VIDEO: Spatial data for NSW Government

In this video presentation, Wayne Patterson, Director of NSW Spatial Services within the NSW Government’s Department of Finance, Services and Innovation (DFSI), explains how crucial spatial data is sourced, produced, maintained and distributed.

Specifically, Patterson describes a project resulting from an agreement between the NSW Government and the CSIRO’s Data 61.

“How it originated, was DFSI as well as other NSW Government agencies had some significant input into the NSW State Infrastructure Strategy,” he said. “As a result of that, the State Infrastructure Strategy and Infrastructure NSW realised the importance of data and information to support policy development decisions and being able to create and monitor a ‘smart’ NSW.”

“The big challenge that was posed to us was, how do we take our foundation spatial data … from a 2D to a 4D component?”
