spatial showcase

DELWP Spatial Showcase December 2019

What do satellites tracking eels, rapid fire monitoring, crime hotspots and AI-driven pool safety have in common?

They were just some of the amazing spatial projects on display at the Victorian Spatial Showcase event at the newly-refurbished State Library Victoria on Tuesday 10 December 2019.

Hosted by Land Use Victoria’s Strategic Land Assessment and Information division, with over 340 in-person attendees and 40 participants watching over the livestream in places as far away as France and the US – we learned about how the Victorian State Government is using spatial information to make data-driven decisions and drive innovation across planning, infrastructure, environmental monitoring, transport, criminal justice, health and more.

The event highlighted some of DELWP’s landmark spatial projects, including the $45 million Digital Cadastre Modernisation program, Victoria’s first digital twin project for Fishermans Bend and updates from Victoria’s Surveyor General and Valuer General, as well as talks from experts from other agencies, including the Office of Projects Victoria, Department of Premier and Cabinet, Department of Transport and Victoria Police.

Melissa Harris, Executive Director Strategic Land Assessment and Information, said the event showcased how the Victorian government is using spatial information to make data-driven decisions and drive innovation.

“It highlighted how DELWP is powering Victoria’s spatial ecosystem by providing an opportunity for attendees to discover more about the emerging trends, technologies and digital innovations in spatial that are shaping our future and providing a forum to connect and collaborate.”
