Western Australia’s Cutting-edge Development Map to Hit Ozri 2012

The website, which combines data from nineteen different state and Commonwealth agencies, will feature at Esri Australia’s Ozri 2012, the region’s leading GIS event.

Esri Australia Business Manager Tom Gardner said DevNet would, for the first time, provide instant access to comprehensive overviews of the planning process.

“The interactive map provides government agencies, urban planners, land owners and developers with a ‘one-stop shop’ for development data, including land zoning, infrastructure availability, environmental information and planning and subdivision approval data,” Mr Gardner said.

Department of Planning Director General Eric Lumsden said a key aim of the project is to facilitate more timely and informed government and private investment decisions.

“DevNet will be a major step towards achieving infrastructure coordination and improve agencies’ abilities to set and adjust priorities for future infrastructure provision.”

Mr Gardner said the way the Department of Planning had leveraged GIS technology to better serve the community would draw the attention of government agencies from across the nation.

“Providing easy access to information through interactive, intelligent mapping applications is becoming an increasingly popular way for government bodies to engage their communities,” said Mr Gardner.

“By leveraging technology to deliver improved access to information, the Department is certainly setting a benchmark and I anticipate we will be seeing other government authorities across the nation start to adopt similar approaches in the coming 12 months.”

Hosted by Esri Australia, the market leader in Australia’s $2.1 billion spatial industry, Ozri 2012 is the largest GIS conference in the Asia Pacific.
