Improving Accessibility of Protected Area Information

Spatial Vision’s Lapis team were engaged by the Department of Water Agriculture & Environment to re-develop their Protected Matters Search Tool with a modern, intuitive user interface.

The tool aims to assist stakeholders in determining the location of Matters of National and Environmental Significance (MNES), or if other matters protected by the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 are likely to occur in a particular area. Furthermore, the PMST tool is essential to implementing a targeted risk-based approach to compliance and enforcement with the Act.

The new and improved tool provides a modern, user-friendly interface with added functionality including advanced search and dynamic reporting capabilities. The latest technologies underpin the solution with a robust front-end framework Angular providing enhanced speed and performance.

Partnering with ThinkPlace, Lapis worked collaboratively on the design phase with the Department’s technical team to understand stakeholder needs and requirements. Through an agile approach, Lapis led the software development phase, leveraging Spatial Vision’s extensive experience in spatial web app development and location-based IT solutions.
