Locate16 Streams

PROSPER: Our long-term prosperity depends upon globally competitive industries. Spatial technology and location information drive down business costs and provide new opportunities for growth in food and agribusiness, mining and resources, energy, manufacturing and health.

PROTECT: Significant financial and social costs are borne by our increasingly urbanised society when disaster strikes. The safety our communities continue to depend heavily on the effective use of spatial technology and location information by emergency services, transport safety, the insurance industry, defence, health and utilities.

SUSTAIN: We seek to end poverty and war, take action on climate change, manage our unique landscapes sustainably, and have secure and affordable access to water and energy. The achievement of this global agenda cannot be realised without the continued application of spatial technology and location information.

BUILD: Our society cannot function without spaces in which to live, work and play, nor without essential supporting water, sewerage, energy, and transport infrastructure. Building Information Modelling and 3D cadastres reduce costs, provide greater certainty and improve the quality of asset construction and management.
