The South Australian government has released a new web map that shows all of the state’s spatial data in one place.
“It is a really innovative tool that turns quite complex individual data sets into very valuable, user-friendly information that will support collaboration between government and industry and bring benefits to a wide range of people,” says Byron Riessen, general manager of the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA).
The map includes rest stops for long drives, walking trails, the location of every boat ramp in the state, mineral license applications and current leases, school zones, air quality, public transport options, school zones, healthcare facilities and more.
A vast array of open data is available to overlay on the map, with more than 160 sets already and more planned. Each dataset is searchable and the maps can be shared under a Creative Commons licensing agreement.
