Simon Greener: A Review of Australian GeoData and Providers


This talk will attempt a review of the geospatial data space within Australia. The talk will outline who the main players are, what spatial data is available, and the licensing options that cover their use. An assessment of the licenses will be made. In particular the talk will outline the data that is available for free and, and after establishing the various uses of that data, assess how important that data is to various sectors and individuals within society and how it might benefit society as a whole.
