Location intelligence to shape Australia’s future
Government decisions lacking a local perspective rarely translate to on-the-ground success, whereas the policies, services and programs built on an understanding of where and how Australians work, live and play deliver exactly what’s needed.
Every industry, from insurance to real estate, benefits from knowing the exact location surrounding a decision. Government agencies rely on this as almost every interaction revolves around an address. Be it for managing emergencies, understanding the threat posed by climate change, modelling infrastructure or reducing the barrier to interaction with the public at large, location intelligence plays an important role.
Geoscape’s location data combines high-resolution aerial and satellite images with machine learning and the latest in AI (artificial intelligence) to extract features from the imagery that delivers both vector and raster data themes. The data goes through a rigorous process of engineering, harmonising and refinements and then is integrated and packaged for the end user.
With Geoscape, the Australian government has access to:
- 16million+ Buildings
- 15million+ Addresses
- 17million+ Land Parcels
- 1.9million+ Swimming Pools
- 1.8million+ Solar Panel installations
- 2.3million+ Kms of Roads
Digitally enabled government—Reliable and accessible location data is critical for the modern digital economy to take the guesswork out of the most foundational decisions. Using location data government can:
Interconnected government services backed by digital systems that are streamlined, secure and accessible are the foundation for a strong and resilient nation.
For programs to be more targeted and effective, government policies and services draw on data and analytics. Location data is an essential element in digitising the economy.
Transformation within the government has accelerated developments in location data when combined with digitally enabled devices, big data, artificial intelligence, IoT (Internet of Things), and machine learning providing a better understanding of consumer behaviour that can be used to transform operations and bring innovation.
Governments are no longer waiting to respond to events. They’re tactically preparing for disasters to ensure they deliver effectively and efficiently when needed. Location intelligence helps to achieve this and more.
Strategies for all jurisdictions point to the need for decision-making to be human-driven, informed and connected by data.
Location data offers insights into worldwide trends, patterns or risks, while also adding depth to information about the people who live in certain locations.
