Perth, Australia – 27 June 2013 – Landgate (Western Australia’s Land Information Authority) has contracted through Geospatial Intelligence Pty Ltd, an Astrium Services’ reseller, the SPOTMaps coverage of Western Australia (2.6 million km²) with multi-year hosting and streaming.
Astrium’s Cloud Services will support Western Australia Lands Department to efficiently manage its territory, four times the size of France
Landgate (Western Australia’s Land Information Authority) will use Astrium’s Cloud Services solution to manage geo-information data over a territory of 2.6 million km², four times France. This will help to reduce infrastructure costs and maintenance, resulting in more efficient utilization of funding across Western Australian government entities and easier access to geographical data and spatial information.
Landgate’s role is to coordinate the supply of data across government and to minimize the duplication of resources by collecting location data once, then sharing that data across all Western Australian state government entities. For this reason, Landgate intends to use SPOTMaps imagery as the base level dataset for SLICP, a platform that allows multiple government agencies to share spatial information for environmental mapping, cadastre, infrastructure, engineering, agricultural and emergency services.
Astrium Services’ hosting service will help reduce infrastructure costs and maintenance for location information, resulting in a more efficient utilization of funding across Western Australian government entities and easier access to spatial information.
This streaming service is provided with a 99.5% online service guarantee, which is crucial when supporting emergency and rescue operations.
The imagery received from the SPOT 5 satellite will particularly benefit those agencies that carry out functions such as the management of emergency response, environmental mapping, planning and infrastructure.
This contract through Geospatial Intelligence, provides the recognised benefits of SPOTMaps - a consistent, accurate and seamless 2.5m resolution dataset - across the whole of Western Australia. More importantly, the availability of this data through our web hosting and streaming service into SLICP, ensures the immediate availability of SPOTMaps for all Western Australian government entities to access via their GIS software or web browser.
