Presentation abstractsSESSION 19.40 – 10.00amSpatial Industry directions and governmentupdateBruce Thompson, Director, Spatial InformationInfrastructure, DSEThis presentation will provide delegates with aninsight into spatial industry directions in Victoria,Australia and internationally and ANZsi, theAustralian New Zealand spatial infrastructureinitiative.SESSION 210.00 – 10.20amThe Use of Spatial Information in e-PlanningSusan Brown and Nigel Hutton, Department ofPlanning and Community DevelopmentLand use planning in Victoria has always includeda location-based process involving the preparation,collation and interpretation of a wide array ofmap-based information – for policy, strategic andstatutory purposes. As map based informationhas become more readily available in digital formit has opened up greater opportunities to make anincreasing amount of information more accessibleand easier to use.The e-Planning Roadmap is a five-year strategyto guide the development of planning systems inVictoria. Improving access to and use of spatiallybased information is a key aspect of the Roadmap.SESSION 310.20 – 10.40amThe Victorian Coastal Elevation ProjectNathan Quadros, Coastal LIDAR AcquisitionManager, DSEFuture Coasts is a major program of the VictorianGovernment. This program was initiated to assessthe physical vulnerability of Victoria's coast toclimate change, as well as develop strategies to helpcommunities respond and adapt to coastal change.The Victorian Coastal Elevation Project is a significantcomponent of the Future Coasts program. Thedigital elevation model (DEM) produced bythis project is being acquired by topographicand bathymetric LIDAR systems. Currently, thetopographic DEM from the South Australian borderto Western Port Bay is available, whilst the rest ofthe state’s elevation is undergoing the QA process.These remaining topographic areas will be availablein stages throughout 2009.The bathymetry (seafloor) is also a major part ofthe coastal DEM. The bathymetric LIDAR system iscurrently surveying the Victorian coast till the 20mdepth contour. The complete dataset including thebathymetry is anticipated for release in November2009.SESSION 410.40am – 11.00pm3D Modelling of Groundwater ResourcesMilos Pelikan, Spatial Vision InovationsGroundwater in Victoria is administered throughGroundwater Management Units (GMU), thatdefine 3D volumes of the earth that each carrydifferent usage, licensing and legal constraints.Effective management of groundwater requiresan understanding of three dimensional nature ofthe resource. The Department of Sustainability& Environment (DSE) has begun to explore 3Drepresentation of groundwater resources andcommissioned Spatial Vision to produce a prototypeto illustrate relationships between managementunits. This presentation will explain the key featuresof the approach used to develop a 3D visualisationtool to explore the relationship between GMUs andaccess related information.You can find more information 511.30 – 11.50amIntroduction to Free and Open SourceGeospatial SoftwareSimon O'Keefe, Geospatial Systems Developer,Groundtruth Mapping SystemsFree and open source geospatial technologies arecurrently delivering real benefits to organisationsaround the world via a model of collaborativedevelopment and zero software licensing costs. It'stime for local businesses and authorities to startexploring how we can make use of the global opensource movement to equip our organisations andusers with high quality GIS software.This presentation discusses why users and developersare turning to open source software and which opensource GIS applications are being used right now bylocal and overseas organisations. The presentationwill conclude with a showcase of ‘Sweeping Plains’,a municipal web mapping application developed byGroundtruth Mapping Systems using open sourcetechnologies.

