strategic partners & stakeholders

ANZLIC's strength lies in partnerships with all government jurisdictions, professional and commercial groups, and users of spatial information. Partnerships continue to be the key to a stronger spatial information industry. ANZLIC has developed key partnerships with peak organisations representing the spatial community, as well as with allied bodies representing users of spatial information. These partnerships have contributed to the growth of the industry, aiming to provide decision-makers in all areas of the community with access to quality spatial information services to help them make more effective decisions.

ANZLIC has actively supported the Australian Government sponsored Spatial Information Industry Action Agenda (launched in September 2001) to raise the profile and representation of the Spatial Industry in Australia. The success of this initiative was evident through the formation of the following key national organisations with which ANZLIC has developed close working relationships:

  • the Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI);
  • the Spatial Information Business Association (SIBA);
  • the Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information (CRCSI);
  • the Open Geospatial Consortium Australasia (OGC-A); and
  • the Australian Spatial Consortium (ASC).

ANZLIC has provided a clear direction on issues such as equity of access to information, limitations imposed by privacy and confidentiality, protection of copyright and pricing of government information. Its aim is to provide the widest possible access to spatial information, but to respect the valid interests of individuals and the community as a whole.

ANZLIC also recognises that there is a broadening application of spatial information by the community, extending beyond the traditional property-related applications. ANZLIC is building and maintaining close working relationships and links with peak bodies representing communities of users of spatial information in areas such as:

Productive working relationships continue with allied bodies, including PSMA Australia Limited. ANZLIC also has close ties with Registrars-General and Valuers-General to provide a cohesive community of technical and policy coordination arrangements for the whole of the property-related sector.
