The spatial@gov® Conference & Exhibition will examine spatial capabilities in developing government policy, delivering programs, enhancing service delivery and streamlining business practices.

Geospatial technology is integral in every corner of the business world and across government, with up to 80 per cent of information managed connected to a specific location in some way. By contributing over $12 billion to the Australian GDP, the geospatial industry is a key player in the nation’s new economy.

Steve Lieblich will present a paper entitled “Enabling Spatial Data Infrastructures” at the Open Day on Tuesday 5 October 2010 at 2:15pm.

The paper describes the role of iDelve in enabling the construction and effective utilisation of spatial data infrastructures for government.

Key functions include map viewing, data brokering, data caching and OGC acceleration.

WA examples are cited, of the rapid deployment of powerful online applications that are heavily dependent on large and diverse on-line spatial data services, for Departments with little in-house spatial capabilities.
