Relevant examples are expanded below.

Elevation and Depth 2030: Powering 3D Models of Our Nation

Geospatial Frameworks worked with the ICSM to develop a national strategy for the Foundation Spatial Data Framework Theme – Elevation and Depth.  The consultation draft was released for public comment November 2017  and the final strategy incorporating public feedback was released June 2018.  The strategy considers where elevation and depth information falls short of community expectations and anticipates the consequences of missing key growth opportunities in the future.  This is an important government strategy.  Elevation and depth information is critical to public safety, climate change studies and industry automation, and yet it is one of the most underutilized government data assets. Being able to visualize our environment as a 3-dimensional model is one of the most significant ways to help people make sense of their location.


GDA2020: Transitioning to a New Geodetic Datum

Geospatial Frameworks prepared a road map for the Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP), Western Australia to transition to the new Geocentric Datum of Australia (GDA2020).  While implementing the new datum is not an overly complex tasks, it is however, pervasive as it impacts on all spatial systems and is entrenched in mining and petroleum regulations and documentation.  In addition, the graticular grid used by the department to delineate exploration licenses required special consideration.  Dr. Arnold and Ms. Morgan developed and analyzed five options. DMP is now at the forefront in providing innovative solutions to support stakeholders in their endeavor to develop Western Australia’s rich mineral resources.  The recommended option provided a progressive way for DMP to do business in the future.


Cadastre 2034: Powering Land and Real Property

Geospatial Frameworks worked with the ICSM to develop a national strategy for Cadastral Reform and Innovation for Australia . The strategy was workshopped online, as the Surveyors’ General faced travel restrictions due to government budgetary pressures. The strategy identifies the goals and objectives for delivering a national cadastre appropriate to societal needs in 2034 and establishes a single point philosophy on what the community can expect and what the government has to deliver to achieve a sustainably managed cadastral system and one that provides integrated knowledge about land rights, restrictions and responsibilities. This project included a consultation process to seek broader community feedback on the consultation draft of the strategy.  The consultation process managed stakeholder engagement on behalf of the client, and stakeholder feedback was incorporated into the final Strategy.
