SEEGrid Roadshow 2005

Showcasing Interoperability of Government Geoscience Data to the Australian Minerals Industry


SEEGrid Home

Industry Need

Successful minerals exploration relies on continuous access to current and quality assured geospatial information, regardless of jurisdictional or geographic boundaries. However, the issue of poor data interoperability (or interchange) is widely recognised as a barrier to effective use of existing data held within government geoscience agencies. There are no formally endorsed data interchange standards, and the relatively fragmented nature of the mining software market further exacerbates the problem. Supported by AUSIndustry, a collaborative project between CSIRO, Geoscience Australia, Social Change Online and Fractal Technologies has just completed a test bed for real time data interoperability between data housed in ACT, SA and WA. A further AUSIndustry grant has been obtained to showcase this test bed and to extend the test bed to all remaining states. The key objective of the project is to raise awareness of what interoperability offers and drive a consensus view towards the adoption of data interoperability standards.

Executive Briefings and Technology Diffusion Workshops to demonstrate Interoperable Services

The SEEGrid Roadshow project will run a series of executive briefings and technology diffusion workshops in each capital city to promote the benefits of interoperable services to a broad spectrum of organisations within the industry, public and academic sectors.

  • Executive briefings will deliver a generic overview of interoperable services, what they are and highlight their benefits to Industry in terms of real capacity to save resources.

  • Technology diffusion workshops will give a technological demonstration of how the initial test bed was deployed and implemented across three states and two jurisdictions.

What will you learn from participating?

  • What are interoperable geospatial services?
  • What benefits can interoperable services bring to your organisation?
  • How can you maximise the value of your digital geospatial assets?
  • How can these services be deployed within your organisation and between your collaborators?
  • The critical need for standards.
  • How communities have been established to develop these standards.
  • What is the current state of play of these services in the Government Geoscience sector?

How can you participate?

Roadshow sessions will be held in all Australian capital cities from May - August 2005:
