NSW ePlanning service driven by government data

The NSW Government has launched an ePlanning service, delivered by NSW technology start-up Giraffe, that allows users to display and analyse the layers of data that contribute to the infrastructure future of NSW.

Bruce Thompson, Executive Director of the Department of Customer Service’s Spatial Services, said the platform leverages live digital data services from Spatial Services and the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment.

Thompson added that the platform demonstrates the ability for organisations to assemble rich data from the Spatial Digital Twin, the Spatial Collaboration Portal, as well as their own data into models and develop innovative tools.

“The result is a powerful public engagement tool that represents another step forward in the development of the NSW Government’s Property DNA vision,” Thompson said.

The public viewer platform visualises data in a consumable format, with a simple and intuitive interface, enabling users to make sense of a range of dynamic property development information. The application will be further developed as more data from collaborating agencies is included in the viewer.

“This ambitious service also combines ePlanning’s Development Application live data feeds and Western Sydney planning data with the power of Giraffe’s feasibility platform, providing a single, comprehensive view. This is just one of a range of products and services beginning to be delivered by industry partners leveraging our digital infrastructure,” Thompson said.

This initial release of the public portal can be accessed on desktop and mobile devices at https://giraffe-city-dev.web.app/nsw.
