1 The Australian SDI Clearinghouse Presentation by Peter Holland, General Manager, National Mapping Division, Geoscience Australia, At the Open Seminar on Implementation Models of the APSDI Clearinghouse, Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei Darussalam, 17 April 2002

2 Outline of Presentation Responsibilities for clearinghouse implementation Clearinghouse model Progress to date Plans for the future Conclusion

3 Responsibilities for Clearinghouse Implementation - Nationally The Australia New Zealand Land Information Council Strategic plan goal to develop a national clearinghouse SDI Standing Committee developing the conceptual model, supported by metadata working group and other stakeholders Federal, State and Territory governments Coordinated by State/ Territory coordination committees

4 Responsibilities for Clearinghouse Implementation - Federal Government

5 Clearinghouse Model The Australian Spatial Clearinghouse is an environment that facilitates access to data, products and services. It incorporates: discovery, transfer and access facilities; legal arrangements; coordination and management functions; the spatial information commercial market place in which data is value-added and integrated to produce products, services and solutions. The Australian Spatial Clearinghouse includes: multi-jurisdictional data and products (formed by joining jurisdiction datasets to produce extended regional or national coverage); links to clearinghouse initiatives in the States, Territories and the Commonwealth; government agencies and private sector businesses that form the spatial information market place. The Clearinghouse exists between data custodians and end users

6 Progress to Date ANZLIC The Australian Spatial Data Directory (ASDD) Metadata entry tool Directory nodes Search methods Participation in the OGC web mapping testbed project States and Territories Examples Land Information System Tasmania (LIST), Virtual Victoria initiative, New South Wales Community Access to Natural Resources Information (CANRI) system Federal government Examples National Land and Water Resources Audit (NLWRA) Atlas and Data Library, Commonwealth Spatial Data Committee (CSDC) web mapping prototype Geoscience Australia web mapping

7 The Australian Spatial Data Directory 23 nodes 31,000 datasets

10 Plans for the Future ANZLIC New technical working group of the ANZLIC SDI standing committee tasked with oversighting implementation of the Australian clearinghouse Australian participation in the OGC web services initiative State/Territory governments Federal Government Through the OSDM Facilitate implementation of a whole-of-government portal to fundamental spatial data Portal to provide a single approach to prices and licencing Portal will operate within the ANZLIC-defined national clearinghouse model and will be linked to the ‘Government Online’ network Geoscience Australia Online download and e-commerce facilities in place, and major fundamental datasets online

11 Conclusion There is a rapidly growing demand for efficient online access to fundamental spatial data in Australia and many other countries There are a number of good examples of public and private spatial spatial data clearinghouses around the world Although there are several good individual examples of clearinghouse implementation in Australia, a truly national solution has not yet arrived Australia started early in the development of the core clearinghouse elements of metadata and a distributed directory and these elements have been used extensively A national clearinghouse will need to involve both public and private sectors, and will need to link to regional and global implementations
