Presentation Overview

Landgate’s commitment to a Location and Innovation Hub is a key component of the Location Information Strategy (LIS). The Hub will be launched in April 2016. The Hub builds on the earlier success of the LIS program by further harnessing existing location technology capabilities, together with other emerging technology trends, to deliver greater economic and social benefits for the State.

Targeted outcomes include: reducing costs of doing business for government and industry; improving government service delivery for its citizens; and creating a stronger local economy – from new business enterprise. In addition to delivering economic and social benefits for WA, the Hub will act as a feeder to provide the location industry, with a pipeline of partnership and investment opportunities. This is focused on delivering future revenue and supporting emerging WA-based location technology businesses. Landgate has successfully developed the Shared Location Information Platform (SLIP) and leads the public sector in innovation.

The concept of the Hub is an extension of existing success stories, facilitating broader communication, collaboration and getting more people involved to solve real problems and opportunities. Landgate is already recognised as a leader in the Asian area providing consultancy and training in our core areas. To achieve this ambition a Blueprint was created to guide the implementation of the Hub in WA. The Blueprint was developed after extensive research was carried-out into other location and innovation hub-like entities nationally and globally, and consultation with stakeholders.