SESSION 611.50 – 12.10pmOUTDOOR SESSION1.30 – 1.40pmThe Victorian Spatial Council UpdateDiane Daniell, Victorian Spatial Council MemberThe Statewide Emergency Services SolutionJan Wandek, AusSoft Solutions Pty LtdThe Victorian Spatial Council has been operatingsince 2004, and in May last year it published the firstVictorian Spatial Information Strategy 2008-2010.But who or what is the VSC? What does it do?What can it do for you, and more importantly, howcan you get involved?This outdoor presentation will highlight a StatewideEmergency Solution providing real time informationto the key decision makers, supported by ademonstration of a National Safety Agency (NSA)Command vehicle using this solution.This is the first of what it is hoped will be a regularseries of presentations at Newtech on the activitiesof the Victorian Spatial Council.SESSION 712.10 – 12.30pmManaging a National Property PortfolioCharles Moscato, Senior GIS Consultant,OMNILINK Pty LtdGPMS refers to a Global Property ManagementSystem, which has been developed for the PatrickCorporation. OMNILINK have designed the system toallow integration between separate existing PatrickIT systems, enabling the Property Information to beaccess via a web interface. The system is designedaround maintaining the property/lease informationwithin links to commercial Property Managementsoftware (Vision), as well as external links to essentialsafety information for compliance verification(Verified).The system allows property maintenance staff to beaware of when crucial dates appear on the horizon,so that they can action lease renewals, contractexpiry dates, or to monitor times when maintenanceis due against a property.SESSION 812.30 – 12.50pmSESSION 92.00 – 2.20pmGlenelg Online Mapping: a web platform foraccessing Council records & informationBrad Sharkey, GIS Consultant MakoMap onbehalf of Warrnambool City CouncilGlenelg Shire Council first implemented their onlinemapping system in November 2007. Since then ithas expanded significantly in terms of the amount ofCouncil specific information which is now accessibleto the public.More recent developments, such as the securelogin feature have allowed previously restrictedinformation to be made available for specific externalstakeholders. Some ‘maps’ such as property sales,are restricted to users who subscribe by payingan annual fee. In the past such information wasprovided on a ‘fee-for-service’, but in a more ad-hocway. Other records such as building permits areavailable over the counter in printed form, but usingthe online mapping enables greater flexibility interms of property searches facilities.This presentation discusses the online mappingservice in terms of implementation with a focus onthe ‘unlocking’ of various Council databases.SESSION 102.20 – 2.40pmManaging Assets – Spatially and GraphicallyDevelopment of Spatial Road/Pavement AssetManagement processes at Hume City CouncilRecep Alakus, GIS Administrator - Hume CityCouncilAsset database Upgrade project atWannon WaterGarry McLay, Wannon WaterHume City Council has developed a Roads andPavements Asset Management Application fullybased on processes of Spatial Technology. Thesystem also includes field data collection and workorder process with the aid of GPS, tablet PC’s andblue tooth camera and 3G/GPRS relaying data liveback to GIS server in the office.As part of an asset management improvementstrategy currently being implemented in WannonWater, an Assets Database Upgrade Project isunderway in Wannon Water. The objective of thisproject is to develop an integrated asset database /register that includes all infrastructure assets definedat a level useful for all stakeholders, in particularOperations and Maintenance. This project is nowwell advanced and expected to be completed in mid

2010. An overview of each part of the project ispresented as well as an overview of how this fits intothe long term improvement of asset management inWannon Water.SESSION 112.40 – 3.00pmA-Spec Local Government Data Standards andLandXMLGeorge Havakis, Managing Director, WorkforceSolutionsThe A-SPEC consortium was established tocoordinate and support the various standardsdeveloped for Local Government. Initially under thebanner of D-Spec created to streamline the processesundertaken to display all new drainage assets andtelecommunication conduits within council’s GIS &Asset Management Systems. The consortium nowhas developed a LandXML data schema.This presentation will provide not only an updateto the current program but also describe in somedetail the business case for developing a LandXMLdata schema and how it “fits” with other initiativesaround Australia such as ePlan and our ownVictorian SPEAR program.What are the likely short and long term benefitsthat Local Government can expect to receive fromanother standard fortmat?George Havakis will discuss these issues and presentan informative session.SESSION 123.30 – 3.50pmGPSnet & Positioning Regional VictoriaHayden Asmussen, Spatial InformationInfrastructure, DSEThis presentation will discuss Vicmap Position GPSnet and the services that are available includingStatewide Submeter Differential GPS and MELBpos2cm Network RTK. It will provide information as tohow GPSnet works, examples of how you can usethe network and the future plans to role out a 2cmaccurate statewide service over the next 3 years aspart of the Positioning Regional Victoria Project.SESSION 133.50 – 4.10pmUse of Digital Elevation Models for CatchmentManagement ApplicationsGeorgina Race, Sinclair Knight MerzHydrologically enforced DEMs can be used fordefining and modelling surface water catchments.A quality terrain model is often considered the basisof hydrological modelling. The new Victorian DEM,developed by SKM and DSE, has been created withhydrological applications in mind. This presentationwill outline the features of the DEM and describeapplications for catchment and natural resourcemanagement including : Defining catchments for water resourcemanagement including farm dams and wetlands Sediment transport modelling Stream order calculations Forestry management.SESSION 144.10 – 4.30pmNotification & Editing Service (NES) an updateJohn Gallagher, Manager Data Acquisition &Management, Mark O'Brien, NES Administrator,Spatial Information Infrastructure, DSEThe Notification and Editing Service (NES) has beendeveloped by DSE to facilitate the lodgement,examination and actioning of Change Requests todata held in DSE’s Corporate Spatial Data Library(CSDL).The CSDL houses more that 400 data productsincluding the Vicmap series. The long term visionfor the CSDL is for data custodians to be able to editand upgrade their information directly and makethis information available to users within hours, ifnot immediately. The NES is pivotal to achieving thisvision.This presentation will demonstrate the NES V1.0and provide an update on current activity and futureplans.
