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.
Glenn Cockerton was appointed the company’s inaugural Chief Executive in 2000. The company grew steadily through much of it’s first decade, expanding its client base across government and into the private sector.
Established a three way partnership between SV, the (then) Victorian Department of Sustainability and Environment and Country Fire Authority to produce a single set of topographic map products for use by emergency services organisations across the State.
Commenced publication of the very successful Vicmap Book series of topographic map books for emergency service use in 2006.
The digital companion topographic map product, Mapscape, was released in 2012 and was adopted by almost all emergency services.
After helping to set up the company in 1999, RMIT University divested its shares in Spatial Vision.
In 2019, Spatial Vision celebrates 20 years of operation, and of making a difference for both our clients and staff.
Spatial Vision expanded their IT services capability with the launch of a new brand Lapis to better serve the increasingly complex needs of both public and private sector organisations.
