The Our Water platform won a spatial excellence award as it was considered an exemplar of how spatial technologies can effectively deliver powerful user focused stories. This site allows complex and large volumes of data to be harvested and presented in a clear and simple manner. The technology solution and outcome also provides an excellent example of how a cloud based initiative allows the broadest possible number of users to access diverse information in an intuitive and informative environment.
