Completed Mapping Projects

Communica works with government and suppliers to make mapping technology, data and related issues easier to grasp, to use and to benefit from. Here are some of our projects.

Victorian Spatial Data Custodianship

Ad hoc data sharing without custodianship

Custodianship enables private companies, agencies and government to share their data for the benefit of emergency services, each other and the wider economy, while managing risk and privacy.

We researched the needs and concerns of prospective Custodians, prepared presentations and attractive, easy to read Fact Sheets and Frequently Asked Questions and continue to assist with the development and implementation of the program.

Streamlined admin and much more data

Geoff Zeiss commented on the Program in  his Between the Poles blog

“It is now so much easier for us to approach organisations and for them to make the decision to become a Custodian”. Elizabeth Thomas, Manager, Policy and Business, Department of Sustainability and Environment
