The Victorian Spatial Council was established in September 2004 under the Victorian Spatial Information Strategy 2004-07.
Its members represent the peak spatial information associations for business, government, academia, the professions, and key interest groups.
All sectors work together through the Council to lead a coordinated whole of spatial information community approach to policy development, custodianship, management and utilisation, and provide a mechanism for cross-sectoral consultation and liaison.
Through its web site, the Council will keep you informed about its activities and the policies and tools to support spatial information management, and bring you stories about how spatial information is being used and developed in Victoria and elsewhere.
The Custodianship Program
The Council is also implementing a Custodianship Program to promote the principles of custodianship and increase the number of datasets being managed under formal custodianship arrangements.
