Spatial Vision worked closely with GIS users and consumers within Council. Interactive workshops and online surveys were conducted to understand the current state of geospatial and the key requirements going forward to develop an integrated and comprehensive geospatial strategy. The strategy supports the council in consolidating their internal and public-facing GeoWeb solutions. By simplifying processes, the community and council are provided with a contemporary, accessible and integrated geospatial system that is also intuitive, mobile and dynamic.
Spatial Vision approached the consultancy as a capability assessment, based on a framework integrating the core concepts of geospatial intelligence and capability in the theme areas of: Internal business support & innovation; Smart with data; Powered by people; Support customers & stakeholders; and Spatial technology.
From these key areas, the strategy highlights four impact goals, ensuring alignment and integration with other Council strategies:
- Empower Customer
- Contemporary Geospatial solution
- Geospatial Intelligence Expertise
- Smart with data
The strategy dives deep into these four goals, outlining and detailing key supporting actions for each goal and a roadmap for these actions over a four-year timeframe. A review of the current state geospatial architecture and a market scan of available applications and platforms provides a foundation for the council to consider and ensure contemporary, integrated geospatial systems.
