NES delivers an advanced distributed data editing and quality conformance checking application to allow Local Government Associations and other organisations across the State of Victoria to access, analyse and update their geospatial datasets from a web browser.
August 26, 2008, GITA Conference, Sydney, Australia – eSpatial, a global enterprise geospatial software and technology company and 1Spatial, a leading provider of spatial data quality software and solutions today announce that through their mutual Australian Partner, Geomatic Technologies (GT), the first phase of a new web based distributed data maintenance service has been deployed for Victoria, Australia through the Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE).
GT, one of Australia’s leading providers of location-based business intelligence solutions, information products and services, developed the Notification and Editing System (NES) which provides a web based distributed data maintenance application, using eSpatial’s latest iSMART pure web editing technology, integrated with 1Spatial’s Radius Studio technology for processing, analysis and compliance. The new application increases efficiency and accuracy of mapping data using pure web-enabled map-based systems connecting data originators with authoritative data.
The NES deployment follows a successful pilot system delivered by GT and incorporating eSpatial’s iSMART web editing technology. The pilot was successfully used over a four-month period by selected DSE customers during 2007. The NES system brings this technology into full production across the State of Victoria and now also incorporates data quality conformance checking, developed using 1Spatial’s Radius Studio product.
The principle behind the system is very simple – to allow data originators who are responsible for key record creation throughout the State to correct or update the authoritative mapping data directly. With strict quality control processes built into the application, updates can be incorporated into the State dataset in a fraction of the time taken by current practices.
The applications allow data originators in Victoria, such as Local Government and State Government bodies, to directly access and modify authoritative property, address and parcel information through a web-based mapping interface. The direct access to editing through stringent access and quality control procedures streamlines the data adoption process and enables data updates to be delivered in shorter timeframes to end users.
Using the combined technologies NES users are provided with an easy to use and controlled environment to directly edit their data, from any web browser using eSpatial’s iSMART, without the need for other GIS tools and to ensure data quality against defined business rules using Radius Studio.
“We are extremely pleased to see NES go live following on from earlier work with GT and to see the incorporation of the 1Spatial technology as well”, said Philip O’Doherty, CEO eSpatial, “This is a great example of how Web based technologies can be used to streamline data maintenance and increase accuracy and efficiencies.”
Duncan Guthrie, Managing Director of 1Spatial Ltd said ”The NES is a perfect example of a complex geospatial data supply chain being simplified. The results are higher quality data being delivered in a more timely fashion, ultimately resulting in efficiency gains for all parties involved.”
“Increasing the efficiency and accuracy of our mapping data is a core requirement” said Bruce Thompson, Director, Spatial Information Infrastructure Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE), “NES delivers us a map based editing system allowing us to empower data originators to make modifications to components of the State database that they know better than anyone – freeing us to focus on delivering an improved service to our customers. This will result in reduced resource requirements for data originators, particularly local government”.
