Notification for Edit Service (NES) mediated ‘crowd-sourcing’ (from trusted notifiers) 450+ individuals across 140 organisations notifications routed to custodian (in government, utilities, private sector) custodian approves/rejects notification maintainer makes required amendment collaboration is cost-effective, efficient, essential
  • 34. 34 the rise quality on maintenance 20 costs reducing 08 - downward trend…20 0 7( 0 500 1000 1500 2000 2500 08 JU -0 L)20 9 08 (SE -1 P) 20 1(N 09 O - V)20 0 1 09 (JA -0 N20 3(M ) 09 A -0 R 20 5(M ) 09 A - Y20 0 7( ) 09 JU -0 L)20 9 09 (SE -1 P) 20 1(N 10 O -0 V)20 1 10 (JA -0 N20 3(M ) 10 -0 A R 20 5(M ) 10 A - Y20 0 7( ) 10 JU - L20 0 9( ) 10 SE -1 P) 20 1(N 11 O V)20 -0 1 11 (JA -0 N20 3(M ) 11 A -0 R ) 20 5(M 11 A -0 Y) 7( JU L) seven spatial services: feedback/notify notification rate seems to be on a slight Closed Custodian Submitted Completed
  • 35. 35 spatial marketplace acquisition enablement maintenance publishing products discovery access and benefits presentation services feedback/notify spatial marketplace
  • 36. 36 Click to edit Master title style Vision the Spatial Marketplace will be a simple and useable one-stop-shop for finding spatial data, accessing spatial analysis tools and sharing spatial resources. 36
  • 37. 37 spatial marketplace if delivered as intended, has the ability to supersede most Victoria-specific spatial services publishing discovery access presentation feedback/notify acquisition, maintenance probably still jurisdiction specific
  • 38. 38 governance for spatial enablement Victorian Spatial Council all sectors represented three tiers of government academia emergency services privates sector utilities professions develops a whole-of-Victoria Spatial Strategy, not a government strategy rolls up into national framework: SIBA, CRCSI, ANZLIC, PSMA
  • 39. 39 governance for spatial enablement governance within Victorian government now rests with CIO Council ‘mainstreamed’ alongside other key issues – information security, architecture, information management, identity management
  • 40. 40 summary spatial enablement a holistic endeavour – can’t be undertaken by or for any single sector governance needs to reflect this drivers forcing change government focus on enabling services one positioning service seven spatial services regional spatial marketplace can pull it all together perhaps we’re not too far from ‘what was all the fuss about?’
