Tasmania Raises Bar for Nation’s Land Management

Esri Australia Business Manager for Tasmania Jean-Noel Jarnet said the project, set to be completed in mid-2013, will deliver benefits to the entire Tasmanian community.

“Any Tasmanian who requires access to cadastral parcels – which includes information such as property boundaries or land title and valuation information – will benefit from this nation-first project,” Mr Jarnet said.

“Whether it’s home buyers needing to know property specifics, such as zoning or valuation information; developers wanting a clearer understanding of land suitability; or government departments looking to better match services to properties – this partnership will provide all stakeholders with unparalleled access to the land information they require.

“By improving the efficiency of maintenance of the state’s cadastral and administrative data, the new system will also facilitate the management and delivery of planning scheme information through the Land Information System Tasmania (LIST) initiative.”

The partnership will see DPIPWE use the latest ArcGIS technology to verify, store and manage the state’s land data, and make it available to stakeholders via web services and an interactive online map.

Mr Jarnet said the project would be sure to drive similar overhauls from other State and Federal land information custodians in the near future.

“Tasmania is already regarded as one of Australia’s most progressive states in terms of their GIS technology capabilities – with Hobart City Council, Launceston City Council and the state’s three water and sewage providers considered leaders in the industry,” Mr Jarnet said.

“The fact the DPIPWE is now using the technology to rebuild their cadastral database further cements the state’s status as GIS pioneers. 

“Providing improved access to land information is a priority for many governments – and this project will set the benchmark for other departments and land management agencies across the country.”

The project is part of the Tasmanian Government Spatial Information Foundations initiative, which aims to develop greater GIS capabilities across all tiers of government and the private sector.
