Spatial Vision was established in June 1999 by five founding staff with the assistance of RMIT University. It commenced operations shortly thereafter working on a range of projects for mainly Victorian Government clients in the land, fisheries, natural resource and emergency management domains.
Spatial Vision is a company founded in 1999 to work alongside like-minded organisations and government departments to solve their spatial, social and environmental challenges.
We’re guided by our passion and curiosity for what’s possible with geospatial and information technology, and work closely with our clients to understand their problems and find intelligent, engaging solutions.

WE’RE DOING WHAT WE CAN TO CREATE A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
It’s not just a nice-to-have option – it’s one that we should all be working towards.

Where does a medium-sized Australian company like Spatial Vision fit into this?
We recognise that decisions we make today will influence our collective future. Accordingly, within the limits of our influence as a company, we’re committed to building a sustainable future.
Our core values underpin everything we do. We believe they’re fundamental to our long-term success.
