“Location” is crucial information for the water industry to not only enable the visualisation of assets and infrastructure, but also to report on water main breaks, customer complaints, asset condition, work orders, field operations, new property developments, and other customer service areas.

Spatial Vision is conducting the 2018 Water Industry GIS Capabilities survey. In 2002, Spatial Vision completed the first GIS Capabilities Survey of Water Authorities in Victoria. Spatial Vision has since followed this up with national surveys in 2006 and 2009.

In 2002, Spatial Vision completed the first GIS Benchmark Survey of Water Authorities in Victoria. Spatial Vision has since followed this up with national surveys in 2006 and 2009. The purpose for the surveys is to enable each authority to benchmark their operational deployment of this technology against their industry counterparts.

Water authorities first started using GIS or spatial information technologies in the early 1980s. However, as evident by Google Earth, the technology has rapidly evolved in recent years and become far more accessible. By 2009, 100% of authorities surveyed operated web-based spatial systems available enterprise-wide, a huge shift from 40% in 2002.
